Leftover Pork Roast

Morning All - I roasted a pork Loin for Sunday dinner. I now have a left over 2lb portion. Any suggestions? I was thinking of doing some sort of pork stew - thoughts, ideas? Thanks!

  1. Hello Mitchell, this is what I do now with my left over pork roast. A Fricassée..I have adapted it to my family, the fricassee for us I make with potatoes, onions and either leftover pork roast or left over roast beef. MOst add peas, green beans and whatever other veggie they like, I stick to the main ingredients so all my kids will enjoy it.

    I cook the cubed potatoes al dente, chop the onions and cube the meat.

    I then add plenty of butter and olive oil to a heavy skillet, I start with the onions, once they are translucent, I add the potatoes till they become golden, depending on the size of the pan, I leave the potatoes in and add the meat, or I remove the onion/potato mixture, brown the meat in more butter/oil then re-add the potatoes and onions, I usually season with thyme, oregano and savory, plenty of kosher salt and cracked pepper.
    Now my kids will eat this till the skillet is cleaned out, I can never make enough, and I always make sure to have home made ketchup to enjoy it with.

    Please try it and good luck!

        Vietnamese Subs is another option. You can also turn it into carnita for tacos.

      2. I like to slice it thin and smother with tonnato sauce.

        1. I love roast pork on my sandwiches! It's much better and healthier than coldcuts from a grocery store.

          1. Sliced and heated with some onions and barbeque sauce - on an bun with some cole slaw...a cheaters version of pulled pork.
