SLOW COOKER THAI PEANUT PORK — Slow cooked pork and vegetables in a sweet and spicy Thai peanut sauce. Serve over rice or rice noodles for a complete meal.
I’m fairly certain, being made in a slow-cooker, that this is not authentic Thai cuisine. But this Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork is so good, I just can’t bring myself to care.
I’m sure you could prepare it more traditionally, without the slow-cooker, but I love the ease and convenience of throwing it in the Crock Pot and not having to fuss over it too much.
Thanks for this recipe. I made it tonight, and my hubby and I really liked it. Plus, there are a ton of leftovers, which is great. ~ Carolyn
My family doesn’t think it’s too spicy, but you can always start with one teaspoon of chili sauce (found in the Asian section of most grocery stores) if you’re worried.
You can also use red pepper flakes as a substitution. You can also switch up the vegetables to suit your tastes. A squeeze of lime is a must though! And so are the chopped peanuts!
You can probably tell from the photos that the chopped peanuts are my favorite topping for this dish!
I will say that my husband is not a peanut butter fan, so this isn’t his favorite dish, but my picky kids always goes back for seconds.
And being a huge fan of all Thai cuisine, I usually sneak an entire meal’s worth from the pot before we even sit down to dinner. It’s really that good!
The pork and veggies simmer in their own sauce in the slow cooker, but you could always serve more Thai Peanut Sauce on the side. Sriracha is another great condiment for those who like things spicy.
Fresh chopped cilantro is another great topping. This is really the kind of dish where you can raid your refrigerator or pantry and add all kinds of delicious things.
I like to serve this dish over Basmati rice, but it’s great with rice noodles too. No matter how you serve it, this Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork is destined to become a favorite family dinner!
