Canned Pork

I recently went to a local food pantry and they gave us 2 large cans of pork. I have gotton canned chicken before and made a chicken cassarole with it but thinking of making a pork cassarole grosses me out. I don't want it to go to waste. We don't have a lot of money and would like some ideas on how to use it.

I have a couple of cans of the pork left,too. I usually drain all the jusices out and replace with a nice B.B.Q sauce.. Or you can make a gravy and have it over potatoes. that is the way they used to serve it in the schools.But, the BBQ sauce you can serve it over hamburger buns.

You can make:

Pork Stew (using cubes pieces of pork) and add whatever else you want

Stir fry cubed pork with spices and serve in tortillas

Cube canned pork; add sauerkraut and heat

Chipotle Pork
28 oz canned pork
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
16 oz. tomatoes, pureed
1 orange, zest and juice
1 - 2 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
1 tsp oregano
1 tbsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup chopped cilantro, a handful, reserved

Saute onion, chilies, and garlic in olive oil till soft. Add everything, except reserved cilantro to pot. Cook on medium heat for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serves 4 to 6

Sweet & Sour Pork - add sweet and sour sauce to meat, heat and serve over cooked rice

Pork & Spaghetti
Add drained pork to your favorite spaghetti sauce. Add mushrooms and
black olives, if you like. Heat and pour over cooked spaghetti. Serve
with garlic bread and salad.

Hope this gives a few ideas you can use!

You can chill the can and remove the large chunks of fat. Then boil the meat and add wide noodles for Pork and Noodles.

Make homemade noodles the way you like.

I used to buy canned hams a lot. My favourite way to use them is to make scalloped potatoes, add a good amount of chees, chopped canned ham and sliced carrots. Cook as you normally do for scalloped potatoes. it is really good served with garlic bread or a salad.
We all get heavier as we get older,
because there's a lot more information in our heads.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Happy face

We used to put it in a pan & make gravy & serve it over toast. You can also drain the juice off & add to sourkraut. My mom made a casserole by putting the drained meat in a greased cake pan & topped it with stuffing & baked it for about a half hr.
