Pork Tortilla Roll-Ups Recipe
These yummy pork tortilla roll-ups are a great way to use your leftovers.
Have you ever made a meal where you had lots of leftovers? I bet you’ve had lots of meals like that so I love it when we can create a new meal out of leftovers to keep it interesting. I turned a pork roast into lunch for my kids. I’m going to share with you how to make Pork Tortilla Roll-Ups.
I’m learning how to use a pressure cooker and this is sad to admit, but I was under the assumption that pressure cookers were just for canning. My new electric pressure cooker does so much that I may never use my stove again.
Boston Butt Roasts tend to be large. The inside pot to my pressure cooker is large but not as large as I needed for this roast. So, I took it and sliced it into three pieces. All you need for that is a sharp knife.
Placing two pieces into my cooker, I set it for 55 minutes and let it go. When I slow cook roast, I put onion and garlic in the cooker, then place the roast on top of it. That’s exactly what I did with this roast in the pressure cooker. I also seasoned it up with salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.
That night we had the most tender roast with rice, gravy made out of the roast juice, and crowder peas. There was still quite a bit of roast left over and it sat in the refrigerator for about two days.
The kids are out of school for the summer and they have been eating me out of house and home. Every day their lunch is something unhealthy like pizza or sandwiches, but it’s summer and I’m not too strict on their diet. But, since there was a nice chunk of roast left over, I decided that I was going to make something for them.
Wanting nothing heavy and the oldest doesn’t care for bar-b-que sauce, and the youngest will eat anything in a tortilla, I put the roast back in the pressure cooker for about 15 minutes, just to warm it up and to make it shreddable.
Once the meat was warmed through and falling completely apart, I drained all the juice from the pot and set my pressure cooker on the brown setting. I placed the meat into the pan and was able to pull it apart simply by using a wooden spoon. This took all of about 2 minutes.
I warmed flour tortillas up, put mayonnaise on the inside, layered pork, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. They were finished with their roll-ups before I was able to sit down to eat mine! The leftover port roast made the best lunch. Add taco seasoning and you could have pork tacos. The possibilities are endless. Try this pork roast recipe then take the leftovers and make another dinner or lunch for yourself and kids!Print
