Pork Liver Pate is really quick and simple to make. You will need:
- 2 finely chopped shallots
- 2 finely chopped garlic cloves
- 3/4 lb pork liver, cut into small pieces
- 1/2 lb unsmoked, rindless back bacon, cut into pieces
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 3 tbsp port
- 2 tbsp cognac
- 1/2 tsp mixed herbs
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
Gradually add the eggs, allspice, port, cognac, mixed herbs and salt and pepper.
Puree until smooth.
You will need a terrine of about 2.25pints. Spoon the puree into the terrine. Press down well.
Cover and microwave on MEDIUM-HIGH for 10 minutes.
Leave the terrine to cool at room temperature for 15 minutes, then put a small plate with a heavy weight on top and chill in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours.
