12 Ways to Use Pulled Pork for Lunch

Turn leftover pulled pork into great lunches, either during the busy work week or the more relaxed weekend.

Pulled pork is a standard Southern staple, savored in the heat of the summer or on a cold winter day. Growing up in this region, a child soon learns to distinguish a good BBQ joint from a mediocre one: Is there a woodpile close by? Is smoke billowing out of the chimney? Can you smell it before you even see the restaurant? From collegiate tailgates, outdoor receptions, or simple backyard gatherings, pit masters are proud to fire up their BBQ smokers, and share pulled pork sandwiches and classic side dishes with crowds of family and friends. Pulled pork isn’t just for a big feast, however; leftover pork is the basis for great noon-time meals, either during the busy work week or the more relaxed weekend. A little pulled pork, whether from a slow cooker roast or from a BBQ restaurant goes a long way in making nachos, noodle bowls, or sandwiches for lunch. Add a quick and easy dessert, and you have a satisfying meal in no time.
