    just wanted to tell you how delicious this was – and EASY. I’ve finally broken out of my “beef stew” crockpot rut! THANK YOU!

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! A have a few other great, easy, crock pot recipes I’m hoping to feature….stay tuned. :)

    I made this today and it was delicious! Not too spicy, either. Thanks for the recipe. I’m definitely making this again and freezing a batch!

    something else that you could do to thicken the sauce is to mix 1-2Tbs of quick-cooking tapioca in with the liquids, then you wouldn’t have to remove the lid at the end.

    This recipe looks great but my son has a peanut/ tree-nut allergy. I am wondering if anyone has tried this with sun/ soybutter instead of peanut butter? Thanks.

      My kids were a little freaked out by the idea of using peanut butter as a seasoning for the pork, so I went with some Thai chili garlic sauce that I bought from a local supermarket (you can make your own from Aldi items if you wanted). I used that, a splash of fish sauce, and the rest of the recipe while excluding the peanut butter. The kids loved it. The only other change I would make is to either slice the peppers thicker or to cut them into 1 inch squares so that they hold up better. Thinly sliced peppers turn into really skinny strands that weirded-out my younger kids.

    was just wondering how it would be if I left out peppers or is there something else I can substitute…really don’t like their flavor!

  6. Dawn says

    When freezing this, is it better to go ahead and add the peppers before freezing or would it be better to add them fresh when I actually cook it?

    8 ounces seems like a lot of meat per serving. How about adding more veggies like celery, water chestnuts, cabbage?

    So I’m not sure if it’s just because I did not buy the printable list but I have been running into ingredients that were not on the list of things to buy. Not sure if they were things that were just assumed that everyone had but it’s been really frustrating already and I’ve only just begun the process. Next time I guess I will just have to go through each individual recipe anyway :/

    We had this tonight. I substituted four boneless skinless chicken breasts because we aren’t big on pork. It was so yummy! About 15 minutes before it was done I put about a tablespoon of Tony Ho’s Yum Yum sauce in the slow cooker and gave it a stir. I also poured a little of the yum yum sauce on it once it was on my plate. All the flavors blended together very well, even before I added the yum yum. This would be great with steak or shrimp, too. I’m not sure about shrimp in the slow cooker though since shrimp cooks so fast. We served ours on white rice. Maybe next time I will add more stir fry type veggies. This was a hit!
