One Dish: Two Ways

I don't know about you, but I am not a fan of leftovers.  It's practically impossible to cook for two people without waste, so there are always leftovers in our house.  One of my favorite ways to keep things new and exciting while using the same meal, is to serve it a different way.

My latest attempt was with Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Pork. I used this recipe, only I doubled it: 

1 (4 pound) pork shoulder
2 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle root beer
2 (18 ounce) bottles your favorite barbecue sauce {I used Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet ’n Spicy}
And I used my handy-dandy crock-pot liners.  Such a life saver!
Mix Root Beer and Barbecue Sauce Well
Add Pork
Cook on Low 8 Hours


Day One
Served on a toasted Ciabatta Bun with a side of Homemade Coleslaw
{Makes 6 Sandwiches}

Day Two
Served in Won-Ton Wraps topped with a Pickle
{Makes 24 Pork Won-Tons}

Place won-tons in muffin tins sprayed with non-stick spray

Add one spoonful of pork mixture

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes until won-tons are golden brown

This variety was a big hit in my house.  I am going to try this again with another main dish.  Do you have any main dishes that you remake for leftovers?  I'd love to hear about it!

I hope you're having a great weekend!
