This dish is pretty good. I made a double batch because I had guest coming, and I had lots of pork to use, I also added an onion. I think the cooking time is a bit long. Also it wasn't too spicy, which is okay because kids were also eating it and they liked it just how it was. But the adults added more red pepper flakes at the table. I was worried it was going to be "too" spicy because of other reviews, but it ended up to be too mild! This kind of food is supposed to be spicy. I also think one more piece of advice would be not to put in the peppers until later because mine were very soggy. I would make this again, but I would add the fresh peppers later, lessen the cooking time, and add more spice.
I am Thai and all I can say is this is not Thai dish, according to the ingredients and the method. Teriyaki sauce and peanut butter are not Thai ingredients and they are never used in Thai dishes. The same as fish sauce and soy sauce, fish sauce can never be substituted by soy sauce. Sorry if this comment irritates anyone. I just want to make it clear.
Oh my word!!! This was so good words cannot express it! I followed the recipe almost exactly, the only thing I did different was I only added 3 tablespoons of peanut butter instead of 4! It was outstanding we served it with coconut rice for the best THAI experience ever! I will be making this again and again...the pork was so tender it was unreal. Thank you to whoever came up with the recipe!
This is great! I made a couple of changes...I didn't have time to cook it on low for 8-9 hours, so I cooked it on low for about an hour, and then cooked on high for 4. It turned out wonderfully. Near the end of cooking, I threw in some sliced shiitake mushrooms, took the pork out, and let the mushrooms cook down in the sauce. I think next time, I'm going to add a little sugar for a little sweetness, and I'm going to try to find some low-sodium teriyaki sauce...it was really salty. I served the pork with jasmine rice (that I cooked with 2 tablespoons of sugar to 1 cup of rice to counter the saltiness) and shelled edamame. I think this is the best thing that's ever come out of my slow cooker. I also recommend using a slow cooker liner for less mess. Definitely a keeper!
my one and a half year old devoured this and my six year old ate 2 helpings! It was a little salty, so maybe low sodium teriyaki! All in all, definately a repeater!
Fireguy, this is a winner at our house. It turned out so pretty, we enjoyed an impromptu candlelit dinner with chinaware, crystal, silver the works! I had to come up with a homemade concoction to dub teriyaki sauce (Worcestershire sauce, honey, and fresh ginger). This was just the right combination of hot, sweet, and smooth. Don't skip the lime if you can at all help it. Would give it another star, if I could. Served with a puree'd veggie soup, a tossed salad, and rice. Company special and so, so easy! Thanks for posting.
Absolutely the best pork chops I have ever eaten. Bar none. I did use quite a bit more peanut butter than called for but the gravy was just out of this world.
I thought this was swell, easy and very tasty. I used pork tenderloins and cooked in the crock pot for 8 hours as suggested. Next time, I'll not go out for the day! I could have cooked it less time and had some juice. I had to add some water in order to make the very tasty sauce. This has the potential for 5 stars!
