I love pulled pork. Dinosaur BBQ out in Syracuse, NY was one my favorite places to eat. They know how to do BBQ! Since we do not own a smoker, the crock pot is the next best way to make pulled pork. This recipe puts a different spin on the traditional BBQ pulled pork. Give it a try and let me know your thoughts.
Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce
One 2 lb boneless pork loin, cut into 4 pieces
2 large red bell peppers, seeded and cut into strips
1/3 cup prepared teriyaki sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped dry-roasted peanuts
- Coat the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Put the pork, bell peppers, teriyaki sauce, rice vinegar, red pepper flakes, and garlic in the cooker. Cover and cook on LOW until the pork is fork-tender, 8-9 hrs
- Remove the pork from the cooker and coarsely chop. Add the peanut butter to the liquid in cooker; stir well to dissolve the peanut butter and blend with the liquid to make the sauce. Return the pork to the sauce and toss to coat the meat evenly.
- Serve in shallow bowls over hot jasmine rice, and sprinkle each serving with some of the green onions and peanuts. Pass the lime wedges.
