One of our first recommendations is our fruity pork casserole (opens in new tab), which you can see being made in the video below. It's another great way to use up roast pork from your Sunday roast leftovers (opens in new tab). Just keep in mind that you won’t have to cook the meat as long as it's already been cooked. Make sure it’s piping hot before serving.

When it comes to re-heating your cooked pork, make sure it's piping hot before serving. Cooked pork can be wrapped and stored in the fridge for up to 3 days, or it can be frozen for up to 3 months. Just like leftover roast beef (opens in new tab), it's best shredded or cut into strips so it defrosts quicker.
