Well, it’s been a crazy two weeks, to say the least. Since I haven’t quiiiiite finished my wedding recap yet, I figured I’d give you all a delicious recipe to tide you over!
I made this pork before wedding madness even set in, but I’ve been thinking about it ever since. Nick proclaimed it one of the best things I’ve ever made, and I definitely agree it’s one of my favorites. But if you ask me, you can’t really go wrong with peanut butter or Thai.
Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce
(adapted from Prep Ahead & Dine In)
- 2 lbs pork tenderloin
- 2 red bell peppers, cut into strips
- 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
- 2 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- Green onions, sliced, for serving
- Roasted peanut, chopped, for serving
- Fresh cilantro, chopped, for serving
- Sriracha sauce, for serving
Place pork and peppers in the bottom of a slow cooker. In a bowl, combine teriyaki sauce, rice vinegar, red pepper flakes, and garlic. Pour over pork.
Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours.
Carefully remove pork from slow cooker and shred.
Mix peanut butter with sauce in slow cooker until peanut butter dissolves.
Toss the pork back in slow cooker and coat with the sauce.
Serve over rice, topped with green onions, peanut, cilantro and sriracha!
I always try to make such pretty dishes for the blog and it kills me when Nick goes crazy on them, mixing them all up. This is what his dinner ended up looking like:
Ahh well. I guess it all still tastes the same! And if it tastes anything like this pork, you’ve got a winner!
