If you braise a single pork shoulder this Sunday and follow it with just an hour of prep work, you’ll have a week of great dinners ahead of you.
A Single Pork Shoulder, Used Three Ways
Make the pork shoulder on Sunday evening.
After dinner, prepare the ramen broth. Cover and refrigerate until Monday. Store the remaining leftovers in three airtight containers: one for the pork, one for the sauce and one for the vegetables.

Measure out the remaining sauce and stir in half the amount of quinoa. For instance, if you have three cups of sauce yet, prepare one and a half cups of quinoa. Simmer over medium-low heat on the stovetop until most of the liquid is absorbed. Stir in the leftover vegetables and cook until warmed through.

Same as Monday. If you are out of roasted vegetables, use frozen sugar snap peas, shiitake mushrooms, frozen corn or any other vegetables you have on hand.
