    My family & I really like highly seasoned food. As is, I knew this would be a very bland recipe. I mixed in Montreal 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 in the broiler & they were delicious. Would have given a four but as stated as is I think the recipe is bland.  -  22 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I added some oregano, parsley, and rosemary to the recipe. It added a lot of extra flavor.  -  24 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
