    Now everyone knows this may be one of the most versatile of meats to cook; sandwiches, baked potatoes, tacos, enchiladas, stews, you dream it up and you make it happen. Well what happens when you just want to come home to a quick 30 minute meal and this stuff is screaming to be cooked. Well I have a suggestion....

    Pulled Pork Ragu

    Ingredients

    1 pound pulled pork
    1 small onion diced
    1 cup celery chopped
    2-3 green onions chopped
    4-5 cloves garlic minced
    1 - 28 oz can diced tomatoes
    1/2 cup white wine
    1/2 cup chicken stock
    6 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    2 tablespoons Tony C's seasoning
    1 teaspoon each chopped cilantro, rosemary and thyme

    Directions

    1) Bring a pasta pan full of salted water to a rolling boil. Add the pasta and cook as instructed, approximately 10-11 minutes to al dente.

    2) Saute the onions and celery in the olive oil until softened, about 3 minutes. Add to that the garlic and continue for about 2 minutes. De-glaze the pan with the white wine. Season the mix with half your seasoning. Continue cooking and reduce by about half.

    3) Reduce the heat to medium and add the chicken stock and the tomatoes. Continue cooking for about 3 minutes to incorporate. Add the pork and the remainder of the seasoning. Stir to incorporate, continue to cook for 5-6 minutes. Add fresh herbs and cheese at the end and continue to blend for 2-3 more minutes.

    You have now turned this.......

    4) Final step is to incorporate the pasta into the ragu within the pot, stirring to fully incorporate and allow the pasta to absorb the ragu's moisture and full flavor. Top with some additional Parmesan while serving.

    Pour yourself and nice glass of Chianti Classico, get some warm crusty bread, and enjoy Pulled Pork Ragu

    Excellent! Like you say, such a versatile dish for making additional meals.

    What smoke profile did you put on it for the low and slow cook? I’ve done this a few times and my wife thought the smoke overpowered the rest of the meal rather than giving the sweat and savory. So, I’ll have to use a different wood or less for the smoke next time if I do this. Just curious how you went about that part of the cook.

      I always due pork butts in my pellet grill with hickory pellets. Leaves a nice mellow smoke taste in the bark, not over powering at all. I agree, you don't want heavy smokey flavor overwhelming your dish.

    Looks wonderful. Will definitely have to give it a try.

                That looks and tastes like something I would enjoy. Just can't get hold of any wine st the moment or any other alcohol for that matter.

                    I have some leftover pulled pork in the freezer. It just might turn into this dish!

                      Thanks for this!!! I make something very similar, but add tomato paste and Italian seasoning before the wine and then use red wine and include carrots as well. It’s such a versatile go to, and agree with comment above about chuck (also shredded short rib works too!)
