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


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.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
