How to Reheat Pulled Pork

When you are ready to reheat the pulled pork, you want to use a skillet to reheat larger amounts. If you are reheating a smaller amount, it can be reheated in the microwave. Reheat the amount you need. This will keep the rest from getting dried out.

Can Pulled Pork Quesadillas Be Made Ahead

while the pulled pork is made ahead, you do not want to make the quesadillas ahead. The tortilla will get soggy and it does not taste good when it is reheated. To save time, you can get everything together in individual bowls and then put the quesadillas together like an assembly line when you are ready to make them.
