Recipe: Pork Butter



April 19, 2010


While it may sound like the latest overreaching product of pig mania, this delicious pork butter recipe from chef Nathan Thurston is actually akin to classic French rillettes. But instead of slow-cooking the protein in fat, Thurston braises his pork shoulder or butt until its fall-apart tender. He then pulverizes the meat in a stand mixer and combines it with butter; the result is a delicious spread for crackers and toast.
