Pork Shoulder Genovese


1/4 lb pork shoulder
1 red onion sliced into quarter rings
1 carrot sliced into strips
1/2 cube of chicken bouillon
2 garlic cloves
1 can plum tomatoes or fresh plum tomatoes
2 tbsp dried basil
½ tsp oregano
½ tsp thyme
½ tsp rosemary
6 oz red wine
1/4 cup shredded smoked Gouda
2 cups arugula or to taste
3/4 cup of Casarecce Pasta
1 cup of fresh basil for garnish
Salt and Pepper for pork shoulder rub

Slice your Pork Shoulder into 1/2 inch to 1 inch slices. Rub Salt and Pepper into your pork shoulder and place into your rice cooker.
Slice onion and carrot and place it into rice cooker. Place garlic cloves and tomatoes into the rice cooker.
Add basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary and wine into your sauce and close the lid. Press slow cook function and set the timer for 5 hours.
When your sauce is done cooking, shred your pork shoulder in the sauce.
Boil water and cook your pasta until “al dente” (It usually takes around 10-11 minutes).In a large bowl, incorporate your arugula, pasta, pasta sauce, and shredded cheese.
Serve hot and garnish with basil.

The sauce tastes even better a day later so save some for later!

  1. My rice cooker only has “Warm” and “Cook”. Will this work for it? If not, will it work in the crock pot?

    1. Hi Christina, so sorry for the late response! I don’t think it will work without slow cook function because Cook function is too much heat while Warm is not enough. You can try with your Crock Pot! Let us know 🙂 We are curious too.
