What’s Cooking?…Pork and Pistachio Terrine with Chilli Quince Glaze

Pork and Pistachio Terrine with Chili Quince Glaze.

This is a combination of ingredients I love to use.  It’s ingredients are simple and the outcome is lovely.  Good enough to serve for any occasion but simple enough to make anytime.  This terrine has a delicate flavor.

This is how I do it.


1 kg minced pork
1 large bunch of parsley washed and chopped
1 large brown onion peeled and quartered
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 eggs
2 slices of rye bread, wetted and squeezed out
1 tablespoon soy sauce
fresh ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shelled  pistachios
Set oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Put all ingredients except pistachios into food processor.  Pulse all ingredients until well combined.  Line a terrine dish or loaf pan with baking paper.

Sprinkle 1/3 of the pistachios onto the base of the pan.  Gently add half of the meat mixture.  press down evenly.  Add another 1/3 of the pistachios, sprinkled evenly over the meat.  add the rest of the meat.  smooth the top and sprinkle last of the pistachios.  cover with the baking paper.  Add a lid or seal with aluminum foil.  Bake for about 1 hour and 10 minutes or until golden on top and firm to touch.  Can be served warm or cold.  Turn out onto serving plate and pour over the glaze.
