Sharing is caring!

Leftover Pulled Pork Ideas are all the recipe inspiration you need to make your leftovers shine! Have you ever cooked a whole pork roast and felt like there was enough meat to feed an army? (It’s happened to all of us!!) These delicious recipes will help solve those “what’s for dinner?” questions and give you creative ways to finish off that juicy pulled pork that’s too good to toss.

Method, Pork Cut, & More

It’s pure bliss when roasting large cuts of meat and it starts to fall off the bone. That melt-in-your-mouth juiciness is hard to beat, and leftover pulled pork is one of my favorite ways to fill up our fridge.

Low and slow is the ultimate method to produce optimal results. Utilizing low temperatures on the oven, or better yet, breaking out the slow-cooker are your best options for cooking larger pieces of pork. Slow-cookers were made for times like these!

When it comes to slow cooking, the larger cuts of meat perform the best. Pork shoulders and pork butts tend to be the easiest to find in grocery stores without breaking the bank. From one pork shoulder we tend to easily get 8-10 large servings.

For a large family gathering, it’s perfect! But for just the two of us, it lasts us for the entire week.

Most recipes follow a pretty standard template – you don’t need to add much to get the flavor to shine. Pork shoulders naturally have a very fatty side that adds flavor and helps the entire cut of meat cook properly.

Use your favorite seasoning salt, a little acid (vinegar, soda, orange juice, etc.) and some liquid (broth or water) and that’s all you need! If you’re feeling fancy you can chop up an onion to throw in as well.

Finish it off under the broiler to soak up some of the excess liquid and crisp up some of. the ends. The simplicity of the recipe yet incredible flavor makes this dish one of our family favorites.
