Peanut butter melds with classic Asian flavors to lend this one-dish meal a Thai flair. Lime makes a perfect accent.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boned pork loin, cut into 4 pieces
  • 2 cups (1 x 1/4-inch) julienne-cut red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice or white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 6 cups hot cooked basmati rice
  • 1/2 cup diagonally cut green onions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dry-roasted peanuts
  • 8 lime wedges

Preparation

Remove pork from slow cooker, and coarsely chop. Add peanut butter to liquid in slow cooker; stir well. Stir in pork.
  2. Combine stew and rice in a large bowl. Top each serving with onions and peanuts; serve with lime wedges.
