    Pork Roasts

     Pork roasts are still a good deal for some. Pork can also be a stretchy food that farthers the use and lowers food cost. 

    What are your favorite meals using pork roast?

    Re: Pork Roasts

     We use a smoker to cook boston butts low and slow.  Then we eat as pulled pork on sandwiches, in fajita style dishes with peppers, onions, and tomatoes, mixed with sauce and used as a topping for baked potatoes, etc.  I can't think of all the ways I have used them.

     I sometimes cook pork roasts (butts, picnics, etc) in the oven or slow cooker.  I season with slat and pepper.  The first meal, we eat it plain with side dishes like mac and cheese, baked potatoes, green beans, salad, etc.  Then I will make it fajita style, shred and add sauce for sandwiches or potato topping, etc.

    Re: Pork Roasts

     The key is to cook it slow.  I generally p[ck up small ones so I haven't had left-overs.

    When I have leftover pork roast, I sometimes shred it and sautee it with lots of Mexican spices to serve as tostadas.

    I like to eat pork roast as a roast with mashed potatoes, gravy and saur kr**t. We also cook it long and slow and shred for BBQ pork sandwiches, fajitas or pork tacos. If there is a small amount left over, I also add to baked beans.

    I've had good success with pork roasts and like to have a few in the freezer. Leftovers are even better!

    I like having it as a roast with roast spuds, veggies and gravy.  Then I'll have it with  mashed spuds and cabbage.  As a meat in a sandwich with Branston Pickle- a UK thing.  Then if still any left I will have it steamed in Chicken bouillon and served with french fries and baked beans.  Lots of way really.  Never had it in pulled pork or BBQ sauce though.  Sally

    I recently slow cooked a 5-6lber picnic roast with a little olive oil on the bottom of the crock, fresh chopped apples and onions, herbs/garlic salt rubbed on the roast and some chicken broth. I was able to use the leftover juice after with some gravy mix to use with potatoes. It was very nice.

    Re: Pork Roasts

     When I'm feeding a large group, I will take a family sized pork roast and cook it in my electric turkey roaster with about 3-4 pounds of beans until it all turns to mush.  I add Mexican spices.  It is served nacho style on top of chips with all the salad, cheese, salsa etc...
