A Barnsley chop is best grilled, griddled or pan-fried – it is quite large, so is perfect for those with a hearty appetite. Cook them for 6-8 minutes each side depending on thickness.
For a smaller but still meaty chop, try valentine steaks, loin chops or chump steaks or chops.
Also know as Crown chops, double chops
The name originates in our home county of Yorkshire and the story goes that it was first served at the Brooklands Hotel in Barnsley where they still serve it. There is some local rivalry though and the King’s Head pub, also in the town, claim that they were the first.
Our favourite is to cook the chop in a very hot cast iron skillet in the same way that you would with a beef steak.
Heat the pan until it’s smoking hot and then place your chop into the pan and leave it for around 4 minutes before checking on the colour. If you’ve got a really nice browning, turn it over and cook for the same time on the other side. If not leave it a little longer. When you’re happy, melt some butter in the pan and baste the chop before putting it on one side, seasoning, and then leaving to rest for 10 minutes or so.
