Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

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. 

Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork

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!

I will say that my husband is not a peanut butter fan, so this isn’t his favorite dish, but I love it! And my pickiest eater always goes back for seconds.

I usually sneak an entire meal’s worth from the pot before we even sit down to dinner.

I usually serve this over Basmati rice, but it’s great with rice noodles too.

Be sure to save this Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
