"Thai flavors of peanuts and pork come together easily in this simple slow cooker recipe."


2 red bell pepper, seeded and
sliced into strips
4 (8 ounce) boneless pork loin
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped roasted
2 limes, cut into wedges


1.  Coat a slow cooker with cooking spray. Place the bell pepper strips and pork chops into the slow  
     cooker. Pour the teriyaki sauce, vinegar, red pepper flakes, and garlic over the pork chops.

2. Cover and cook on Low until the pork is very tender, 8 to 9 hours. Once tender, remove the pork from
    the slow cooker, and whisk in the peanut butter until smooth. Return the pork to the slow cooker, and
   cook 10 minutes more.

3. Pour into a serving dish and sprinkle with green onions and peanuts to garnish. Decorate with lime wedges to serve


  1. wasn't crazy about this recipe. Although the pork did fall apart after 8 hours, I found the meat dry and I thought the sauce lacked a certain tang or zip. It was good, but I don't think I'll make it again.

  2. sorry about that one. I wonder if it would be good with chicken instead? as far as a little more zip, maybe more crushed red pepper flakes. maybe those who decide to make it will see this and add a little more.
    thanks for the review!
