A very quick and easy recipe. I actually stumbled across this by using leftovers. My family of 7 likes it so much that we have it a few times a month. Even the youngest child can join in the preparation by getting the toppings ready. A wonderful use of any type of leftover meat.

It worked well and was fairly easy to make. The only change I would make would be to season the pork more than I had because it turns out a bit bland. Read More
