Pork Roast Two Ways

I used this as the base for two other dinners. After cooking, I removed any fat from the roast, removed the bones and divided the meat in half.

During this time of home quarantining, the availability of meat is not consistent. I’m trying to cook things in which I can use in multiple ways.

Roasting large pieces of meat or poultry which can be used for multiple dinners is part of my focus now.

Stay tuned to see how I used the portions of pork for dinners!
