I was gonna say that! My mom used to do the same thing - make a large pork roast one night and pork chop suey the next. I loved it.

One of my favorite ways to use left over pork is to make quesadillas.

Onion, chopped in food processor
Pork, roughly ground in food processor
Grated cheese - I use co-jack
Hot sauce - I actually use the taco bell packets

Mix in a bowl.

There's no specific recipe because I usually don't have the same amount left over each time. I just go for what looks and tastes right to me - a cheesey meaty mixture seasoned with onion and hot sauce.

Pan spray a baking sheet, spread out some smaller sized flour tortillas and scoop about a 1/3 of a cup of the meat/cheese mixture. Spread out with fork into a thin layer. (You don't want it to be too full or else they'll fall apart when you go to eat them.) Sprinkle with a little bit more grated cheese and top with another tortilla. Lightly spray the top tortillas with span spray. Bake 350, 8-10 minutes. Finish under the broiler to toast lightly if you'd like them a bit crisper. Using a pizza cutter, cut each round into 6 triangles.

They are good dipped in sour cream, guacamole and salsa.

Another vote for either hot pork sandwiches (gravy etc) or the cuban sandwiches. Mmmmmmmmmmm!

the joy of a roast is leftovers to create quick or fancy meals with. But every one can be different. Even for only two people I make a full 7lb roast chic or 3 lb meatloaf. It becomes a very economical kitchen resourse.

A simple stew to put over rice or noodles includes cooked meat from some roast (beef lamb or pork, but even chicken works) mushrooms carrots and peas, a can of cream of mushroom soup, and a can of beer. you'll never know this is a canned soup recipe thanks to the beer!

make a Curry with it, or shred it and add it to beansprouts garlic and ginger with a dash of soy sauce, and roll it in Filo pastry to make spring rolls.

Only one I haven't seen, that's cubing it up and adding the pork to home-made baked beans. Of course, I'd prefer to stirfry with fried rice, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, onion, carrot, and bok choy, with a splash of soy sauce added. But baked beans are great, especially when the weather turns a bit cold. Oh, one more thing, the pok can be chopped and used in egg or spring rolls.

good, no one mentioned tomatoes yet.

simmer slices in an herby tomato sauce, then top with breadcrumbs and cheese for a parm style dinner.

or make a gratinata. sweat minced shallots and garlic in evoo and butter, add white wine and a little stock, add slices of pork to reheat as the liquid reduces a little. place a sage leaf or two on each slice, then top with a slice of breaded/fried zucchini or eggplant, and carefully grate some locatelli or grana padano on each, being careful not to get too much in the sauce.
cover and simmer just a minute or two more. plate the pork, reduce liquid to desired thickness for a sauce.

It all looks so good, I am going to make a huge pork roast sometime soon. I have made what a local restaurant up North used to call Pork Barbecue. It's simply left over pork roast, cubed, and heated in gravy with a little tobasco sauce. Served on a bun with diced dill pickles on top, fries on the side and more tobasco for those who like a little more heat. It was good. Haven't thought of it in years.
