Short Rib Ragu

This recipe comes to me from my Italian mother-in-law, I adapted it to cook low and slow all day in my slowcooker. 

In her own words:

"The key to yummy Sunday Gravy is a slow start early and enjoy your favorite Pasta with Sunday Gravy in the afternoon with la famiglia!

Also, the recipe is not precise. It's one of those family recipes that gets better as you tweek it to the way you like it - a little more of this a little less of that. Also, it can take a life time to perfect - just ask Robbie!"

A few months back I made Sunday gravy and brought it over to my mother-in-law as part of a birthday gift, I wasn't sure how using the slowcooker would turn out, it's a bit unorthodox after all. 

Thankfully it all turned out perfect and I received many compliments. See this post for pictures! I wrote out my adapted recipe so I can easily refer back to it and, mostly, to share it all with you all!

I hope you get to enjoy this hearty soulful food with your loved ones…
