By now many of you know I’ve been on a Planned Leftovers kick. What’s planned leftovers? It’s where you purposely cook more of a key ingredient with the intent of using it to make completely different meals later. For instance, recently I cooked a huge pork roast. HUGE! I turned the leftover meat into Carnitas Tacos, a quick Meaty Stew, some delicious Pulled Pork Enchiladas and more! But today I’m sharing one of the most basic planned leftovers remake. As a matter of fact, this is one of our very first go-to leftovers meals because it’s so easy yet so delicious. Check out this planned leftover homestead hack.
Fastest Planned Leftover Of All!
Now hold on to your hats folks, this is gonna go fast! I take some of my leftover roast and shred it with two forks. Then I pour bottled BBQ sauce over it and ladle the flavorful meat onto hamburger buns. I add some (Taylor-Made) Ranch-Style Beans and some thick, freshly-baked home fries to round everything out. Of course I’m going to add some spicy jalapenos!
In a flash: Meal. DONE! I really prefer using hotdog buns for our BBQ sandwiches since they’re so much easier to eat that way. But RancherMan requested sesame seed buns this time so that’s what we did. If I had more time I could make some homemade Jalapeno Cheese Beer Buns. Those are delicious with BBQ as well so I like to make them often.
