Tomato sauce

The best tomato pasta sauces I've ever had always had meat simmered with it.
I've forgotten what cut of meat.
I've heard that you can use pork chops or pork/beef neck.
What about ox tail, has anyone ever heard of that?

feel free to eemail me direct. cupboy@canada.com

welcome cupboy. You can use any kind of meat in tomato sauce - chicken is good, and a combo of meats is also good. Yep, I've heard of oxtail but never tried it.

happy 'sperimenting!

In addition to cooking meatballs, sausages and stew beef in tomato sauce, consider pork neck bones and bracciole. Oxtail or shanks can be used too.

Hi cupboy, we usually use a shoulder cut of pork and let it simmer in the sauce.

If you leave it whole, you will have a piece of meat to cut up after the cooking is done.

Or you can cut it in pieces first, and have a meat sauce.

Both are good.

Have found that the loin cuts, as with pork chops, do just not have enough fat to make either the sauce or the meat tasty.

Just my opinion.
