All looks good!

I bought a pork loin on sale and made it in a Dutch oven. Sadly, I overcooked it to the point it tastes like really nicely-flavored sawdust - even with gravy. It's not burned. It is just too dry.

Not wanting to simply toss it (as I am my frugal mother's child,) I opted to use it with noodles and gravy. The flavor was good but still really dry. I need ideas to use up the roast. Am thinking about something like enchiladas and shredding the meat. Does anyone have ideas to use very dry roast?

When I have a leftover piece of relatively plainly cooked meat such as a chicken breast or pork chop, especially if it's ovetcooked, I like to dice them and reheat in a hot sauce such as Crystal or Frank's. Then add to a bowl of mac-n-cheese along with a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes.
Sort of a late night guilty pleasure.

Not feeling inspired tonight, so I fell back on old reliable smothered baked potatoes with ham, broccoli, and cheese.

When I have leftover pork roast, I often thinly slice or shred the pork, then warm it in BBQ sauce. Sometimes I'll cook up a 3 or 4 pounder just so I have lots leftover to bag and freeze. I put the sauced meat on toasted rolls with bread and butter pickles, tots and coleslaw on the side.

We heated some of the white bean and Italian sausage soup/stew that I made last week. We had it with wholegrain wheat with sunflower seeds bread. A sprinkling of parm on top.

I just remembered what my very frugal mother did with leftover pork and chicken.

We always had leftovers that were overcooked because of my 5 siblings, 2 always wanted well done everything. And then they ate like birds, hence the leftovers.

Undeterred, my mom would simmer the leftovers in a good tomato sauce until they became soft again, but not before they fell apart.

I like CG's idea of using bbq sauce as well.

If it's dry, sauce it.

Minced pork, mushrooms, red & orange sweet peppers, bok choy over Udon noodles.

Yummy but no pic (a shame as was very colourful)
