Que boire avec une poitrine de porc confite au miel de châtaignier ? - Mets & Vins - Les Grappes

What to drink with a pork belly confit with chestnut honey?

It's starting to get quite cold and you'd rather stay warm at home for a nice dinner with your friends? Yves, Corsican winemaker from Domaine Yves Leccia has the recipe you need to accompany his AOC Patrimonio red wine: a pork belly confit with chestnut honey!

Ingredients for 4 people

2 fairly thick slices of lean pork belly (about 5 cm) - 2 very large tablespoons of chestnut or strawberry tree honey from Pierre Carli at Patrimonio (it's even better!) - 2 very thick slices of pork belly (about 5 cm) - 2 very large tablespoons of chestnut or strawberry tree honey from Pierre Carli at Patrimonio (it's even better!)) - 20 cl soy sauce - 4 cloves of garlic - 4 cloves - 1 bay leaf - 1 sprig of fresh or dried thyme - Espelette pepper

Preparation

  • Cut each breast slice in half
  • In a non-stick casserole, roast each piece of breast on each side. When they are well roasted, reserve them on absorbent paper. Discard the fat and rinse the casserole.
  • Put the pieces of breast back into the casserole, add the bay leaf, the cloves, the whole peeled garlic cloves, the sprig of thyme, the 2 very large tablespoons of honey and the soy sauce. Cover with level water and cook on gas.
  • When it boils, lower the heat and cover the pot. Simmer gently for 2 to 2h30: you should not need a knife to cut the breast. The juice should be reduced to the consistency of a syrup, but not too thick.
  • Adjust the seasoning if necessary.

Economical and easy to make, this dish can be served with roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli. It will go perfectly with the AOC Patrimonio red wine from Yves Leccia's estate: a great wine to keep in the mouth, well structured and full of red fruits and some spices!
