Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce

Peanut sauce has become one of my favorites and when Amy mentioned she had a Thai Pork recipe with peanut sauce I knew I had to feature it for a recipe of the month. This stuff is really good! And it’s so easy to do in your crock pot. Serve it over hot jasmine rice.

We hope you enjoy this recipe. The home cooks from Cooking Light’s website rated it with five stars.

Ingredients:

One 2-pound boneless pork loin, trimmed of fat and cut into four pieces
2 large red bell peppers, seeded and cut into strips
1/3 cup prepared teriyaki sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

For Serving:
1/2 cup chopped green onions (white part and som of the green)
1/4 cup chopped dry-roasted peanuts
2 limes, cut into 8 to 12 wedges

Preparation:
1. Coat the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Put the pork, bell peppers, teriyaki sauce, rice vinegar, red pepper flakes and garlic into the cooker. Cover and cook on LOw until the pork is fork-tender, about 8 to 9 hours.

2. Remove the pork from the slow cooker and coarsley chop. Add the peanut butter to the liquid in cooker; stir well to dissolve the peanut butter and blend with the liquid to make the sauce. Return the pork to the sauce and toss to coat the meat evenly.
