  • Place all ingredients, except the foie gras, in large pot or slow cooker and braise for 4-5 h or until meat falls off the bone. Pick tender meat from bone in small pieces, set aside.
    Strain liquid and return to the heat, reduce until thick and concentrated (roughly by 2/3). When liquid has become thick, add just enough back to picked meat to coat and season, set aside.
  • For Foies Gras, bring lobe of Foie up to room temperature and separate the two halves.
    Using needle nose pliers, remove the veins from the foie gras. Season the foie gras heavily with salt and black pepper, place on a baking tray and bake at 375° F (190° C) just until it looks like a stick of melting butter, roughly 7-9’. Remove from the hot tray to stop the cooking process, set aside on a new tray.
  • Line a terrine mold or baking dish with cling film. Place a desired layer of the glazed, shredded bear meat evenly in the bottom of the mold, pressing the meat together firmly.
    Cut and place a layer of the seasoned, cooked goose liver on top of the bear firmly.
    Place top layer of remaining bear meat on top of foie gras, distributing evenly and firmly.
  • When done filling the desired dish, cover with saran rap, once again press firmly on top of terrine to ensure all layers are pressed together. Place in fridge overnight. Turn the terrine out of the dish by pulling on the plastic wrap, remove the plastic wrap and cut desired slices.
