Slow Cooker Pork Ragu

Flavorful, tender pork easily made in the crockpot for a crowd pleasing dinner with such minimal effort!

This week had completely dragged on for me. The highlight of this week was catching up on Grey’s Anatomy last night. The show has gotten progressively worse over the years but I still watch each and every new episode, even though some of the main characters don’t even show up half the time. Like where was Patrick Dempsey the entire episode? I’m also not too thrilled about the outcome of Mr. Feeny.

Anyway, before I get all teary-eyed about the Mr. Feeny that I adore so much, let’s talk about this slow cooker dish.

The weather is cooling down here in LA (I can barely manage the 50-60 degree weather here!) which means I can finally bring out the slow cooker and make some pork ragu. It’s a simple recipe of searing a huge pork loin that gets thrown in a crockpot for 8 hours to get absolutely tenderized in a stew of so many flavors. Plus, this dish can serve an army so be sure to bring the leftovers to work or freeze the rest so you can have this comforting dish any time during the week!
