Sunday Gravy | Pork Ragu with Rigatoni

Sunday gravy with pork ribs.

A slow-cooked Sunday Gravy is a treasured tradition for Italian-Americans. In the video below chef Franco shows the basic steps for making a Sunday gravy.

This Sunday gravy is made with pork ribs. It’s an absolutely “old school” and a delicious way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Typically this would cook for 5-6 hours or so on a low flame as it slowly develops more and more flavor. However, if you are pressed for time you can let it cook for 2-3 hours, but NOT less. It will not have the same depth of flavor but it will suffice for your hungry family waiting to enjoy a traditional Sunday meal.

The addition of red wine works exceptionally well and adds a delectable depth of flavor to the tomatoes and pork as they cook together. The pork ribs will be so tender, juicy, and flavorful it just might bring a tear to your eyes, their irresistibly good. Once your Sunday Gravy is ready try making the rigatoni pasta dish that is demonstrated in the video.

Buon Appetito! 🧑‍🍳🍎
