Pulled Pork, other uses?

I think I have mastered "Pulled Pork"..so easy really, with a bit of practice..

But even the smallest roast makes a Ton of Meat once it's "pulled"...

what else can I do with it?

I've made a million BBQ sandwiches...

I made some very good "pork tacos" the other day...

any other Ideas?

Thanks, Eric, Austin Tx.

Dinner. Serve it with potato and a veggie.

Pulled pork freezes well. I portion it into sandwich sized packages and freeze it for future use. Works great.

A couple of times I have used leftovers (after making sandwiches etc) for chili...
Chopped fine and build your chili around it...Very tasty!! I've also made Pulled Pork Po-Boys....French bread, mayo, creole mustard, lettuce & tomato...

Have Fun!

what Andy said !

I use the pint-sized GLAD containers...each one is good for four sandwiches, which is perfect.

I've always had a problem with cooking in small amounts, so those containers also serve me well when I do Baked beans, chili, soups,etc.

it would be great in a tortilla soup, omlette filling, taco or burrito, enchilada caserole, etc.

I always freeze a few ziplocks for sandwiches, but also for this baked bean recipe. It quickly became a hit last year with all who ate them.

We make enchiladas from pulled pork, as well as tacos, or we get long soft rolls, butter and toast them and add the meat and bbq sauce and what other things we like on a sandwich, especially avocado, onion and lettuce.They are also nice in a lettuce wrap or added to soup

1. Save the juices from the pork roast and add back into the leftover pulled pork. Add a bit of garlic and onion, thicken with a cornstarch slurry to a gravy consitancy. Serve with your favorite sides.

2. Add juices and thicken with slurry after seasoning. Add sweet peas, diced carrot, diced onion. Bake in a miniature pie shells to make home made pot pies.

3. Mix leftover meat with chopped peppers of your choice, and onion. Fill homemade pasta dough to make ravioli.

4. Add diced carrot, rutabegga, celery, and diced potato to make a great hash.

5. Add as part of the filling for omelets.

6. Season with sage, garlic, cumin, oregano, basil, and red pepper. Distribute on top of pizza, or add to pasta dish.

Just a few ideas for you.

I only need two things for left over pulled pork: a bowl and a fork. I just love the stuff!

It makes a great filling for empanadas.

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.
