ideas for pulled pork
anyone have any ideas for leftover pulled pork? other than freezing it (the freezer will explode if i put one more thing in it) i was wondering if there was something else besides a red sauce, pot pie or hash - though if anyone has a good hash recipe, i have been looking for one.
it does have some bbq essence but its not overwhelming and i still have the braising liquid...any ideas for that too?
Make a gravy out of the remaining braising liquid, add some veggies (e.g. carrots, potatoes, peas, celery, etc.) and make a "Pulled Pork Pot Pie"
Hash - finely dice onions, peppers, potatoes and sweet potatoes, saute with whatever seasoning and herbs fit your fancy and toss in the pull pork at the end to warm. Finish off with some hot sauce and maybe a couple of poached eggs. Mmmm...
My grandmother used to make a Brunswick Stew out of chicken & pulled pork (although, you can use just the pork) and is served at barbecues in the south. Essentially, it's stew made with tomato juice & paste, canned (or fresh chopped, if you have) tomatoes, chopped onions, celery, carrot & garlic, any type of mixed vegetables & potatoes, sliced okra, the chicken and/or pork meat and a little cornstarch slurry in chicken stock to thicken and simmer.
For the vegetables, sometimes my Grandmother used whatever combination from her garden but sometimes she just used frozen mixed. This would be a great place to use your braising liquid and sauce instead of the tomato juice. She always served with fried cornbread or homemade hot out the wood oven biscuits.....
I've added five spice powder, hoisin sauce and made steamed pork buns. I've also rolled the pulled pork in flour tortillas with pepper jack cheese, deep fried them to make flautas.
