Holy man is this good, takes a while but is sooo worth the time. I followed the recipe exactly & would not change a thing. The pork makes this recipe so do as Kitten says & don't leave it out. After 3 days in the frig we had it with your meatballs over penne pasta & even my non-pasta loving husband said it was really good. High praise indeed. I simmered the sauce for 6 hours, did not use the optional sugar & did not add the salt as I am supposed to cut back on it. Thank you for another winner.
I had an unsmoked pork hock and didn't know what to do with it. So......recipezaar to the rescue. I found your recipe and knew I wanted to try it out. So glad I did, it was very good. Thank you for posting.
I ove all your recipes! I come from an Italian household. My family doesnt like my mothers sauce. I made this and it was a hit! thanks! I didn't use any other meat besides the meatballs from your recipe. We are not big beef eaters! Still was great. Can't wait to try the leftovers!
OMG! This sauce is amazing. This is sauce is better than the sauce at our local fabulous italian restaurant. I just made this today so it hasn't sat in the fridge for a couple days yet but even without sitting this sauce is fantastic. I just couldn't wait to post the review. I can't wait to taste it in a couple of days!
Great sauce recipe. It was completely delicious, and I am a sucker for anything with a long simmer time. As an added bonus the whole house smelled yummy.
This sauce was so rich and flavorful. I only made half a batch and it made LOTS! If I would of made the whole batch I would of needed to make it in a dutch oven because my large skillet was full! I didnt have a pork hock so I just threw in a couple pieces of bacon to get its flavor in. I simmered for around 4 - 5 hours. It thickened up ALOT. It almost turned into a paste so I had to add a lot more water to thin it out a bit. It turned out to be so good and flavorful without letting it marinate a day. We used it on Divine Meatball Sandwiches. I had some leftover sauce, so I froze it. Cant wait to try the rest after its marinated for awhile.
Delish!! I followed the recipe exactly and DH says I'm never to buy pasta sauce from the store again. My son found it a little too spicy toward the end of the meal so I may cut down the red peppers next time. I think I'll also try adding some mushrooms next time to give it another layer of flavor. Definitely let it rest in the refrigerator...it just gets better and better. Thanks Kittencal!!
I've made my sauce like this for years. People always wonder why I would use pork ribs, until they taste it. I also use Sweet Italian and Hot Italian Sausages. Yummy!
Yummy! i have made this 3 times with Kittencal's melt-in-your-mouth meatballs and they are so good. DH has requested these for when family comes tomorrow. I obvisouly dont change a thing.
Outstanding! Can I give 10 stars?!?!? So simple to make! My family is raving about what a great cook I am! (I just slid your recipe into the silverware drawer!!) SShhhh! :)
