Pork Roast Leftovers

Madeleine's picture

I made a pork loin roast and can't think of something good to make with the leftover meat which was just lightly seasoned with S&P and rosemary.  Any good ideas out there?

Shred it and use it with the peanut-lime vinagrette.

We always make tacos with leftover pork - yum, craving some now.

Shhhh, I wasn't going to admit I used mine for that. I was going to claim that I have a brick wrapped in foil :)

Ha, and I have a panini grill and I just like the squished under the pan better,depending on the bread.  Has anyone made Cuban bread to your recollection?

I have one too, but though it works just fine, the cuban sammich has to be made under zee brick :)


No, I haven't seen anyone post a recipe for Cuban bread.

Sorry, I guess I wasn't following the thread close enough.  Looking more closely, it appears the conversation was about a recipe for cuban bread.  I'll try to pay better attention :)

Actually, the conversation is about, Pork Roast Leftovers and a suggestion was, to make Cuban pork sandwiches which led to Cuban bread.

Yes, I know.  I do know how to follow a thread and read a topic heading.  But I was referring to the part of the thread that had morphed into the cuban pork sandwich discussion and then onward to the bread for the sandwich.  Cut me a little slack.  We all have an off day sometimes and I said "sorry."

OK, so what did you do with it? Curious.

Got inspired by the taco suggestion and made quesadillas.  Then the soup thread got me thinking and I made a hearty soup with the rest.  Wanted to try those pork sandwiches, but I was lacking ingredients and wasn't going out just then.  Next time.

Pork fried rice, Pork and noodles (dry or soup).

Pork fried rice is best made with day old rice (not converted).
This is the perfect dish to get rid of old ends of onions, celery, bell peppers, carrots, bean sprouts, cabbage, etc, etc, etc.

Same with the noodles except you have the option of using (cooked) spagetti, bow ties, (soaked) mung bean threads, rice noodles, chow mein noodles and any of the numerous variations of noodle/pasta.

Don' forget hot and sour soup...
