This slow cooker thai peanut pork is so easy and delicious!  You can make a double batch at once, then stick the other half in the freezer for later.  If you are looking for an easy slow cooker meal, here is a great one!

One of our go to recipes every month is this Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork with Red Peppers.  It is seriously SO easy and your family will LOVE it!

I usually do a double batch, then freeze half of it in a ziplock baggie for later.  Then later on in the month, I take that out and stick it in the slow-cooker for a few hours.

It really is a super easy dinner!

Here is the recipe for you!

    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.

    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?

    Do you cut up the pork before freezing or after it is cooked?
