A Cocktail's Perfect Partner: Pork Rillettes

When I have friends over for dinner, I want to enjoy their company and not be slaving away in the kitchen.  This is especially true when they first arrive and it is time for a pre-dinner cocktail. I always want to have something ready to go to serve with those cocktails; preferably something slightly salty, something that can be made at least the day before and something with a bit of a “wow” factor.  The answer is often Pork Rillettes.  The French name makes them sound fancy, but really they are simple to make (but no need to tell your guests that).

Pork shoulder is an excellent way to feed a crowd as it is both tasty and economical. It is a tougher meat that is highly marbled (there is lots of fat running through the meat) which also makes it great for long-slow roasting.
