Default Pulled Pork frozen w/food saver Question

got a food saver from a relative lately. Love this thing.
I have some approx 1.5 pound blocks of pulled pork. Whats the BEST way to reheat with these things?
Boil to me seems like the way to keep it freshest. Micro will tough up the meat I think.

What say you?

Just boil the bag for about 15 minutes. When you cut it open it will be perfect.

Boil bag open and serve, maybe add some fresh rub and sauce and chow down.

Make sure bag does not melt to bottom of pan or you get mush.

Not bad. I think I will give it a spritz of a finishing sauce before I freeze next time and see how that turns out.
Consistency was a "tiny bit" toward mushy, but still quite tasty.

You might want to think about double sealing the bags. Nothing worse than a bag of pulled pork filled with water. I've never had a problem doing it this way.

Have done it about 15 times. Never had a water problem. Not a bad idea though.

I've mixed sauce with pulled pork and burnt ends, frozen then vac'd for camping trips and they were terrific! Roughing it in style, boil,cut bags,cheap buns-no mess to clean up! But I normally don't sauce and vac for home use.

Very good advice! Extra insurance.

I use the Foodsaver and have never boiled a bag. I usually plan ahead and toss the frozen bag in the fridge a day before I plan to eat it. By then, I can put the pork or brisket into a roll or a wrap in the morning with a little sauce, zap it it for a minute when I'm ready to eat it, and it's perfect. When I'm using frozen veggies for a sauce or a stew, I usually just toss'em in the pot with no problems.
