I was searching for something a bit different to make in my crockpot besides the stereotypical pot roast or pulled pork. I ran across this recipe in a cookbook that I have owned for awhile but haven’t had time to use yet. Overall, it turned out pretty well and I would make it again.
Thai Pork With Peanut Sauce (From Not Your Mothers Slowcooker Cookbook)
Note: I doubled this recipe except for the peanut butter because I had a 4lb roast instead of the 2lb it originally called for.
1 4lb boneless pork loin (you can really use any pork you want)
1 bag of frozen pepper strips
1 bag zucchini
2/3 cup teriyaki sauce
4 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tea red pepper flakes (I added a bit more to make it hotter)
4 cloves garlic
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup green onion
1. Coat the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Put the pork, bell peppers, zucchini, teriyaki sauce, rice vinegar, red pepper flakes, and garlic into the cooker. Cover and put on LOW for 8-9 hours.
2. Remove the pork from the slow cooker when finished and coarsely chop. Add the peanut butter and blend until dissolved. Return the pork to the sauce and toss to coat. Add in green onion.
3. Serve over rice.
