What if you could have perfectly cooked pork available at a moment’s notice? Enter rillettes, a French technique of preserving meat. Dufour Gourmet’s rillettes are rich, buttery shreds of pork, ready to add a meaty bite to any meal. As an appetizer, they spread beautifully on Trois Petits Cochons Mini Toasts with a smear of Fallot Dijon Mustard. But you can also add them to a breakfast sandwich, dollop on a pizza, toss with pasta. A mealtime savior, stashed in your refrigerator.
- If you’d like to pair these rillettes with cheese, choose a robust sheep’s milk cheese like Pyrénées Brebis or a pungent washed rind cheese like taleggio.
- Rillettes are similar to confit in that they’re both methods of preserving meat that involve slow cooking and packing the meat in fat. However, confit is typically an intact piece of meat, while rillettes are shredded.
