Ideas for Leftover Pork Roast

I made a pork roast in the slow cooker when I expected my kids to be here for the weekend; their plans changed and now I have a roast to eat!

Of course I can put it in the freezer but I was trying to come up with ideas for taking it in my lunch. The only thing I can come up with is soft tacos with Mission low carb tortillas. Anyone else have an idea?

This recipe is from Linda Sue's website. I've made it several times, it's very good.


PORK AND BELL PEPPER STIR-FRY
3 medium green peppers, about 4 ounces each
1 large onion, about 5 ounces
3 cloves garlic, minced
6-8 servings leftover roast pork loin, julienned or cubed
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

Cut peppers and onion into large chunks. Heat the butter and oil in a very large skillet on medium-high. Add the peppers, onion, garlic and pork. Stir-fry until everything is nicely browned. Season to taste.

Makes 6-8 servings

Per 1/6 Recipe: 223 Calories; 11g Fat; 24g Protein; 5g Carbohydrate; 1g Dietary Fiber; 4g Net Carbs
Per 1/8 Recipe: 167 Calories; 9g Fat; 18g Protein; 4g Carbohydrate; 1g Dietary Fiber; 3g Net Carbs


Hope it's ok to post that Linda Sue.

Carnitas! My fave.

Cube up the pork into about 1" cubes. Toss it with fat of some sort - best flavor is with melted lard, but you can use coconut oil or light olive oil too. Don't be skimpy with the fat - you want each piece to be coated. Sprinkle with some garlic salt and a little cumin and/or chili powder; spread onto a rimmed roasting sheet or pan and pop it into a 425* oven. Let it roast til it's starting to brown and crisp a bit, maybe 20 minutes or so, then stir and continue roasting til it's as brown and crispy as you like it.

It's great with scrambled eggs, in a LC tortilla, or just serve with a fresh lime to squeeze over it, some guacamole and/or salsa, and a nice salad.

You can also cube it, throw it into a crockpot, and add a jar of green tomatillo salsa, some chopped onion and green bell pepper, and a can of diced green (mild) chiles, plus I like to use a can of green enchilada sauce but that can be hard to find in some areas. Just make sure there's enough saucy stuff to cover the pork pretty well. Let it cook on low all day and you have Chile Verde.

Or chop it up somewhat finely, and mix with LC BBQ sauce for pulled pork. Great with LC coleslaw!

when you make the carnitas, is the pork already cooked when you put it in the oven?

I like to add some sour cream to the gravy and make a stroganoff. Yummy over steamed broccoli or green beans.

Babsy, yes, make it with cooked pork. Sometimes I do a boneless shoulder in the crockpot with bay leaf, garlic, onion, and a LC beer - cook til totally tender - then cube up and do the fat/ovenroasting thing. LOVE it!

I used to take raw pork and cook it in a pot of oil when I made my carnitas. I got it from a mex cook book. The book said to put orange slices in it as well. But your recipe really sounds good.

I like to make sloppy joes w/leftover pork. I generally add onions, lc bbq sauce, and mustard. Tastes great over a big bed of lettuce. Top w/cheese slice.
