How To Make Pork Ragu

This pork ragu is slow-braised and full of rich flavors. It's a simple and comforting dish that's perfect for weekend dinners.

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 3 hrs
Total: 3 hrs 15 mins
Serves:

Ingredients

  • 2 lb pork shoulder
  • salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, medium, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, medium, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 28 pz tomatoes, (1 can), whole, peeled
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 lb pappardelle, cooked according to package directions
  • parmesan cheese, freshly grated, for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F with a rack positioned in the center. Season pork all over with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, turning a few times, until browned all over. Transfer to a large platter.

  3. Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in the same pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrot, celery, and garlic, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

  4. Cook until fragrant and the onions are slightly softened. Stir in the tomato paste and add the wine; bring to a boil. Cook until the wine is reduced by half.

  5. Meanwhile, use scissors to cut the tomatoes in the can until finely chopped. Add the tomatoes with their juices, thyme, and rosemary to the pan. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Add the pork and any juices collected on the plate back to the pan. Cover and bake on the center oven rack for 2½ to 3 hours until pork is tender enough to pull apart with a fork.

  7. Remove the rosemary sprig and discard. Use two forks to shred the pork, then stir the pork back into the sauce to combine.

  8. Serve over hot pappardelle pasta and top with Parmesan cheese.
