Leftover pulled pork made with budget-friendly pork shoulder is like money in the bank. If you think that pork shoulder or Boston butt is too large for your family, think leftovers. And you don't have to eat sandwiches for days; pulled pork freezes beautifully. Defrost it in the refrigerator and enjoy it in beans, sandwiches, casseroles, and more.

If you don't want the barbecue flavor, make your pulled pork and set some aside for leftovers before you add the barbecue sauce. The shredded pork is fabulous in omelets, on salads, and in burritos. Add some saucy pulled pork to a grilled cheese sandwich, use it to fill tacos, or stir it into your baked beans. It's an excellent addition to all kinds of dishes. Add some shredded pulled pork to your fried rice, nachos, or bubble and squeak.

If you don't feel like cooking a pork shoulder, use your favorite brand of prepared pulled pork in these recipes.
