Crock Pot Peanut Thai Pork

This is what I made last night...



Words cannot describe how delicious this was! This recipe was found over at Allrecipes.com,  I didnt do a whole lot diffrent to it besides a little more or less of this and that. I was wanting to make something different than your usual crock pot recipes. And this is one of my first recipes to post that has to do with a crock pot (or Slow Cooker, I use both terms, what do y'all say?) I just love throwing everything in the pot, walking away and going about my day!

It makes me happy. So very happy!

It gives me more time to wipe butts, scrub floors, do loads of endless laundry and make countless trips to Walmart. It just never goes away...Now that makes me very unhappy.

I want to cry...or burn all of the clothes. And do wishful thinking my little ones could go poo in the potty instead of their diapers.

Aaaanyways back to Peanut Thai Pork....

This was so easy as most crock pot recipes are so if you want something a little different than the norm than by all means make this one!

Crock Pot Peanut Thai Pork

6 boneless pork chops (not thin ones)
1-2 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips (it all depends on how much red bell pepper you like)
3/4 cup low sodium teriyaki sauce
2 tbs rice vinegar
3 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1 1/4 cup of water, divided

Garnish:
Peanuts
Green onions
Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (its an addiction of mine)

Coat your crock pot with cooking spray. Put your pork chops in the bottom of your slow cooker, add all your ingriedients except red bell pepper strips and peanut butter and use only 3/4 cup of water. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until tender (it originally calls for 8-9 hours but mine cooked faster and I didnt want it to dry out) An hour before it is ready add your red bell pepper strips and put the lid back on. When it looks like your pork is done, remove your pork (it shreds so nicely and easily!) and set aside while you add another 1/2 cup of water and your peanut butter to make somewhat of a "sauce" I guess you could say. Add your pork back to the "sauce" and let cook 10 more minutes.

Serve over brown rice or any rice of your choice and garnish with green onions and peanuts, and if your brave enough, Hot Chili Sauce! That stuff gets spicy real quick!



Happy First "Official" Day of Fall! I've seen some yummy recipes all day long that are Fall related and can't wait to make alot of them! Greys Anatomy and Private Practice tonite! Woo hoo! Too bad I'll be at work, but bless whoever invented the DVR!
