Serve a pork dinner on Sunday.  On Monday, make pulled pork sandwiches made from leftover pork.  Genius.  Serve on Tortilla wraps or rolls.

Having guests?  Make sliders!

INGREDIENTS:

Leftover pork roast (approx. 3 cups)

1 cup of your favorite bbq sauce

½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Optional squirt of Sriracha sauce

¼ cup water

PREPARATION:

Cut up leftover pork into chunks anywhere from 1” to 2 ½”.  (It doesn’t matter). This is my lazy woman’s way of making pulled pork.  I can’t be bothered when I have other important things to do.  And it SO works!

Pour about ½ cup of your favorite bbq sauce in a 2 quart saucepan.  Add the pork and if there are any whole garlic cloves left from your roast, throw them in also.  Pour another ½ cup bbq sauce and ¼ cup of water.  Stir. This has to simmer on low heat for about 30 minutes, so you may need to add a little more water later.  You want the meat to be pretty much covered.

Cover the pan and simmer for 15 min.  If there are any large chunks of meat, break them up with a heavy wooden spoon. Let it simmer for another 15 min and it should be perfect!

NOTES:  If you think you see some carrot in there?  You do, but it will break down and nobody will know it’s in there.  It adds another layer of flavor.

I use this same method to make pulled chicken.  I pull it out of the fridge, chunk it, and throw it in the pan.

See the carrots? Ignore them, they'll disappear into the sauce.
