Ingredients
  • Pork Mixture:
  • 2 pounds boned pork loin, cut into 4 pieces
  • 2 cups (1 x ¼-inch) julienne-cut red bell pepper
  • 2 Serrano peppers, sliced (we added this for more heat in the dish)
  • ¼ cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice or white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper (we substituted 6 chopped, dried red hot peppers for crushed peppers)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
  • Remaining Ingredients
  • 6 cups hot cooked basmati, jasmine, or other white or brown rice
  • ½ cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dry-roasted peanuts
  • 8 lime wedges
Instructions
  1. To prepare the pork mixture, trim fat from pork. Place pork and next 6 ingredients (pork through garlic) in the slow cooker. Cover with lid, and cook on low-heat setting for 8 hours. Remove pork from slow cooker, and coarsely shred. Add peanut butter to liquid in slow cooker; stir well. Stir in pork.
  2. Serve shredded pork mixture over hot rice, and top each serving with onions and peanuts. Squeeze lime wedges over each serving.
Notes
Serving Size: 1 cup shredded pork, 1 tablespoon green onions, about ½ teaspoon peanuts, and 1 lime wedge.
