Poor man's pate
Meat is expensive, we shouldn't have to throw away our mistakes. So I came up with this recipe by accident and I have been enjoying my mistakes ever since.
This recipe can be used as a spread on a sandwich (yummy with mustard) or as a delightful cracker spread with your cheese platter and some good wine! Enjoy!

How to Make Poor man's pate
- 1Cut your roast into chunks, removing any string, bones or other non-edible bits that may have been in the roasting process.
- 2Place in a food processor and process until it is a fine powder (2-3 minutes) making sure to stop to move chunks around to reach the blade as necessary.
- 3add garlic to the food processor and pulse until well mixed.
- 4add olive oil, one table spoon at a time until the mixture is the consistency of creamy peanut butter.
(WARNING: It will look gray! But it is still delicious!)
- 5add salt and pepper to taste
- 6Use immediately as a potted meat spread on a sandwich (delicious with mustard and pickles) or place in a sealed container and rest in the refrigerator until firm and easy to slice. I put my chilled version out with a cheese and crackers platter, jalapeno slices, baby gherkins, olive slices (and even some spray cheese) for a fun pate-like treat!
