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.

"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 Vegetables

This 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"
