Try it now!!

Almost a pork and onions stew, this sauce is smooth after the slow cooking of the meat, slightly sweeted by the onions and a little spicy thanks to the hot peppers.
Ideally served over wide pasta (Fetuchini, Linguini etc.) or large cut pasta like the Penne.
Easy and economical, this recipe will quickly become a favorite on your table.

Note-1: For a perfect sauce: use chops on the bone or add a soup bone to step 6

Note-2: Piquin chili pepper can be replaced by standard ground chili but you will need to double the mesure. The Piquin, although strong, is a very fragrant pepper. Ground Chili is not that strong and a little bland.
