    Default Need ideas for leftover pork roast

    I usually make enchiladas with leftover roast, but I'm not in the mood. Last time I did BBQ dh didn't eat it. Any other ideas?

    My favourite is curry for any and all leftover cooked meat.

    Cut the meat into strips, like you were going to stir fry. NOW

    Take an onion or two, large--chopped and some olive oil or butter and gently fry up the onion in a biggish fry pan or the bottom of a soup pot with a nice heavy base, you don't want it to stick and burn.

    Take about 2 to 3 TBSP of curry powder depending on the amount of meat and how hot you like your curry and fry gently with the onion. Frying curry powder releases the flavour to its full extent.

    Next slip the meat in, and sort of stir fry it till heated.

    Now add some sliced celery and an apple all diced (curry is best if a bit of fruit is in) and a handful of raisins

    and pour a little lemon juice-- a couple TBSP, some water or broth if you have it but not much, only enough to make a bit of thick sauce so about 2 to 3 TBSP, and a handful of coconut if you got it, but the coconut is optional.

    simmer -- it should be thick, so you need to stir this.

    Sprinkle some peanuts on top if you have, don't worry if you don't.

    Serve on top of cooked rice to soak up the curry gravy.

    I usually do encheladas too. You can always freeze it and it will be there when you are in the mood for them again.

    I actually just put it back in the crockpot to reheat it. It was lots better the second time! There's still a lot left. I think I'll just freeze it. Good idea Laura. Lots of good ideas! Thanks friends.

    We like it cooked in (chunked up) with red beans. Add hot cornbread, onions, fried taters.....YUM!
