We love our Barnsley Lamb* Chops cut nice and thick as anything else is tantamount to criminal around these parts. Prepared by our team of expert butchers, a true Barnsley Lamb Chop contains both the sirloin and fillet.
A double lamb chop, cut from across the saddle of the sheep, this is a famous cut that comes with a great back story. The tale goes like this: in the late-19th century Barnsley Lamb Chops were served to farmers on market days; a chop to mirror both the appetite and exuberance of those fine Yorkshire folk.
Chef George Ryle inspires:
"Barnsley Lamb Chops cook beautifully either on a grill over coals or pan roasted. Ideally cooked to a blushing pink, with beautifully rendered, crispy fat. Serve on a bed of barley, cooked in lamb stock, a couple of glazed carrots and a big dollop of mint jelly. Or with purple sprouting broccoli, cooked with lots of chilli, garlic and anchovy - some breadcrumbs fried in olive oil are perfect to sprinkle over the top of this ensemble.
Hasselback potatoes would be a sensible option; cooking them in lamb fat rather than oil is a fitting twist for this dish. Swiss chard or red Russian kale, steamed and then dressed in oil, garlic and a touch of lemon zest would be a good bedfellow to those naughty little spuds. Alternatively, perhaps a simple but unfailingly delicious side of creamed spinach, done properly it is a dish of depth and comfort and a perfect accompaniment to this Barnsley chops."
*Swaledale lambs roam free across vast distances, migrating between valleys and hill tops, foraging as they go. The limestone pastures of the Yorkshire Dales are home to a unique range of herbs, grass and wildflowers, the cocktail of which bestows the lamb with a rich, deep colour to the meat and distinctive flavour. Robust and slightly sweet in character, the Swaledale lamb also has a subtle herbal undertone; the provenance is unmistakably Yorkshire.
