Salsa Verde Pork Polenta

Leftovers are a great thing that can save time and make a quick dinner in the kitchen. This weekend as I was going through cleaning out the freezer I found what we commonly refer to as "sack of meat". This generally refers to something we cook in bulk, portion and freeze in 8 oz portions for another application.


Whenever you cook a pork butt and shred it, don't sauce it before cooking. Sauce it after shredding when you go to reheat it, that way you have a bunch of ready to season meat that can be used in multiple applications.

What else is pulled pork good for?

  • breakfast tacos

  • lunch tacos

  • pork ragout

  • pasta with pulled pork meat sauce

  • bbq sandwiches

  • topping a salad

  • tamale filling

  • casseroles

  • enchiladas

  • cuban sandwiches

Now let's get started on how to make this dish come tether with 5 minutes of prep !

Serves 3

  • 12 ounces Slow Cooked Pulled Pork

  • 18 oz tube of herb polenta

  • 3/8 cup Medium Tomatillo Salsa

  • 1 1/2 cups Arugula

  • 6 sprigs Fresh Parsley

  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil

  1. Preheat oven to about 375F.

  2. Using the tube of polenta, slice into about 9-10 slices, about 1/4" thick.
