I think I saw this too late :( But if you still have some in your freezer, I would recommend the Cooking for Two 2009 cookbook, which has a trio of recipes that you can make with leftover pulled pork:

Mexican Pulled Pork Tacos
Rustic Pork and White Bean Stew with Garlic Croutons
Ramen with Pork, Shiitakes, and Spinach

We loved all three recipes.

You might be able to get it at your local library. Maybe for next time :)

You could adapt this cornbread tamale pie recipe, using sauced pulled pork for the filling - I haven't made it yet, but looks good and easy: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/article/cornbread-tamale-pie

So many possibilities, assuming it's not already sauced. Hash, tacos/burritos, enchiladas, fried rice, sandwiches of many kinds (banh mi, tortas, grilled cheese), incorporated into baked beans or mac & cheese, added to braised greens like collards, kale or chard (either by itself or over pasta or polenta). Minced, it can substitute cooked ground pork or beef in any number of preparations.

Pulled pork freezes very well, too.

Tacos, pizza, grilled cheese, top baked potatoes or fries
