Crockpot Meal

Because of our new "waste less" goal for 2008 Tim and I have been trying to plan our menus a week ahead and buy bulk grocery items. This week I decided to try a couple of new crockpot recipes that seemed really interesting. We tried the one below last night. I left the crock to cook all day while we were at work and it smelled wonderful when we got home. I have to say this was the success of the week!
Thai Pork-Crockpot

-2lb pork loin, cut into 2-4 pieces
-2 cloves of garlic
-2 ts red pepper flakes
-1/3 (or more) cup teriayki sauce
-2 tbl rice wine vinegar
-2 red peppers sliced
-1/4 cup peanut butter

Garnish with peanuts, scallions and lime wedges.

Add pork (seasoned with salt), teriayki sauce, garlic, rice wine vinegar, red pepper flakes and peppers to the crockpot. Cook on low for 8-9 hours. Remove pork and chop. Add peanut butter to sauce in crockpot and stir to combine. Add pork back to sauce. Serve over jasmine rice and garnish.
