  • 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.
