pork pâté

Popular in Friuli and neighbouring Slovenia and Carinthia, this soft meaty pâté is made from pork and lard marinated in salt, pepper, wine and garlic, then dried and smoked, before being ground and mixed with a chopped onion, and packed in jars or tubes.

Also known as sassaka, or sassaga zassaka.
