Today’s What I Ate post features my use for some leftovers. Like all What I Ate series editions, it isn’t recipe worthy but it made me really happy and was a great way to jazz up the leftovers.
Have you ever cooked a pork butt? It is hefty. I haven’t seen smaller ones than 3-ish pounds. That’s a heck of a lot of servings. The good news? It freezes well, reheats well, and has some alternative possibilities. It is pretty cheap too. It might be my favorite crockpot item. Woah.
I used some pulled pork to make tacos and I loved every bite. I made pulled pork (like this crock pot pulled pork post from way back when) and we ate it a few times as bbq pulled pork, or on rolls. Then I served it with crunchy taco shells, black beans, and some slaw.
The slaw was red cabbage mixed with some shredded carrots, cider vinegar, veggie oil, and a dash of sugar. It was perfect, easy, and cheap. I loved that it felt reinvented and wasn’t exactly how we had eaten it before.
Any inspired leftover revamps to share??
I’m totally going to make this Sunday night for dinner. Thanks for the inspiration!
