AIBU to not know if I can freeze cooked pork

Family Sunday roast cancelled, but huge blade of pork roasted anyway.

What do I do with all the meet?

Can I freeze it, then use it another time?

Sorry, I know I sound dim, but I'm not used to dealing with left overs.

If it wasn't previously frozen its fine.

I'd freeze it in some nice gravy, then voila quick roast dinner mid week !

Even if it was previously frozen it's fine once cooked.

Yup should be fine. I've done it and we are all still alive!

Better if frozen in some sort of sauce / gravy or OK on it's own?

I'd cut it up then freeze so easier to defrost.

It's all shredded up already so I'm half way there.

Yes, you can freeze any meats once cooked, even if they were previously frozen raw.

Thanks Mumsnet. Have put one portion in the fridge to use tomorrow, and another in the freezer. MN to the rescue again.

And yes, it is better to add some broth or gravy in with it when you freeze it, if helps keep it from freezer burn.
