Leftover Pork Roast –> Pulled Pork!
Yesterday I received half of a pork roast–what a gift! There are so many different things to do with leftover meat that I wasn’t sure what to do. Since we’ve encountered a heat wave lately, I decided to simplify life and take the simple route out: pulled pork. It’s a quick and easy meal and if there are leftovers of this, you have more possibilities!
As this is made from leftovers there are no exact measurements, it’s a guess and check kind of dish. I like to serve my pulled pork at room-temperature on buns with cole slaw and homemade fries.
- Place leftover cooked pork in a slow-cooker/crock-pot or oven-safe pot with a lid, such as a dutch oven.
- Add 1/2 to 1 cup water and BBQ sauce over top. Use enough water to cover the bottom of dish and enough sauce to cover the top of all meat. Use more sauce for a stronger flavor.
- If using oven, heat to 350 degrees F. If using a slow-cooker/crock-pot, turn temperature to low.
- Cook meat for 30 minutes to 3 hours, or until meat is heated and easily pulls apart. Usually 30-40 minutes is sufficient.
- Shred meat using 2 forks. Mix meat until covered in sauce, adding more if desired.
- Return to heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve on buns.
