Pulled Pork

Using up the last little bit of shredded pork i have left in the freezer from making pulled pork and, I was thinking of making a crockpot stew but, every one I have found calls for raw pork.

Anyone have anything good using cooked pork to make a nicely flavored hearty stew!

  1. you need to make some kind of sauce and then slowly heat the meat in that.

    i like asian flavors with pork, so ginger, soy, lemongrass or lime zest and coconut milk would work for me. dunno if you're looking for a more bbq-ish type-thingie.

    you can't really reverse-engineer a stew, per se.

    1. I occasionally take cooked pork, toss it into a pan with diced onions and a little oil, brown a little, and add a can of green chili enchilada sauce. Ok as a stew over rice or home fries or in stacked enchiladas topped with crumbled Cotija and a fried egg.

        Huevos carnitas -- fried eggs on leftover pulled pork with green onions & hot sauce.

          Also along the same lines - soften dry chiles with some chicken stock and puree with roasted onion and garlic, add the cooked pork and simmer until thickened. Use the pork as a taco filling or pile high on corn tortillas with some sliced avocado, queso fresco, cilantro and a squeeze of lime.

        2. I have sort-of done this making beans in the slow cooker, cooking with broth and some smoked turkey and pork rib bones. Then, when the beans were mostly cooked, removed the bones and put the pulled pork in just long enough to heat through. Worked well for me!

          1. Had some leftover pulled pork in the fridge from sandwich making, so zapped a potato in the microwave and put the heated pork on top. With veggie and salad, was an easy summer meal.
