"I thought this was terrible. Even with all of the peanut butter, all I could taste was the rice vinegar."

"Perfect amount of spice and sauce! This was very easy to prepare and tasted great. It also didn't make a ton of food which is great since my son doesn't eat a lot yet!"

"Was a little disappointed with the sauce at first...maybe my chops had too much "added broth" or something because the sauce was bland. But adding a couple of tablespoons of soy sauce and a little extra crushed red pepper along with the peanutbutter helped considerably. Also sprinkled cilantro as well as green onions over the top. Will add to my colection of slow cooker recipes but my favorite Thai recipe so far is"

"This recipe reminds me of my favorite Thai recipe Pad Thai. I loved it! I left out the red pepper flakes since I don't like spicy foods. It was a little dry, but had great flavor so next time I would double the rest of the ingredients (except pork) to get more sauce."
