I'll bet if you season your pork chops with s&p, grill 'em, and top with butter, a dash of fresh squeezed lemon juice, maybe a touch of fresh garlic, and a few sprigs of fresh rosemary....Ahhhh, my mouth is watering right now! smile

Heres one I make with variations quite often. I made it with boneless porkchops the other night. I took the chops and butterflyed em all the way through first.

You can finish the dish with either crem fresh, sour cream, crumbly blue, gorgonzola, some redhot... cool

The juice of a fresh lemon really makes the dish pop...

I brown my pork chops in a hot frying pan and put them on a baking pan that has a small lip so the juices don't spill. A pizza pan will not work. Season with a little seasoned salt and pepper. The I slice my lemon quite thick and lay it on top of the chops. Next place a rounded tablespoon of well packed brown sugar on top of the lemon and cover with a healthy squeeze of ketchup. Bake at 350 until done. That will depend on the thickness of the chop. The brown sugar will melt combining with the lemon and ketchup and form a tangy sauce. Very easy and actually quite tasty when you are looking for something different.

I lived in Northern Italy for a while when I was young and they use fresh Lemon juice on grilled steak and of course, Veal.

I make an easy family favorite with Chicken Breast called Chicken Picatta:

4- fresh chicken breasts, boned, skin removed.

4-Tbsps. Capers

Juice from one fresh Lemon

3-4Tbsps. Toasted Pine Nuts (Pignolis)available at Cub bulk section or any other better grocery store.

1/2 C. flour for dredging breasts.

3-4 Tbsps. butter

Procedure:

Place breasts between 2 pieces of Saran wrap and pound flat to uniform thickness.

In a large non-stick saute pan over med.high heat, melt 2 tbsps. butter, dredge breasts through flour shake off excess and place in pan. saute for 2-3 mins.per side, adding butter as you flip breasts over--keep from getting dry in the pan.

Before going to "Plate", drizzle lemon juice over breasts, reduce heat, add capers, coat breasts with pan juices and serve with Pine Nuts and Capers sprinkled over the top of each breast.

You can serve this with your favorite Rice, Mashed Potatos or good bread for a light meal.

NOTE--You can use Veal for this too, but Chicken is favored by the kids and costs a lot less.

Serves 4 or Two Adults with appetites.

I make a beefed up teriyaki sauce that goes over well. Its awesome on venison, Ive used it to get people that swear they wont eat venison to eat it, and they did, and enjoyed it .I found out that the key is the lemon juice because of the acid in it, and its ability to tenderize the meat.

1/4 cup Teriyaki

1/4 cup Soy Sauce

1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce

1/4 cup lemon juice

Next time you roast a chicken, fill the cavity with quarted lemons, onions & rosemary. Sqeeze some of that juice over the bird, then salt and pepper. Under the breast skin, stick a couple dabs of butter.

In the roaster, set the bird on top of cut up carrots and celery and pour in a 1/2 cup of water or chicken broth. A friend of mine raised some chickens and gave me a 9 lber that I cooked on Sunday. Turned out great. 350 for 20 min per pound. It doesn't get much easier than this.

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though. No use debating, though.      You guys would make me walk out first, wouldn't ya?      O this stupid merge junk....$#@! son of a 
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
