Pulled Pork Leftovers?

edited January 2012 in EggHead Forum

We had some leftover pulled pork from a shoulder I cooked for New Years last week.  My wife was trying to figure out how to use the left overs and get a quick meal on the table.  She ended up opening a can of sauerkraut, slicing fresh carrots into it and then mixing the pulled pork in and heating until the carrots were tender.  She served this over a bed of mashed potatoes.  Pretty good comfort food on short notice.

Although I can eat pulled pork sandwiches till the cows come home I'm curious how other people use leftover pulled pork.

    Use it in Tacos, enchiladas, scalloped potatoes, eggs, green beans, a topping for ice cream (ok maybe not ice cream). I have also used "leftover" pulled pork to bribe the people I work with, works like a charm.

    You can use it in chili, stews, pasta, ABTs, dip. Just experiment that's where the fun is.

    I would do the following recipe from the bbq grail: (ITS SOME GOOD)

    Pulled Pork Cakes


    • 3 cups pulled pork, course chopped
    • 2 cups panko break crumbs
    • 1 teaspoon jalapeno, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon bell pepper, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon shallot, finely chopped
    • 1 egg, beaten well
    • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
    • Bacon drippings
    • Salt, Pepper and BBQ Rub, to taste

    In a small skillet melt the bacon drippings.  When hot saute the jalapeno, bell pepper and shallots until tender.  Let them cool to room temperature.

    In a medium mixing bowl combine all remaining ingredients and mix well.   I used about a tablespoon of BBQ rub, but you can use however much you want.  Form the mixture into three compacted patties.  I used a hamburger patty press to make sure they were consistent in size and firmly packed.  Lay the patties out on parchment paper and chill in the refrigerator until cold.

    Dust the patties in a little flour and then put in an egg wash.  From the egg wash put the patties into the crushed Bacon Croutons.  Make sure you cover both the side and all the way around the edges.  (NOTE:  When you open the package of Bacon Croutons you need to resist tasting them.  You have been warned, if you eat one you could find yourself eating the whole package.  They are that good.

    Fry the patties until golden brown in oil.  Place them on a paper towel or rack to drain and then put them in a 200 degree oven until warmed through.  Serve garnished with BBQ Mayo (Mayo mixed with a little BBQ sauce) or some other BBQ condiment.
