5 Recipes For Left Over Pork

Like most, we love a Sunday roast. This week we had some gorgeous pork and there's nothing better than making enough for the next day. So if you've got some left over pork from your Sunday Roast, don't bin it. Use it to make another scrumptious meal, we have rounded up some of my favourite left over pork recipes.

When it comes to re-heating your cooked pork, make sure it's piping hot before serving. Cooked pork can be wrapped and stored in the fridge up to three days, or if you want to freeze for another day, then it's best to use within three months. As you've already cooked the pork, some of these recipes are ideal if you want to whip up a simple and easy dinner in next to no time.

1. Roast Pork Sandwich

The pork joint for our roast this week was bigger than normal and as there was so much left over, it's perfect for using for some roast pork sandwiches. We like to use left over pork, with apple sauce and way to much stuffing in between two thick slices of fresh bread. But we've have been inspired by the wonderful world of pinterest and found some amazing recipes for Roast Pork Sandwiches, so why not try these tasty Barbeque Pulled Pork Buns

4. Pork Kebabs
One of the easiest ways to use up your leftover pork is by turning your leftover cuts into kebabs. As long as they're all of a similar size, they should warm at the same rate. Add spices and fresh herbs to  flavour of your pork kebabs. We love these Smoky Paprika Pork Kebabs.

Serves 1-2


1tsp smoked sweet paprika
Juice of 1 lemon plus lemon wedges, to serve
2tbsp tomato puree
1 garlic clove, crushed
1tbsp olive oil
600g pork, cut into bite-sized cubes
Flat-leaf parsley and a few salt flakes, to garnish

5. Pork Stew

Our go to recipe for leftover pork and gravy is super easy to put together. I love using our slow cooker, but this recipe can be easily cooked on the stove or in the oven. You chop your veg, add your left over pork, add some stock and let your slow cooker do the magic. However if you want to tingle your taste buds then you must try this Spanish Pork and Chorizo Stew.

Serves 4-6


1tbsp olive oil
500g diced pork
