Question What do I do with a small piece of pork shoulder?

I bought a really big pork shoulder, and I have a big crock pot, but when I put it in this morning for pulled pork, it wouldn't fit in the crock pot. I cut off a corner of the roast to make things work out. My question is, what should I do with the small piece ( maybe a half pound) of pork shoulder in the fridge that I cut off this morning? Any ideas out there?

It would be in my freezer to save for later. Sounds like you've got a lot of CP pork. What time is dinner?

Do you think it would be ok to re freeze? I had it frozen, and thawed it a couple of days before chopping it off of the mother ship.

Can you be here by 7:00 MST Dawg? That gives you a little less than five hours to get here!

You could chop it up (FP) and use it to make a meat sauce for pasta.

I've never used pork this way. Do you have a TNT recipe?

Or you could braise it and make carnitas. I also like the pasta sauce idea. Look for an authentic bolognese recipe
