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.

    • The name of the lake is long. It's between hawick and new London off hwy 23. East of Willmar. It's pretty clear water so your best bet  with eyes is early or late. Actually catch more eyes by accident fishin panfish.
    •   Not sure how the wife will like it, but it's kind of fun roughing it.  I know the area is pretty good for Bear's and Wolves!  And we do get a few Deer once in a while. The nice thing about being so far in, is the bait piles you can make! 
    •   With the 40 acres? Both hopefully. We still grouse hunt and deer hunt up there occasionally. There is a small cabin there but there is not a well or electricity. It is very primitive, but that's kind of what I like about it.
    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
