Lean wild hog loin chops will benefit from several hours in a flavorful marinade, but be careful not to overcook them or they will be dry and chewy

Scott Leysath, host of The Sporting Chef on Sportsman Channel, is always challenging himself and experimenting with wild game recipes.

Hog Loin Chops Ingredients:

  • 8 hog loin chops, cut 1 inch thick (bone in or out)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
