Slow-Cooker Thai-Inspired Pork

I have a tiny slow cooker, which really only makes enough dinner for two people– maybe three people if Captain Crunch isn’t one of them. I’ve only really used it to make Carolina-style pulled pork, which wasn’t really good enough to share with you. (Just go to a barbecue joint. It’s worth it.) This, then, is the first real success I’ve had with it. Hopefully more will follow.


1 lb pork loin, rinsed and patted dry, trimmed of any excess fat

1/2 cup teriyaki

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

1 tablespoon chili oil

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/3 cup peanut butter

1 bell pepper, chopped

1 head of broccoli, chopped

1/2 cup chopped green onion

Make It:

Place the pork in a greased slow cooker. Mix the teriyaki, vinegar, oil, and ginger together, then pour over the pork. Cook on low 3-4 hours. Remove pork and shred with two forks. Stir peanut butter into remaining sauce, then return pork to pot along with vegetables. Let cook an additional 30-45 minutes. Serve over rice or noodles. Makes 4 servings.
