Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Coat a slow cooker with cooking spray. Place the bell pepper strips and pork chops into the slow cooker. Pour the teriyaki sauce, vinegar, red pepper flakes, and garlic over the pork chops.

  • Cover and cook on Low until the pork is very tender, 8 to 9 hours. Once tender, remove the pork from the slow cooker, and whisk in the peanut butter until smooth. Return the pork to the slow cooker, and cook 10 minutes more.

  • Pour into a serving dish and sprinkle with green onions and peanuts to garnish. Decorate with lime wedges to serve.

Cook's Note:

I often use a 2-pound boneless pork loin, cut into 4 pieces, instead of pork loin chops.

Easy Cleanup

Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

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. Read More

I am giving this 3 stars - the hubby would probably give it 4 stars - I won't make this again...Cooking for 8 or 9 hours - the pork would be WAY overcooked. I did mine for about 4 -5 hours and had to turn it to warm. The peanut butter didn't really give a Thai taste to the dish - but more of a "film" of peanut butter taste in my mouth. The peppers REALLY need to be added late in the cooking time otherwise they are mush. Thank you for a good idea - but I won't make this again.:( Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

Delicous! this is now my favorite pork loin recipe. To cut down on saltiness I used low sodium teriyaki. I also only cooked for 6 hours on low and it was still moist and fell apart easily. I served this with rice and the "Sweet and Spicy Swiss Chard" recipe from this site. great meal! Read More

Excellent everybody wanted seconds. Made my own teriyake kinda combo after looking at a few recipes. 1/2 C low sodium soy 1/4 c honey 1/4 cup garlic wine vinegar 2 t. red pepper flakes and 3 T pickled ginger(because I had it. Puured over a 3 lb boneless pork loin roast. Slow cooker high for 3 hrs. AT 3 hours added 4 cups mini peppers red yellow and orange cut in quarters 1 coarsely chopped onion and a 1/2 can chic broth (low sodium). 2 more hours at low. occasionally basted and turned pork. For pnut sauce 2 Cups creamy pnut butter(because I had it) and mix w/the rest of the can of chic broth. Mixed well removed roast stirred in and returned roast. 10 min-20 min max on warm. Serve on platter w/diced green onions rice pilaf and a green sald. Yummy. Plenty of leftover sauce to spoon on rice and pork. A WINNER. Read More
