If you’re wondering what to do with leftover pulled pork, I have some of the best ideas for you! Pulled pork is an excellent family friendly meal time meat, that you cook in bulk to save time and money.

I’m always preaching the use of leftovers in order to spend less time in the kitchen, which in turn makes it more likely that you will stick to your meal plan (and budget).

When we prepare pulled pork, we will usually make enough for 2 nights and eat the same dinner each night. This means two nights of pulled pork tacos or sandwiches. I know it might get boring for some, but this has worked for us for a long time in order to stick to our meal plan and a grocery budget of $100/week for our family of five.

However, after rounding up these leftover pulled pork recipes, I have so many new ideas and see how simple it would be to do tacos one night and nachos the next (to add a little more variety to our plan!)

See for yourself, as you scroll through all 57 of these dinner recipes that use leftover pulled pork!
