Cast Iron Pot and Canned Tomatoes

I am making Andy Ward & Jenny Rosenstrach's Pork Shoulder Ragu ( https://food52.com/recipes... ) and am planning on using a cast iron pot as it is the best size i have to use in the oven. Is there going to be an issue as the recipe uses canned tomatoes? Is there something about a reaction? Suggestions and help please!

There was a somewhat extensive discussion on this a few days ago- most people seemed to feel that a well cured skillet was pretty safe with tomatoes, but it's really safest to stay away from it- I would say that with a larger pot and long cooking time, it's probably not a good idea.

Do you have the link to that topic? Was it an actual article or an answer posted in the hotline? I'd like to read it for my own kitchen knowledge!

It was a hotline topic- I think it was titled "cast iron conflict"- it wasn't more than a week ago.

Thanks for the answer - I have transferred it to stainless steel (not as good a size as the cast iron) but I don't want to ruin the pork. Many thanks!
