There are two deliciously tender Hogget Barnsley Chops in each pack – this lovely cut bears a Northern name (the clue is in the name, Barnsley which is in Yorkshire, is in the North of England). Though a Barnsley chop is also known as a saddle chop, the name has stuck from its northern roots and become the definitive name for what is essentially a double loin lamb chop.
Sometimes referred to as a saddle chop, as it is cut across the saddle, a Barnsley chop is taken from right across the loin, hence producing a double-sided chop. Some say it requires a longer cooking time than an ordinary lamb chop, but, like the latter, the overall cooking time is short, and the chop must also be rested once cooked to soften the meat.
Delicious with mint gravy or Cumberland Sauce.
