Pig ear terrine is offaly good eats
A while back I saw an article and video about making pig ear terrine. Since I love eating offal, I thought I would give it a go.
When I was a police officer some BBQ restaurants served pig ear sandwiches. They were called, listen sandwiches. They were dipped in sauce and served on squishy white bread.
While it may look complicated, if you take your time and follow the instructions, it is simple.
Sliced thin, it makes a good sandwich, especially with some good mustard or hot sauce and sliced pickles. It has everything. Texture from the cartilage, fat, meat, and seasoning.
Finding pig ears in supermarkets is challenging. One supermarket in Chicago along with Asian markets have them in stock. You also need a couple of pigs feet to produce enough natural gelatin to make the terrine set. I popped for a package of snouts for garnish.
It is rather straight forward. I added soy sauce, white and cayenne pepper. Since it is serve cold, seasoning should be aggressive. Check the seasoning before assembly and adjust.
