Total time: 45 min



(*) French seasoning mix consisting of 5 parts black peppercorns, 2 parts grated nutmeg, 1 part cloves, 1 part dried ginger.

Dice the meat as well as the bacon, put it in a saucepan with the spices, add 200 ml of water and meanwhile simmer gently for 4 hours, stirring from time to time, especially during the last hour. The meat will have turned a golden brown color and broken down into its fibers.

Cool, fill into pots, cover with lard and seal with parchment paper. These rillettes, kept in a cool place, will keep for several months.

If you wish, you can also mash them with a fork or grind them after cooking.

Serve as an entrée with farmhouse bread.

Our tip: Use bacon with a fine, smoky note!
