Pulled Pork leftovers?

jcanracerjcanracer Posts: 4,343 Moderator
I cooked my first Boston But in the slowcooker on Sunday, it came out really good!
Now that wife and I have had it two days in a row, she says the rest is mine (she's out of town and not fond of leftovers anyway). So now that I've already had Pulled Pork sandwiches, Pulled Pork with a side of mac and cheese, I'm kind of curious if there's any other interesting ideas to use the remaining leftovers?

    Diced onion, diced potato, olive oil and some cilantro. Fry it up in a pan and eat it like hash. You can also not use the potato, add a little chili powder and make some tacos.

    Even with a smoked 12-pounder, we feast the first day. Then I cut into 1½-inch thick slabs and put in the freezer for several great meals later.

    I only did a small one, like 3 lbs, and shredded it all after it was cooked.
    Since it was my first, here are some lessons I learned:
    - Pork shoulder has bigger bone than Boston Butt (glad I got the latter!)
    - 8hrs on low in slow cooker is perfect time.
    - slow cooker makes a ton of gravy since the evaporated liquid doesn't escape (must remember not to put too much liquid in there).
    - Next time will pour off all the gravy in a separate container to better separate the gravy and the fat/oil.

    But there will definitely be a next time. I really enjoyed this.

    I either buy empanada shells in the frozen section of the grocery store stuff them with the pulled pork and fold them over and press with a fork and deep fry. I also get large biscuits and roll them out and stuff them and fold over and press close. Then hit with a egg wash and follow the cooking instructions. You can also free it and use at another time.

    Redneck eggrolls!!!

    Egg roll wrappers from the produce section...spoon of cole slaw, spoon of pulled pork, splash of Carolina gold bbq sauce. Wrap following directions on package of wrappers, fry til golden brown.

    I'll cook a Boston butt just to make those.

    Trouser got the right idea, pulled pork quesadilla's are a perfect way to break up the usual ways of preparing it.

    I made a boston Butt on Sunday, along with some sweet sausages. The next day, i cut up onions/carrots/celery/garlic and sauteed it all, added beef and chicken stock. Made a roux from flour and vegtable oil and turned it into gumbo. I didn't have shrimp or any seafood but still, poured over some rice, with some Franks red it was pretty good. I also had some bbq chicken legs, i just cut the meat off them and into the pot they went.

    I always do this, freeze individual servings in a plastic bag, and forget it. You get a hankering for some BBQ, pull out a bag and heat it up. Also, one of the ingredients in our Brunswick Stew is pulled pork BBQ.

    I usually do two butts and then pull, vacuum seal and freeze the 2nd one. Easy to pop the bag into boiling water for a bit and have delicious pulled pork for dinner. Did some the other night over 4 months old, tasted like it was just done.
