    Default Freezing roast pork

    Can it be done successfully? In slices or as a single piece? I have no gravy left, in case that's an issue for keeping it moist. Don't suppose bisto would cut it!

    I tend to freeze it in slices with gravy.

    Can you make a leek or onion sauce or something moist to freeze it with??

    Onion gravy is a possibility. Thanks for the advice, Nicos.

    I have used weak Bisto in the past, and it does work to keep the meat moist, even if you make a 'better' gravy or sauce for serving - once you've reheated it

    ^That would save some time in the short term, meaning it's more likely to get done. Thanks, TS.

    That is a catering trick. Cook off the roast. Allow to cool and then slice thinly. Cover with gravy. Reheat and you will server 10 to 20% more.
