This easy ragu combines pork tenderloin with fennel, tomatoes, herbs, and plenty of white wine. Add all the ingredients at once, then let it cook in a slow cooker for around 6 hours, for a savory, aromatic meat sauce, perfect to pair with fresh pasta, polenta, or grains. For an extra thick sauce, shred the pork then prop the lid open and let it reduce for another 20-30 minutes. Since cuts of pork often vary in size, this is a perfect recipe for scaling up and down! Go to Prepare, click on Pork Tenderloin, weigh, and click Resize to adjust the amounts accordingly.
