Recipe: Pork Rillettes

Pop quiz: what's the difference between rillettes and pâté? It's a blurry line: pâté is a mixture of ground meat and fat blended into a silky, spreadable paste, while the texture of rillettes is often decidedly more rustic. Some sources claim that rillettes are a "poor man's pâté" since it's crafted from cheaper cuts. Semantics aside, there's nothing unfortunate about this recipe for unctuous pork rillettes from James John Café in Portland.
