We’ve all been there. Sometimes, you overestimate how hungry your guests are going to be. Others, you make a little bit of extra food in the hopes of tiding you over for the week. Either way, sometimes, leftovers happen. Today, we’re going to answer an age-old question: What should you do with pork leftovers?
How do I store it?
Any kind of leftover pork can either be put in the refrigerator or frozen. When storing, be sure to keep it in an airtight container or Ziploc bag and take all meat off the bone.
How long can I keep it?
Before you can do anything else, you’ll need to know how long it’s safe to eat your leftovers after cooking. According to Health Canada’s website, cooked pork keeps anywhere from 3-4 days in the refrigerator, to 2-3 months in the freezer. So, if you’re not planning on eating those leftovers right away, be sure to freeze them!
