Thai-Style Peanut Pork

 Thai-Style Peanut Pork
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
