Grilled Pork — Chops & All: Leftover Logic
And nobody’s ever had any trouble eating leftover cold pork. But did you know that you can do a lot more with that leftover cooked meat? You can, in fact, make a quick and easy stew on a busy weeknight that seems a little more exotic, a little bit complicated (but isn’t), and makes a big splash on the dinner table — more than, let’s say, just sticking a platter of cold pork chops on the table.
The trick, of course, is that lots of great stew recipes — like the one here for Caribbean-style pork stew — call for pre-cooked pork, which isn’t so easy if you don’t have the meat already on hand. (Let’s face it, cooking the meat is the most laborious part of all these recipes below.) But — P.S. — even in these recipes that don’t call for pre-cooked pork, you can still just add your leftover meat anyway and adjust the cooking time. True, that’s not a great idea for slow, long-braised winter stews. But it’s not winter yet, and the stew recipes we have here are designed to make an easy summer meal.
How hard is it to throw pork on the grill? Not very, and now you’ll know to toss even more onto the flames in the first place. Just tell the family that the neighbors might drop by. And leave it at that.
