No one at my home likes dark meat or leftovers for that matter. I learned to get around that by taking leftover dark meat, or any leftover vegetables from a roast, and throwing them in the food processor. This is a great way to "fool" the family, and add flavor at the same time. I often add grated carrot, chicken or beef stock, and this to brown rice, for example. It really is good, and so cheap.

When I have left over dark turkey meat, or a roast, I put it in the food processor, maybe add some of the veggies it was cooked with, or not, fresh celery, a little onion. This makes a great sandwich spread. Mix this with a little mayo, or Miracle Whip. Enjoy!
This is a guide about recipes using leftover pork roast. Leftover pork roast can be reserved in a variety of ways.
When making Sunday roast, buy one large enough to make roast beef sandwiches with the leftovers. On another night make roast beef soup with leftover vegetables. Have it all the same week or freeze and save it for another time.
We use leftover roast (beef, pork, turkey etc) to make a hash. Simply cut up the meat into bite sized pieces. If you have leftover roasted potato cut that up too, or you can cut up new ones diced into bite sized pieces , or use canned diced ones.
Any left over veggies, corn, peas or whatever you had with dinner or whatever you have in your cupboard or freezer will do. If you are using uncooked potato cook that first in a frying pan with some oil. Once they are soft enough you can add some onion, the meat, veggies salt and pepper to taste, or whatever seasonings you like, and the gravy.
We often have left over gravy. If the gravy has jelled (we use a boxed gravy called Bisto) just add some water to the frying pan. Once it's all cooked and heated through just serve. Use pieces of bread to soak up the gravy. Our family loves this left over dish.
An idea for a leftover pot roast is one that my grandmother, mother, and now I use: Cut up or shred some of the beef and save it for the next day along with some potatoes and carrots (as little or as much as you like). Grandma calls it "hash".

What can I do with leftover pork?
By robinski41671 from Herkimer, NY
Dice it for pork stroganoff, make pork sandwiches for sack lunches, make a potato, onion and pork hash in your skillet.
Pork tacos, burritos, enchiladas. Pork chow mein, Pork Yakisoba.
Quantities will depend on the amount of pork left over and the number of people you want to feed. This is an old family favorite so I don't have a precise recipe.
Chop up the pork into 1" cubes (or smaller if liked) and fry gently with about tablespoon of oil, grated apple (Bramley is good) and finely chopped mushrooms (use fairly bland ones or they'll mask the flavor of the pork). Stir occasionally until cooked through (at least ten minutes to ensure the meat is heated thoroughly). Stir in a "dollop" of coarse-grain mustard ensuring meat is coated with what will be a mustardy sauce (don't overdo it unless you REALLY like mustard). Remove pan from heat and stir in a pot of soured cream. Serve over plain long-grain rice with a green salad.
Pork fried rice is a favorite of mine. I do this with left over chicken also. Add a little oil to the pan, have some cooked rice handy. Just add the pork and rice to the skillet and "stir fry". Add 1 or 2 scrambled eggs and keep moving the mixture around the pan until the egg is scrambled. Last, I add a handful of frozen peas and carrots. For my own plate, I add sesame oil which I love. But, it's according to individual taste because not everyone may like it. You can also add soy sauce. I could eat this until it's coming out of my ears.
