  1. In a saucepan, sweat the onion, shallots and garlic in the butter. Add the pork, breadcrumbs, milk, chicken broth and spices, making sure to blend well. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Cover and simmer over very low heat for one hour, stirring occasionally. Cook, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated.

    I didn't bother sweating the onions and garlic. I just put it all into a pot to simmer. I used 2 cups of soft breadcrumbs instead of dry, and I soaked them in the milk before adding it to the pork. I also used regular pork, so added just a tbsp of butter. For the spice blend, I used 1/2 tsp each of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. You could always adjust these to your liking.
