Teriyaki Pork with Peanut Sauce (Slow Cooker)
Thanks to the slow cooker, teriyaki pork with peanut sauce only takes 10 minutes to prep for a dish that's tender, flavorful, and always a crowd-pleaser!
Servings: 12 servings
- 5 pounds boneless pork loin roast (trimmed of fat and cut into 8 pieces)
- 2/3 cup teriyaki sauce
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes (optional)
- 5 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup scallions (chopped)
- 1/4 cup cashews or peanuts (chopped)
- 2 limes (cut into 12 wedges)
Coat the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Add the pork (in a single layer if possible), turning the pieces cut-side up.
In a small bowl, mix the teriyaki sauce, rice vinegar, red pepper flakes (if using), and garlic.
Pour the sauce over the pork.
Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 9 hours.
Transfer the pork to a bowl and shred with two forks.
Add the peanut butter to the liquid in the slow cooker and stir until it dissolves.
Return the pork to the slow cooker and toss until the meat is well-coated in the sauce.
Garnish each serving with scallions, nuts, and a squeeze of lime.
This recipe is for 12 servings of teriyaki pork.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
