Recipe For Pork Ragu Neapolitan

I think the most popular ragù recipe would be the one for bolognese. I have made my pork ragu in the Neapolitan style using meat, a sofrito and tomatoes.

Head straight on to the recipe for Pork Ragu ♥

This past December holiday I made a deal with myself. I would spend a maximum of one hour on my computer. In years gone by I have tried to do too much computer work and ended up frustrated. I also decided that I would do a maximum of one recipe per day. But I would not worry about my blog. One recipe could be anything. From a meal for us, or a meal to share with friends like my homemade pasta with pork ragu. I chose to blog this recipe as the ragu had so much flavour. The pasta was not a huge success but that was my fault. I completely forgot to knead the dough! My main priority for the break was to read books. To me, that is doing nothing. I want to try and catch up with my reading list.

I still have my December books from Penguin that need reading and reviewing. As well as a pile of books that my mom sent me. Added to that are the books I have bought for our library at home. Whereas I am nowhere near completing the reading task I can say that I relaxed. We slept in late, had lazy breakfasts and did what made our hearts happy. That is the perfect way to start a new year. What did you get up to in December that made your heart happy?

  1. That sauce looks luscious. I also took a break from ‘computing’ over the holidays as it was just consuming my life. I caught up on a couple of books but the pile is still high. I intend to take a few away with us in March, that I can leave behind as we go. I find that when I go to a non English speaking country that my reading levels go up as I’m not distracted by TV etc. I haven’t been commenting much lately because of outside concerns but I am still reading your blog!

  3. Love a good ragu, that meaty rich sauce! Delicious. I haven’t tried it with pork before, only with beef. I imagine the pork would be a nice flavour and not quite as heavy as a beef ragu.

  12. Dear Tandy, I completely understand the “computer frustration” and miss reading a lot. I have promised myself to catch up the list of “the books to read” and to slow down and have at least 30 minutes more for me every single day. So far, I am successful in having time off but honesty cannot define if it is the tremendous amount of snow and cold winds out there or is it really me 🙂
    Thank you for this ragu. Perfect comfort dish for extreme weather conditions !
