This pork ragout recipe is absolute comfort food straight from your slow cooker.

A while back, I asked people to tell me what recipes they’d like to see on my blog. Pork Ragout was one of the many, many requests.

A close up view of a single while bowl containing this Clean Eating Slow Cooker Pork Ragout. It has two spoons on either side of the bowl, ready to serve this bowl of deliciousness.

I just couldn’t see my way clear of cooking this on the stove when my slow cooker was calling my name, so I did this slow cooker version and I’m really happy with how it turned out. There’s no way I could have gotten the pork to turn out this perfect on the stove top. It was tender and flavorful and just perfect for enjoying over pasta.

This Clean Eating Slow Cooker Pork Ragout has just been served. The bowls of food are still sitting next to the slow cooker and both white dishes are full and ready to serve.

Plus, we had leftovers, which is always a good thing!

A slow cooker is such a great way to cook almost any meat that needs to be truly moist and tender.


  1. Cook your pasta separately. You can do this prior to the slow cooker being finished, or do it immediately and store in the fridge.
  2. Prep the meat and produce and layer in the slow cooker in the order listed.
  3. When the slow cooker is finished cooking, shredded the meat and ladle over the pasta to serve.


It’s easy to think that one is a misspelling of the other. But they are, in fact, two different dishes.

  • Ragout – A slow cooked French stew that is typically made with meat or fish. It is a richer, more heavily spiced stew than a typical American stew. The meat usually gets very heavily spiced/seasoned.
  • Ragu – An Italian pasta sauce that typically contains some sort of ground (or other) meat.

This is a collage of the steps for making this Clean Eating Slow Cooker Pork Ragout recipe.

    Ha! Nothing like a little elbowing to make you try something, eh? Glad you’re enjoying the process! Cooking can be such fun!

  3. graciouspantry says:

    Layering is important. Make sure the tomatoes are on top of the pork or the meat won’t get tenderized properly.

  4. graciouspantry says:

    Glad you enjoyed it!

  5. graciouspantry says:

    How awesome is that???!!! Glad you enjoyed everything! 🙂

  6. graciouspantry says:

    Yes, it can be frozen.

  7. graciouspantry says:

    You could try it, but be sure you use a slow cooker that will be mostly filled by that amount of food. Keep in mind also that high and low do not indicate a temperature. They indicate how long it takes for the slow cooker to reach the one and only temperature it cooks at. I think 10 hours would really be pushing it, but you may be able to get away with 8.
