What to do with leftover pork

From Pete Begg

Leftover roast pork whether from the belly, shoulder or any other joint is a blessing. It is so delicious and versatile, soon you’ll be roasting more pork than you need, just so you can use it up in lots of delicious different ways.

Shred up leftover pork, dress with a little salt, pepper, oil and vinegar and pop in a crusty roll for the ultimate US style pulled pork sandwich. Try it with some hot mustard, crispy lettuce and juicy tomato.

Chop up leftover pork and stir it into a home-made tomato ragu to make the best lasagne sauce. Layer the sauce up with layers of pasta and white sauce, topping with grated cheese for the ultimate leftovers lasagne!

Mince leftover pork and mix with cold mashed potato, a few chopped herbs and mix together with an egg. Shape into little cakes, flatten down with your hand to make a rissoles, and fry gently in a non-stick pan until hot through.

Chop up leftover pork, mix with a little tomato sauce, ground cumin, and chilli and spread out in a baking dish. Top with mashed potato and a sprinkle of grated cheese, then bake in a hot oven til hot through for a fantastic chilli pork shepherd’s pie.

Re: What to do with leftover pork

Is it true that pork is not suitable for dogs and cats to eat, somebody told me it was dangerous for them to eat?????????  Must admit I have never seen a tin of pork dog meat.

Re: What to do with leftover pork

I love to use leftover pork in Chinese steamed buns stuffed with pork called bao.  First, make this dough:

1 scant Tbsp dried yeast
1 cup water 110F
4 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp  vegetable oil
1/2 cup boiling water

Dissolve yeast in 110F water.  Add 1c flour, mix, cover and let rise 1 hour. 

Dissolve sugar and oil in boiling water, let cool.  Pour into yeast mixture, add remaining flour.  Knead until smooth (this is a tough dough).  Cover and let rise until doubled, about 2 hours. 

Meanwhile, make pork filling for bao.  You have free rein here.  I just chop or shred my leftover pork and add chinese char shu sauce from a jar.  You can heat pork with scallions, garlic and hoisin sauce (num!).  You can saute pork with water chestnuts, mushrooms, ginger and oyster sauce.  Char shu or hoisin are the traditional filling flavors.  Let filling cool so it's no longer hot.

Punch dough down, knead 2 more minutes, divide into 24 pieces.
Form each piece into a 3inch disc, drop a big tablespoon of filling in the middle, pinch the dough up all around it and seal it at the top. 
Place the bao on something (a leaf, small piece of tin foil or my favorite, a 2inch square of parchment paper) to keep it from sticking. 

EDIT!! Cover them with a towel and let them rise another 30 minutes.  Place the parchment and the bao into a steamer.

Steam over boiling water for 11 minutes.  These are very easy and very delicious!  They reheat very well in the microwave, 20 seconds.  My husband calls them Chinese hand pies.

They are very interesting because they have the texture of bread, not pasta.  I don't make anything else like them where you steam bread.
