ISO of Leftover Pork Loin Recipe

Any one have any ideas on how to transform leftover pork loin into a tasty dinner? I've tried to have the leftovers in the past & it came out dry. I cooked it a few nights ago in a rotisserie w/dijon, rosemary, garlic & EVOO. Really good the first time around, but I always have so much leftover.

I'm open!

Cuban sandwiches.

Crusty bread such as a baguette, roast pork, ham, swiss cheese, pickles and a mayo/mustard mix. Toast the assembled sandwich on a paninni press.

Slice the pork thin and slowly reheat in gravy, then pour that mixture over bread of your choice (an open-faced sandwich).

We often slice it thin and put in a pan with BBQ sauce (Maul's is good for this) and a little water. Let it simmer for a while, then dish up on a bun and serve with slaw on the side.

It's also good mixed in with a boxed rice dish (Rice-a-roni, Old Ben's, what have you). Prepare the rice, then add chopped pork when you add the liquid to the the pan. Also add a can of drained shrooms, baby carrots, chopped red peppers, frozen peas, stir-fry vegetables...whatever sounds good to you.

Or use it to make pork fajitas.

Wow! Some great ideas! Especially the sandwiches. Normally I only cook enough pork loin for one sitting. Now, next time, I believe I will crfeate some left overs!!!

I usually cube mine up and simmer in can of chop suey vegetables, then thicken with a flour or cornstarch slurry and serve over rice, w/a sprinkle of canned rice noodles and soy . One of my fav's since childhood.
