Slow-Cooked Meals for When You’re Working at Home

Article Image

Whether it’s called self-quarantining or social distancing, many of us are working from home these days. The good news is, that opens up a whole new world of dinner ideas, recipes that require lots of hands-off time to reach perfection. We’re not talking slow-cooker meals (though those are great too), but rather recipes that slowly roast or braise in the oven to melting tenderness.

  • Recipe

    Slow-Roasted Pork Shoulder with Carrots, Onions, and Garlic

    Tasha DeSerio, who created this recipe, nicknamed it "housewife pork" because you can accomplish a zillion other chores (or your actual work) while it gently roasts in the oven. The best part: it makes plenty of leftovers to turn into tacos, hash or whatever you like.

    Slow-Cooked Memphis Ribs

    Low and slow is the key to cooking any type of BBQ ribs. But these oven-roasted ribs are perfect if it's not warm enough to cook on the grill (or if you just don't feel like babysitting the grill to maintain the right heat).

    Neapolitan Rib & Sausage Ragù

    Known as Ragù di Costicine e Salsiccia alla Napoletana in my mother-in-law's native Salerno, this ragù benefits from the addition of sausage, which gives the sauce depth and complexity.

    Classic Sunday Pot Roast

    When you want a hearty dinner of meltingly tender meat, turn to pot roast. Though it takes a few hours to make from start to finish, there’s little work involved, and it can be made a day or two ahead and reheated. Because there are vegetables braised along with the meat, it’s basically a one-pot meal.

    Chinese-Style Braised Oxtails with Baby Bok Choy

    Chinese cooking makes frequent use of under-appreciated fattier cuts such as pork belly, pork shoulder, and oxtails. In this recipe, licorice-flavored star anise gives the meat its characteristic flavor. You can use oxtails from traditional grain-finished beef or grass-fed beef, which, though leaner, will have ample fat. This dish is best made ahead.
