Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce May 6, 2008

Filed under: Entrees — lindsayrose @ 1:55 am

We found this recipe this weekend when looking for something to do with a pork roast we had in the freezer.  I like to make pork because I get sick of the chicken/ground turkey/ground beef rotation. 


One 2-pound boneless pork loin, trimmed of fat and cut into 4 pieces

2 large red bell peppers, sliced

1/3 cup prepared teriyaki sauce

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar (I didn’t have any and was too lazy to go get some so I used red wine vinegar)

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

For Serving:

your favorite rice

dry roasted peanuts

chopped green onions


Coat slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.  Put the pork, bell peppers, teriyaki sauce, rice vinegar, red pepper flakes, and garlic in the cooker.  Cover and cook on low until the pork is fork tender, 8-9 hours.


Remove pork from slow cooker and coarsely 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.


Serve in shallow bowls over rice and sprinkle with green onions and peanuts.

We really loved this, even more than we thought we would!  Super easy, cheap ingredients, and very tasty.  I’ll definitely make it again!
