Left Over Pork Tenderloin

I have a large baked pork tenderloin leftover. Any good ideas for leftovers for lunch or dinner?

  1. Jenny, Cut the pork into small chunks and use it for stir fry. Because it's already cooked, add the pork after you've cooked the onions and veggies; just heat it through along with some Oyster Sauce. You'll be surprised at how well it turns out.

    1. Amusing timing. Minutes ago I finished my leftover pork tenderloin from last night. I sliced it into thin (1/4 inch) medallions, spread them on a plate with a little Stubbs sauce on each one, and nuked them for 35 seconds. I had a hoagie roll, toasted, with Boston lettuce and very thin sliced red onion on the ready. It made for a good sandwich; I would have added sliced tomato for more moisture. And these days, they come two in a package, so I will have this exercise again soon. I'm growing elephant ears for better ideas than mine.

        Speaking of two pork tenderloins in a pkg..When I get home I quickly open it up and take one out and wrap it in that blue freezer glad wrap and stick it in a freezer ziploc baggie..works like a charm..never any freezer burn!!

      2. I always make Vietnamese-style summer rolls with leftover pork, mango, rice stick, lotsa herbs, and daikon.

        1. either warm or room temp.... make a lovely leaffy salad, lay the slices on top and drizzle with a balsmaic reduction dressing - with maybe a drop of orange or something to sweeten it.

          1. I'm a broken record on this, but I love to make a tonnato sauce - has to sit overnight though to really get the flavor into the pork slices.

            1. One of my favorites is to thinly slice leftover tenderloin (esp grilled) and make a panini with the slices, arugula, goat cheese and apricot jam. Yum.

                  Heads up to a newbie -huruta's bread may be a bit stale after 21/2 years!
                  We all get caught up in a time warp here sometimes. But, welcome. And you may in fact get a reply.

                    I would probably use a baguette for this. It does sound good!

                    A cuban sandwich would be my suggestion too. If you can find cuban bread-great, otherwise just use a nice fresh french or Italian loaf, your leftover pork, some ham,dill pickles,mustard,and swiss cheese. Be sure to butter the bread. Just grill and serve!
                    A great sandwich.

                  2. I've often grabbed a pita and some tzaziki, hot sauce, lettuce, tomato etc and had poor cousin souvlaki....can be really great!
