Thai Pork Chops in the Crock Pot
Served over rice this thai inspired dish appeals to everyone I have served it it to! Using the crock pot makes meal prep so much easier.
My family needs new dinner ideas and I’ve heard from a few people lately that this Easy Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce in the Crock Pot is easy, delicious and healthy. This sounds like the perfect trifecta we look for in a new meal idea. So I put their recommendations to the test and we AGREE. This recipe is a keeper!
Pork loin has been on sale for $.99 to $1.99 per pound lately. That’s a value that’s hard to beat! So I’ve been looking for unique ways to flavor the pork. This peanut sauce was so EASY and added great flavor to the pork and rice. We bought half of a pork loin that weighed about 5 pounds. We sliced four chops off of the loin and put them in the freezer for a future meal. The remainder of the roast was cut into very thick chops and used in this recipe.
We found the original recipe from America’s pork chop farmers posted here on Yummly. We made a few minor adjustments, like using 4 pounds of pork loin instead of 2 pounds! The remainder of the ingredients were doubled as well. We also used white rice because we didn’t allow enough time to prepare the brown rice. Whole grain brown rice is a bit healthier than white rice.
Pork Chops in the Slow Cooker Recipe Idea
We also plan to use our slow cooker more in the coming year because it makes meals so easy. If you don’t have a good one, we recommend this slow cooker.
Our chops were in the slow cooker on low for three hours when I removed them from the sauce to add peanut butter. I checked the internal temperature on the chops and found a reading of 145 degree Fahrenheit. That’s how I knew my pork chops were done!
We love the flavor combinations in this meal. Our son is a bit of a picky eater and even ate this meal, so that’s another win for the family!
