asian peanut butter pork in the crockpot

26 Mar


I had a pork loin waiting to be cooked — it was either this recipe or a cranberry pork in the crockpot — the husband placed this one higher up on his want list…  i thought it was ok.. it definitely needed some kick which it was lacking!  the picture ain’t to pretty either 😀



asian peanut butter pork in the crockpot


1.5-2lbs pork tenderloin
1 onion, sliced in rings
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar  (i used apple cider vinegar)
3 tablespoons water
2 garlic cloves, chopped  (i used 4 cloves)
1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons chopped peanuts (garnish; optional)  (left out)
1 lime, cut in wedges (garnish; optional)  (forgot the lime — could have used it though)

The Directions.

Use a 4-6 quart crockpot. Put onion slices into the bottom of your crockpot. Put the pork on top. Add brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, water, garlic, and peanut butter. No need to stir–the peanut butter needs to melt before you can do so. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4-6. The pork will be more tender the longer you cook it. 1 hour before serving, flip the meat over in the crockpot to allow the other side to soak up the peanutbuttery goodness. Garnish with chopped peanuts, and serve with lime wedges. The lime juice mixed with the peanut butter is delicious.
