Sicilian Meat Sauce

My grandmother was Sicilian. I have a real fondness for this meat sauce.


3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

2 Pounds Fresh Pork Butt

2 Sliced Large Onions

28 Ounces Tomatoes

1 Teaspoon Sea Salt

½ Cup Seedless Raisins

2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Parsley

16 Ounces Pasta Of Your Choice

I a large skillet heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil over a medium heat. Add the pork cubes and cook until browned. After the pork browns remove and transfer to a bowl. Set aside. Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil to the skillet drippings and add the onions. Cook until lightly browned. Return the pork to the skillet and stir in the tomatoes with their juice and the salt. Bring to a boil over a high heat all the while breaking up the tomatoes with your spoon. Reduce the heat to low and cover. Simmer for 1 ½ hours until pork is very tender. When the pork is tender pull the pork into shreds. Add to the skillet the parsley and raisins. Stir and reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for another five minutes. Serve with the pasta of your choice. Serves 6
