EMERIL LAGASSE'S CRETON



Emeril Lagasse's Creton image

Creton is a french-canadian specialty; this type of "pork pate" is certainly not healthy, but really delicious! I like it spread on toast or crackers, along with hot mustard. Many in Quebec eat it at breakfast. Prep time includes chilling time.

Time P1DT2h

Yield 6 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 1/4 lbs ground pork
3/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup whole milk

Steps:

  • In a large saute pan, add the pork and cook until no longer pink, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the onions and garlic, and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the salt, pepper, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the milk and bread crumbs and cook for 3 minutes over medium heat, stirring to break up the meat.
  • Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is very tender and most of the liquid is evaporated, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thick and all the liquid is evaporated, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and adjust the seasoning, to taste.
  • Transfer to a decorative bowl or several smaller ramekins, smoothing the top with a rubber spatula.
  • Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled and firm, at least 4 hours or overnight.

GORTON (FRENCH-CANADIAN PORK SPREAD)



Gorton (French-Canadian Pork Spread) image

French-Canadian pork spread for toast and crackers....This was my memere's recipe and so far I have never had any better. Very simple to make :) I guess from what I read, Croton and Gorton are almost the same, Gorton being the New Englander translation :) Enjoy

Time 14h

Yield 40

Number Of Ingredients 7

2 pounds finely ground pork fat
2 pounds finely ground pork
2 onions, finely chopped
4 cups water
1 teaspoon ground cloves
¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg
salt and black pepper to taste

Steps:

  • Stir the pork fat, ground pork, onions, water, cloves, and nutmeg together in a large pot. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the pork is tender, at least 1 1/2 hours. Use a potato masher to mash the pork mixture every 15 minutes as it cooks.
  • The longer you simmer the gorton, the better the flavor will be. Add water as needed to keep the mixture from boiling dry. When you're ready to stop cooking, let the liquid reduce as much as possible without letting it burn. Refrigerate the gorton overnight. Remove and discard the fat layer, or stir it into the meat for a creamier spread.
