- Trim any excess fat from the meat. Use a sharp knife to poke holes into the pork and insert the garlic into each hole. Place a large pot on your stovetop over medium-high heat. Season your pork with salt and pepper.
- Place the pork in the pot, brown all sides. Add the wine, stir to pick up some brown bits then add the onion, tomato puree, paste, bay leaves and enough hot water/stock to just cover the meat.
- Cover and once boiling, adjust heat to a simmer. Cook for approx. 75 minutes. The meat should be fork-tender. Carefully remove meat and place on a cutting board.
- Reduce the sauce for about another 15 minutes or until thickened. Adjust seasoning of sauce with salt and pepper. Cut the pork into slices or pieces.
