Leftover Pork and Vegetables

When I buy pork roast that's too much for two people, I have this second-day dish in mind. It's a family favorite that doesn't taste like leftovers. —Shirley Tower, Southwick, Massachusetts

    I was searching for a way to use some leftover pork, and found this recipe on the website. We just finished enjoying this for dinner. It was delicious! I did not tweak the recipe in any way. I will say it's quite a bit more than 2 normal servings, but it's all gone!! I will definitely be making it again.

    Made this last night and it is delicious. I only had fresh carrots but I cut them into one inch cubes. Also added a leek, mainly because it had to be used. The gravy and stock are the key. Excellent for lunch leftovers

    Just made this for dinner and it was excellent. The only thing I did different was that I used leftover pork chops cut into cubes and I didnt have pork gravy so I used a packet of dry turkey gravy and added one extra cup of water. I did double the recipe and it still turned out good. Next time I will make sure I have pork gravy but this is a keeper, easy, fast and delicious.

    Easy and delicious and the best recipe I've found for leftover pork that's still healthy. I had leftover brown rice, which I added when the dish was almost done with a little extra chicken broth to heat and eat. Will definitely make this again.

    Re: Leftover Pork and VegetablesThis was excellent. I was looking for a way to fix leftover pork. It didn't taste warmed over. I used the rest of the chicken broth can to fix the rice.

    This is a great way to use leftover pork. I didn't have frozen carrots so I added canned carrots at the end.

    This sounds good, I think we'll try it, sans the mushrooms. We're not much of mushrooms people except for pizza.thanks, Cookie
