Homemade ragu is one of the coziest, most comforting things you can make on a chilly evening. Because pork shoulder is best prepared “low and slow,” start this in your slow cooker at lunchtime for perfectly tender, fall-off-the-bone meat by suppertime. The red wine-spiked tomato sauce cooks with the pork, so all you need to do is boil some pasta and dinner is served!

Directions

  1. Mix the pork, tomatoes, wine, onion, carrots, Italian seasoning, fennel seed, crushed red pepper and salt together in a 6-quart slow cooker until combined.
  2. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6 hours, until the pork is tender.
  3. Shred the pork into bite-sized pieces using forks and return to the slow cooker. Toss the shredded pork in the sauce to coat.
  4. Serve the pork ragu over cooked fettuccine, and garnish with Parmesan and parsley.

Recipe Tip: This recipe is easy to double to make more ragu. To store ragu, cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 2 months. Reheat before using.

Recipe Tip: Don't have a slow cooker? Braise in the oven at 300°F for 3 hours, until tender.
