Reviews for Thai-Style Pork
"I thought this was terrible. Even with all of the peanut butter, all I could taste was the rice vinegar."
"Just made these tonight, the chops tasted ok, but the sauce was disgusting and ended up throwing it out. Was the first recipe from TOH did not like."
"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!"
"Easy and wonderful. I passed it on to my sister and her family loves it too. Gonna try it with chicken next"
"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 http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/Thai-Beef-Stir-Fry"
"This is my daughter's most requested recipe! It is very easy and tasty, and I love the fact that I can cook a delicious meal without too much work!"
"love this! I switched up the rice for thai style noodles instead. So yummy! It's a must if you like thai food and way cheaper than going out to dinner!"
"I exchanged the teryaki sauce for hoisen. I loved it and my husband thought it was very tasty."
"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."
"if you are looking for less fat, try going without the roasted peanuts and brown rice :)"
"I doubled all ingredients except for the chops"
