I want to share one of my favorite recipes, Leftover Pork and Potato Cream dish. This recipe combines leftover pork chop and cooked potatoes that will produce tasty and mouth-watering result. One thing I like about this one is the fact that I can make use of the leftover items: the potatoes and the pork. And it can yield in 4 generous and tasty servings that will make your tummy go happy for quite a long time!
- 12 oz of cooked pork. It would be best if it has been finely diced
- 2 cups of cooked potatoes. Dicing them would be perfect
- ½ cup of milk
- 1 can cream mushroom soup
- 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
- A teaspoon of paprika. You can have more for the garnish
- 3 tablespoons of margarine or butter
- ¼ cup of chopped celery
- ½ cup of chopped onion
- ¾ cup of cooked peas. You can also have peas and carrots
- A dash of Tabasco sauce. You can use ground red pepper if you don’t have Tabasco
- Black pepper and kosher salt for taste
- Fresh chopped parsley for the garnish
- Melt the butter in a big skillet with medium low heat. Then sauté the celery and onion within the butter until the onion becomes translucent, golden in color, and soft
- Add the milk, soup, Tabasco sauce, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir everything until it is mixed well
- Add the diced potatoes, pork, paprika, and peas. Cook it with low heat for around 10 minutes – or until it is hot and bubbly. Taste it. Add fresh (ground) black pepper and Kosher salt if needed.
- Your leftover pork chop recipes is done! You can serve it with fresh chopped parsley and paprika sprinkle if you want to.
- Any leftover starch potatoes (low to moderate) will be best for this hash. If you want the best result, it’s better to use Yukon Gold, new potatoes, or red-skinned types. They definitely taste great for this recipe
- In case the leftover meat isn’t be used right away, you should freeze it. Later, when you want to use the meat for casseroles or hash or other (skillet) dishes, you can defrost it. It’s advisable that you slice and dice it before the use.
- Feel free to substitute the mushroom cream soup with celery cream soup. Or if you want to, you can make your own homemade white sauce that is seasoned with pepper and salt. If you use this homemade sauce, use around 1 ½ cups of it
- If you want richer taste, you can add ½ cup of green or red bell pepper. Make sure to chop them first
- You can substitute the diced pork chop with diced roast beef, pork roast, corned beef, or ham for the leftover pork chop recipes.
