Chopped/sliced and thrown into a veg stir fry almost at the end of cooking (make sure the pork's heated through properly)

I'd like to do a taco flavored rice dish. The pork has no seasoning, so I wouldn't be adding extra salt if I use a taco seasoning packet and some diced stewed tomatoes. I have brown rice made with turkey stock already made and frozen.

Barbeque sauce is the problem GG. The only BBQ sauce I like is sweet. I do rarely mix up a small batch with the pork, but I really shouldn't.

I like the idea of a Cuban RPC and medtran, but the roll is out of question. If I could figure out at way to make a breadless one I'd try it. Maybe I could sandwich the pork and Swiss between a couple of ham slices and fry it.

Gotcha. I have made a rice dish with taco leftovers and it worked really well. You can boost the flavor by simmering everything with some salsa. I often make my own taco seasoning, too. That way, you can control the salt. Commercial taco seasoning has quite a bit of salt. Here's one recipe you can use as a base: http://m.allrecipes.com/recipe/23625...oning-copycat/

You could also make Vietnamese or Thai lettuce wraps. Here's an example: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/v...-lettuce-wraps

How about Machaca con huevos Z? No reason you can't use pork instead of beef. Mix the shredded pork with some Herdez salsa in a buttered skillet and add scrambled eggs. When the eggs are set, add cheese and cilantro if you like. Fill a flour tortilla, or not. Ole'

This is what I made for dinner. I used the packet of taco seasoning plus, an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce, a can of diced tomatoes and a small can of green chilies and about 2-1/2 cups of brown rice. It was delicious!

I'll try using some salsa next time.

Thanks for the taco seasoning link. It was on my list of things to do. Now, I won't have to hunt it up myself.

I'll check out the wraps too. Again, thanks!

I find the Carolina slaw dressing is not as sweet, especially if you make it your self. I toss the shredded pork in with shredded cabbage and the dressing, allow to sit for a bit to marinade and eat as a salad.

This sounds really good, KL. Great for using up small amounts. I could have set aside some of the chopped up pork I used for dinner tonight for a tasty breakfast. Next time, I will.

I had an idea this morning for my inside-out Cuban. The deli at Walmart has cajun spiced beef that would substitute nicely for the Cuban. It's quite tasty, and the slices would be big enough that I could put pork, Swiss, mustard and dill pickle inside and saute. Maybe even do a kind of roll up.
