Thai-Style Peanut Pork Recipe

Thai-Style Peanut Pork Recipe

My husband and I both work long hours. This slow cooker recipe is large enough that the two of us can eat as much yummy pork as we like and still have leftovers! It's important to use low sodium or no-salt products in the recipe or the dish will be too salty.—Dawn Schmidt, Durham, North Carolina
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 8 hours YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet red peppers, julienned
  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 pounds)

  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 cups hot cooked rice
  • 1/2 cup chopped unsalted peanuts
  • 4 green onions, sliced

Directions

  • 1. Place peppers in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Cut roast in half; place on top of peppers. Combine the teriyaki sauce, vinegar and garlic; pour over roast. Sprinkle with pepper flakes. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until meat is tender.
