This was a very tasty and EASY recipe. Didn't change a thing as a true review should be in my opinion and we LOVED it over rice. Even better 2 days later when I mixed the pork mixture with the rice and warmed it up in a skillet.
3-3.5 stars. This was very easy, different and has potential to be even better. I think some crushed peanuts and sliced green onions for garnish would go a long way with this dish. I added my peppers at the end so they would retain some crunch.
Excellent recipe, quick to put together. I added the pork chops frozen and upped the cook time by 3 hours. We ate it over rice in complete silence, we didn't want to stop! Next time I'll add fresh onion, and add pea pods at the end or asparagus. Make plenty of sauce!!!
Extremely easy and quick to make, few ingredients, and very yummy! I added more red pepper flakes to mine to make it spicier and more veggies. Orange peppers and broccoli are a great addition. I think something crunchy in texture was definitely missing, perhaps crushed peanuts added for garnish. Next time I'm going to try this with a little cocounut milk and cilantro too. Should be wonderful!
This was great! The only thing I did different was cube the pork into one inch pieces before I put in slow cooker, no need to shred! Served with rice noodles and ginger carrots (from this website). Next time, I may add a little bit more red pepper spice, but it was still great!
Delicious! Very simple to make, really. I made this almost exactly the same as the recipe--I used 1 enormous yellow bell pepper (when chopped it was like 2 normal-sized peppers) and also added broccoli to the pot. I also added a smidge more crushed red pepper since we like spicy food and I found out later my husband snuck in another spoonful of peanut butter while it was cooking. The flavors were great--sweet and spicy and a little smokey somehow, all at once. Adding broccoli is a must in my opinion as it sucks up the sauce and just explodes with flavor in your mouth. I put in the veggies in the beginning as the recipe states and thought they held up pretty well--no crunch of course, but they didn't cook into mush, they were just really soft which was nice. Served over brown rice and may add carrots or some more peppers next time for more veggies, as we definitely had plenty of sauce to go around. Definitely a keeper for us!
I thought this recipe was pretty good and had a nice flavor. I used unsalted all natural peanut butter and had a hard time blending the sauce so I used my immersion blender on the sauce to combine everything before adding the pork chops. I also used one green pepper and one red pepper, adding them 1.5 hours before serving (when I shredded the pork). This allowed the peppers to cook and absorb some flavor but not be mushy.
YUM!! Delicious!! I followed the recipe very closely - I used chunky peanut butter, and used half the crushed red pepper flakes. I liked the chunky peanut butter in this very much, and I probably could have added another shake of the crushed red pepper but my SS doesn't like anything too spicy so I have to be careful of that. This was a great quick meal to set up, perfect for when the football game is on in the afternoon :)
