Cuban Pork Ragout is for one of those cold winter nights when you crave comfort food. The ragout is made in an instant pot using pork, bacon, black beans, tomatoes, carrots, mushrooms, and peppers. To flavour this delicious pork ragout I used popular Cuban spices such as cumin, oregano, chili pepper, bay leaves, garlic and onions.

The meat is tender enough you can shred it with a fork, and the veggies are firm on the outside and tender on the inside – not overcooked. All of this deliciousness is simmered in the most flavourful lightly spiced sauce making this ragout hearty and satisfying even on the chilliest of nights.

Spiced Cuban Pork Ragout, the details…

For this recipe, you first season the pork with Cuban spices and fresh lemon juice. This gives the meat a lot flavour. Once the meat is marinated in the spices you can start cooking the ragout in the instant pot.

The carrots and mushrooms are added at the very end which allows them to be cooked to perfection. When everything is done cooking you stir in plenty of fresh cilantro and crispy smoky bacon. I can’t tell you enough how tasty this pork ragout is.

To serve, add some rice or serve the ragout over gluten-free noodles.

I am super excited about this recipe because it is outstanding. The thing to remember is that ragout tastes even better the next day and the day after. The flavours develop and the sauce thickens.

I love to add gluten-free focaccia bread to soak up the tastiest sauce ever. Hope I got your attention now 🙂 If you try this recipe please let me know how you liked it. I always love to hear from you. You can follow me on Instagram or Facebook for the latest in gluten-free cooking!
