Leftover pulled pork shoulder recipe

Pork shoulder may not be the most glamorous cut of pork, but it is certainly one of the most versatile. Whether you slow-cook it for pulled pork sandwiches or chop it up for chow mein, this inexpensive cut of pork can provide plenty of delicious meals. And if you happen to have leftovers, they can be easily transformed into new dishes.

For example, leftover pulled pork can be used in enchiladas, tacos, or quesadillas. Or, if you’ve cooked a pork roast, the leftovers can be used to make soup, sandwiches, or even pizza.

Our leftovers made 2 extra dinners for a family of 4 (this recipe and pulled pork with egg fried rice), and what I love about cooking this way is that it saves money and time when making meals.

VEGETABLES USED

What vegetables to use for chow mein

I used what needed to use from the fridge as I don’t like to waste food, but you can use whatever vegetable you like. Other vegetables you may want to use are mushrooms, mini corn, bean sprouts, and water chestnuts are a great addition to any chow mein.

TOP TIPS

Preparation is key to this recipe so make sure you have your vegetables chopped, pork in the marinade, noodles cooked and ready, and the chow mein sauce mixed and ready to go before you heat the pan!

You can also use leftover turkey instead of pork in your chow mein.

Leftovers

There probably won’t be any leftovers as this dish is super tasty, and my family went back for seconds! But if you do have any left, don’t reheat it, as the leftover pork has already been heated twice.
