Second Time Around -- Hot Pork Sandwich With Gravy
photo by VickyJ
- Ready In:
- 1⁄2 - 1 cup pork gravy (I made this from leftover broth, but you can use store-bought gravy)
- 2 slices bread (any variety you like, I used basic wheat)
- 6 ounces cooked pork roast (leftover and sliced)
- 1⁄2 cup mashed potatoes
- Reheat leftover pork in microwave, stove-top or oven.
- Heat gravy slowly in small saucepan over low/med heat or in microwave at 50% power 3-4 minutes.
- Reheat leftover pork in microwave for 30 sec on high (micro. ovens vary).
- Place one slice of bread on dinner plate, then sliced pork.
- Ladle a little gravy over pork, then top with second slice of bread.
- Spoon mashed potatoes on the side.
- Ladle rest of gravy over both, or just on top of the sandwich.
- Note: I used the leftover pork roast stock, milk, flour, butter, salt and pepper to make the gravy. There is no recipe for the gravy.

I made this recipe on 9/24/12 for mine and my SO's dinner, and most importantly as a tribute to a wonderful lady in " Vicky J's Cook-A-Thon ". Some leftover pulled pork from my freezer stash, jarred pork gravy, and home made mashed potatoes all came together to make one of the best " Comfort Food " meals that I've had in a long time. Everytime I make this or a variation of this recipe described in the description, I'll " Keep Smiling :) "
I can't tell you the last time I I enjoyed a hot pork sandwich, and what a treat! This was a quick, tasty and satisfying meal...what did we do before microwaves? Like Vicky, I always freeze my leftover roasts in broth so this recipe was perfect after a long day of yard work.<br/>Made in memory of Vicky. RIP my friend.

Hello! I am a resident of WA state, and I must say I love it here.... especially where coffee flows so freely! I live with my SO, Mark, and he has lived here since 2001 (originally from San Diego, CA). We live a quiet life and enjoy just about anything outdoors. I love to travel... sometimes just to pick a spot on the map and make a weekend out of it. Since I have been here, some of my favorite places to visit are Oregon and Washington (Cle Elum, Leavenworth, Spokane, Bonney Lake, Maple Valley, Issaquah, etc). My favorite place in Seattle is Pike Place Market, even though I don't get there often. And, Mt. Rainier is a scene I often photograph. <img src="http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u158/VickyJ_photo/rainier.jpg"> Originally, I am from Jamestown, NY home of <img src="http://imagecache2.allposters.com/images/pic/CLASS/130-120~Lucille-Ball-Posters.jpg"><img src="http://maioush.files.wordpress.com/2007/11/lucille-ball-8553.jpg"> She is loved by all that live there and the surrounding areas! Another famous person that is from the area is Natalie Merchant and former lead singer of the 10,000 Maniacs (rock band). <img src="http://photo.sing365.com/music/picture.nsf/Natalie-Merchant-photo/48256C71003578A248256926002F4F75/$file/natalie.jpg"> I think that is about it for famous people. There was a question posted in one of the forums about who I would love to have for dinner, right now. I answered God, Jesus, my mom, Grandma Lundin, Grandpa Lundin and Aunt Sig. They are my role models in life. Each has molded me into the person I am now. My fondest memories are spending Thanksgiving and Christmas-time at my Grandma's house, and the whole family around. SO MUCH good food! I lived in that small city my whole life and graduated from high school just outside of town. I have a strong restaurant background.. everything from Pizza Hut to a local italian restaurant called Vullo's. It seems, though, I have a passion for machining technology, even though I didn't go to school for that. I grew up with a local manufacturer of machine/tooling systems soldering/wiring circuit bds and assembling whole systems. That wasn't enough for me so, I went to college and obtained my AAS in Electrical Technology. The same company hired me back to work in their service dept as a technician. I had planned to go further to become an electromechanical engineer for the company, but I was laid off. I have been out of it so long, I would probably have to start over from scratch.. .that is the problem with electronics/technology.
