    Cheeseburger in Paradise's Note:

    I quote Anthony Bourdain "Jesus this dish is easy." A kind of pate like dish. Smear on toasted baguette croutons, have a cocktail and let the party begin...this is a WONDERFUL appetizer!!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8-10

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 lbs pork belly, cut into 2 in cubes (5 cm)
    • 1 lb pork shoulder, cut into 2 in cubes (5cm)
    • 4 cups water
    • 1 bouquet garni (1 sprig flat parsley, 2 sprigs of fresh thyme, 1 bay leaf -all tied with a string so its easy to ret)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 pinch black pepper
    • 1 lb pork fat, cut into thin slices

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the pork belly and shoulder in a heavy bottomed pot. Add water and the bouquet garni and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally.
    2. 2
      After 6 hours, stir in the salt and pepper and remove from the heat. Discard the bouquet garni.
    3. 3
      Once the meat is cooled enough to handle, transfer it to a mixing bowl, using forks, shred the meat (not mush, SHREDS is the key)
    4. 4
      Shovel some still warm pork into your mouth -- you know you want to.
    5. 5
      Divide the mixture among several small containers. Top each portion with a slice or two of pork fat to completely cover it, fold the mixture together a bit then wrap each container in plastic wrap.
    6. 6
      Place in the refrigerator and let them sit for 3 days before serving. Don't cheat on the 3 days because it just gets better as the flavors marry up!
