Braising larger quantities - reuse liquid?

michaeljc70 | Mar 13, 2012 01:41 PM

I like to do things in quantity when I have time and then freeze it (if it freezes well). I bought 4 pork butts. I will need to do them in my pressure cooker separately due to space considerations. My question is do you think I can reuse the liquid? Will it have enough flavor?

I am using onions and garlic (browned first), OJ, Coke, cumin, bay leaves and chipotle peppers. Kind of a Latin American shredded pork.

I shred the pork when done.

I've done individual ones and it came out great. I don't really need the liquid for serving as I use it for nachos, tacos, sandwiches, etc. I guess I need a little to use to reheat it when defrosted.
