    Absolutely wonderful. It was simple and quick. My entire family liked it. I am going to try this on chicken also. Thanks for the good recipe.  -  08 Oct 2008


    Something else. My family & I really like highly seasoned food. As is, I knew this would be a very bland recipe. I mixed in steak seasoning with the lemon juice & a little water & marinated pork steaks for about 4 hrs. Then I poured off the marinade & mixed in the butter & brought it to a boil & then basted the pork steaks as recipe suggests. I fixed them under the grill & they were delicious. Would have given a four but as stated as is I think the recipe is bland.  -  08 Oct 2008


    Used different ingredients. I added some oregano, parsley and rosemary to the recipe. It added a lot of extra flavour.  -  08 Oct 2008
