Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

    2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

    1 tbsp rosemary leaves

    Finely grated rind of 1 lemon

    4 Barnsley chops (about 180g each)

    400g frozen peas, defrosted

    60g butter, coarsely chopped

    Mint sauce

    4 tbsp white grape vinegar

    55g caster sugar

    1 cup (firmly packed) mint, coarsely chopped


Method

  • For mint sauce, combine vinegar, caster sugar and 2 tbsp water in a small saucepan over medium heat.

    Bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve sugar.

    Remove from heat, cool slightly, stir in mint, season to taste and set aside.

    Preheat oven to 180°C.

    Combine oil, garlic, rosemary and half the lemon rind in a bowl.

    Add chops, turn to coat and season to taste.

    Heat a large char-grill pan over medium-high heat.

    Add chops and cook, turning once, until golden (1-2 mins each side).

    Transfer to an oven tray lined with baking paper and roast in oven until cooked to your liking, 5-6 mins for medium.

    Cover loosely with foil and set aside in a warm place to rest, 5 mins.

    Cook peas in boiling salted water until bright green, 1-2 mins, then drain, reserving 40ml cooking water.

    Return peas to pan with reserved water, butter and remaining lemon rind, coarsely crush with a fork and season to taste.

    Serve hot with Barnsley chops and mint sauce.
