Rillettes of Pork Recipe

Rillettes of Pork (rillettes de porc) Recipes

Ingredients :

1.5lb lean pork

1lb pork fat

1 piece pork skin

7 fl oz dry white wine

parsley, thyme and bay leaf

2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 pint water

Method :

Cut all the meat and fat into pieces, taking care to cut with the grain to retain the meat's long fibers. Put the skin in the bottom of a casserole and then the rest of the ingredients. Do not stint the parsley. Cover and cook in a slow oven 120C, 225F, Gas 1/2 for about 5 hours, by which time the meat should be soft and squash between the fingers. Leave to stand for a short while. Skim off the fat and reserve. Discard the pork skin and bay leaf and, using a fork and spoon or two forks, tear the meat into shreds. The result should be a stringy mass. Check the seasoning and put the meat into small jars while it is still warm. When cold, melt and pour in the reserved fat to cover the top of each jar. Store in a cool place.
