Pork “Creton” (Meat Spread)

15 MIN
1 H



  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.


  1. I also added the bread crumbs at the end of the hour this way the meat gets thoroughly cooked because it is pork. Then another 10 minutes for the breadcrumbs to be soaked up. Stirring often. Letting it set, put into small containers, cool, refrigerate. Yum. Have fun.

  2. Hi, for the spices I used a pinch of ground Allspice, pinch of ground Cloves, 2 t chopped Garlic. The aroma was" something smells good". The little t in the recipe is meant for teaspoon. A big T = Tablespoon. I am having fun with eating all of it by myself on crackers using a knife to spread. Good luck

  3. What are the spices in this spice blend?

  4. LOL Lucie what a cook ;)

  5. Thanks skyena D. is used Chinese 5 spices blend and the cretons are now resting in my septic tank....

  6. 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.

  7. What are the spices in the spice blend?
