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.

    • Actually, you just chose not to.

    • I've had a Marcum camera for many years and have found it extremely educational.  When I take new anglers on the ice, they love watching the fish.  Never had the camera spook a fish.

       

      I used a Marcum battery-powered panner to rotate the camera, and that helps identify my lure.  However, you also have to be pretty confidant with the depth of your jig, so that it will show up on the camera.

       

      I've found the camera of limited value during the summer, because it's constantly moving up and down, and a little side to side.  Even if I can find my jig, it's not for long.  What I use the camera for during soft water season is to identify bottom structure and get a general idea what's down there.  

       

      During hard water season, I use it primarily to see bites before they happen.  Not only do I know exactly what's near or looking at my jig, but I can see when they're actually going after it.  I have pulled the hook away from fish that were obviously too small, and also been able to set the hook on a bite before I could feel it.

       

      I love my flasher, but I have out-fished buddies with my camera.

    • Now that's funny.  I chose not to answer a ignorant question that an elitist like yourself could care less the answer to.  The only reason you want an answer to that question is to spend the next week trying to find some ignorant reason he/she is a bad choice. #rentfree
    • But you couldn't articulate who your favorite Trump picks for justices were, or why.
    • Many of the resorts / cabins where I stay on weekend fishing outings do not have a fish cleaning house. I also do not like the smell of dead fish from the cleaning process in my home. My wheel house is a fishing shack only, non-sleeper, which I take off the ice each night. It has both A/C and propane heat so I usually plug it into an AC outlet at night.   I decided to build a retractable / drop-down fish cleaning table 17” x 48” up and out of the way while on the ice and a warm place to clean fish. I use clear news print between the my fish cleaning board and the table to eliminate the need to wash the table every time I use it. Functionally works well, still needs some finish touches, paint, stain, rust treatment. I can also see many uses for this table while on the Ice. Fish Cleaning Table.mp4
    • Big win for the team today. Not many folks thought they would go into Carolina and leave 3-0. If this offense can get their sh$t together this may be a fun year. Defense is the real deal.
