  • Ready In

  1. Season pork with the rosemary, thyme, pepper, and salt. Heat oil in a large large Dutch over over medium-high heat. Sear pork in the hot oil until well browned on all sides, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir onion and carrot into pot; cook until onion is soft, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Pour in the wine; stir, scraping the bottom of the pot to release any browned bits from the bottom. Stir in the tomatoes and stock. Bring to a simmer; cook until meat is very tender and the sauce has thickened, about 30 minutes.

  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

We're still swooning over this recipe. In anticipation of making this today, I went out to get some rosemary and thyme. So glad I took the time! My only tweek was a spoonful of tomato paste, and...

We really enjoyed this. I had no problem with the sauce not thickening. I served it over mashed potatoes. It's going in my comfort food "file" to make again!

This is a very flavorful pork dish. I added one additional ingredient which sealed in the seasoning while the meat was being seared and browned. I dipped the cubed shoulder pork into flour. Dust...

Delicious. Needed something to do with pork shoulder that was quick! This was perfect served over rotini with a little parmesan cheese and some vegetables on the side.

I served it over mashed potatoes and the whole family loved it. I got a cheaper cut of pork meat and it still got so tender I could cut it with a spoon.

Delish! Made this last night for dinner and everyone went back for seconds. I decided to marinate the pork after I cubed it. I just put the spices and olive oil in a ziploc - toss in the pork -...

This is seriously delish!! I loved it, however mine did turn out kind of greasy, but that's totally my fault because I always fill the pan too full of oil. I didn't use any wine only chicken bro...

Total comfort food. Just made this for dinner last night over yukon gold mashed potatoes with roasted garlic. YUM!!!! Reminds me very much of my osso bucco recipe that I make, only so much cheap...
