If taking to work:

Take the pork you set aside last night in the bbq sauce in the fridge from Day 3 Dinner and place it in pan. Warm it until almost warmed through, put cheese on top and continue heating until cheese is melty. Assemble sandwich when ready to serve, adding extra bbq to sandwich.

*You can easily do the pork in the morning. Just heat a small amount of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Add pork to pan; saute for 5 minutes, turning once. Rest and then cut the pork, adding it to barbecue sauce.  Tangy Barbecue sauce can be made in the time it takes the pork to cook and rest.

I made mine on Sunday but these can be done in about 20 – 25 minutes. I like to keep these around because I find the crunchy salty chips and bright acidic salsa a deeply satisfying combination.
