Barbecued pork is simple and inexpensive and produces lots of meat. After the barbecue is over and you are tired of the leftovers, prepare your pork for the freezer. Barbecued pork is usually made with a Boston butt roast, which has a high fat content. This makes for a juicy end product. That juice also helps the pork freeze and reheat well. There are a few different ways to prepare your pork for the freezer. Choose one and freeze your leftover meat, and you will have delicious barbecued pork for a rainy day.
Things You'll Need
- Barbecuef pork
- Airtight containers
- Zip-top bags
- Food Saver
- Food Saver bags
Place your pulled pork into an airtight container. Label the meat with the date it was prepared, not the date that you are freezing it. Store in the freezer for up to six months.
Purchase zip-top bags made specifically for the freezer. Place your leftover meat into the bag. Roll the bag around the meat to remove any air. Seal, label and freeze the pork.
Cut a portion from the roll of FoodSaver bags proportionate to the amount of meat you wish to freeze. Using your FoodSaver, seal one end of the roll, creating a bag. Place the pork in the bag. Put the open end into the FoodSaver and close. Press the button to remove the air and seal the bag. Label and freeze for up to one year.
Tips & Warnings
- Reheat your pork over low heat using some sort of liquid. Barbecue sauce, broth, apple juice and apple cider vinegar all work well.
