  1. yummy, but I think it’s a little bit dry, I always love my pasta to be covered with beef ragu and sauce ^^

    • Ah~ in that case, serve it once the pork is shredded instead of baking uncovered, that step is more for reducing the sauce!

  2. I love easy braising recipes!

    • Glad you like it, hope this one works for you! And stay tuned because there’s more of these to come!
