Are you looking for a tried and true pork recipe? This Crock Pot Thai Pork recipe was sent to us from a dear reader and we just love it.
A while back we started really hanging out with readers over on Instagram and before long I got a lovely note from a reader– Steph Ramsey. Steph wanted to share one of her family’s favorite slow cooker recipes with us. She said she found this recipe in her paper years ago and now her family enjoys it regularly. We LOVE getting reader recipes to try out, so before long I was cRockin’ up this Asian inspired dish and boy, oh boy did we love it!.
I really enjoyed this recipe for Crock Pot Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce because it is quite a bit different from other dishes that we have on the site. It is one of the reason I love using my slow cookers. The possibilities of what you can cook up are just about endless!
- I cooked this dish up in my 6 qt Slow Cooker but it would easily fit into most 4-6qt slow cookers.
- I served it over my VERY FAVORITE RICE that I cooked up in my rice cooker but you can serve this delicious dish over minute rice if you’d like.
- We used freeze dried garlic instead of fresh.

- Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray.
- Put your pork, bell peppers, teriyaki sauce, rice vinegar, red bell pepper flakes and garlic in crock pot.
- Cover and cook on low up to 8 hrs, until pork is fork tender.
- Take your pork out of your crock pot and coarsely chop.
