Pulled Pork Fajitas! (over a campfire)

KiterToddKiterTodd Posts: 2,256
There's been a lot of threads lately on things to do with leftover pulled pork.  Well, I came up with another this weekend that is going to go into the regular rotation, whether it is made at home or on camping trips.

Went camping with my kids this weekend and when I'm out there I enjoy cooking over the campfire.  I usually do something big for dinner, some comfort food for breakfast (bacon) and something easy for lunch. As I was looking through the freezer I noticed some leftover pulled pork I had vac sealed so I threw that in the cooler.

- I sauteed some onions, mushrooms and green peppers over the fire which had a little BBQ seasoning and texas pete mixed in.
- I had a can of black beans heating next to the fire, along with some flour tortillas that were wrapped in tinfoil.
- When the sauteed veggies were done I dumped in the thawed pulled pork just to warm it.  I stirred in a little beer I happened to have in my hand (these things happen) just to keep it from drying out in the hot pan.
- Pulled it off as soon as the pork was warm and lunch was served!

Veggies cooking;

In goes the pulled pork;

Topped with black beans, texas pete and some grated cheese.

Everything was tender and delicious.  Really knocked my socks off for something so simple and the kids loved it as well which is always a bonus.  The view didn't hurt either...

FYI - here is a top down view of my camp kitchen;

And some bacon I cooked earlier in the day... because you know... BACON!

Thanks for reading!

    Nice spot.  I'm going camping this weekend and just might have to look through the deep freeze to see if there is any PP.  Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks.  Yes, it's nice when something we take a lot of time to cook, can then contribute to a quick meal down the road.  All the flavor of a long effort, in no time at all.
  • very nice cook and I like the extra long handle on the pan  =)

    Thank you.
    That is on the Potomac River in Maryland.  It's a pretty spot.  Hopefully we get more campouts this summer than last.  Lot of rain last year kept the water high and the islands flooded.

    Great cook and easy banquet right there.  Nailed the campsite as well.  Congrats.
