Description

This Tuscan pork dish is traditionally seasoned with salt, pepper and herbs and grilled over a charcoal or wood fire. It's usually dipped in vinaigrette before and after cooking to add flavor and help form a crusty char. In this simplified version, spareribs and sausages are placed in the slow cooker with dry white wine and ground spices of your choosing. After six hours spent cooking slow and low, they're ready to eat.

1 carrots
