Many of you love making roast pork loin for a special occasion but could use a bit of inspiration about what to do with it when you have some leftover. 

Nobody wants to throw away a dish that took so much dedication and effort and it’s actually much easier to recycle pork roast into another dish than you might think.

If you’re in a jam about what to make with leftover pork roast, we’re here to tell you you’re not alone. Some of the best combinations of food often stem from mixing and matching different leftovers—and leftover pork roast is one of the best leftovers you can use to make an entirely new, but just as great of a dish. 

In some situations, you can make an excellent side dish using your mixture of leftovers, while sometimes, you can also make an entirely new meal—minus the effort.

Here are some leftover pork roast ideas and how you can make these dishes for yourself.

Sandwich

Who doesn’t love fixing up a quick sandwich to enjoy when the pre-dinner hunger kicks in? You can make pork-stuffed sandwiches with your leftover roast—they’re a treat you won’t regret. All you need is some cheese, mustard, and of course, some bread.

Depending on the kind of sandwich you’re going for, you can opt for Italian or Cuban bread too, but plain old toasted bread will do the job as well.

Add in some pickles, salami, and salt and put everything together for some mouthwatering treat.

Casserole

Everyone’s a huge fan of casserole—but did you know you can make pork casserole? When figuring out what to do with leftover pork roast, what’s a better idea than combining it with your favorite casserole and making something even better as a result?

All you need is some mushroom soup, vegetables and your favorite kind of spaghetti. Next, combine it with the leftover pork roast and you’ll be whipping up a casserole before you know it. To replace the soup, you can also put together some of your own homemade sauce to give it a cozier feel.

Casseroles are the best meal for a lazy day—and making one with pork roast leftovers has never been easier.

Wrap

Now with pita bread easily available in stores, you can make your own pita wraps using leftover pork roast as a stuffing. You won’t regret the flavorful combination of sauce, meat, and vegetables.

All you have to do is mix some lettuce, onions, tomatoes, capsicum and combine them with the same tzatziki sauce and you’re good to go. You can add some peppers if you want a hint of spice.

How to Reheat Leftover Pork Roast?

First, you should preheat your over to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and put the roast into an oven-safe dish in the meantime. Once the oven is preheated, place the dish inside for around 20 minutes, but keep checking to make sure it doesn’t burn.

Check the temperature of the roast to see if it’s around 165 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the ideal temperature. 

You can also use a microwave to reheat. Check the temperature of the roast to make sure it’s been thoroughly reheated, which might take around 5 minutes. You can read more about reheating leftovers over here.
