Pork with a Chile Garlic Cilantro Peanut Sauce

nadine mesch


We have a joke in our family that really good peanut sauce would make a sponge taste good :) But, use it with the pork instead.
This is one of my favorite, go to recipes. So easy to put together and cooks up very quickly.
I like to serve it with a lime cilantro rice or couscous.
This is a perfect recipe for a busy weekday meal but its special enough to serve anytime.
**When using a crockpot, always try to use a crockpot that is close in the size to the recipe you are making. It will keep your dish from drying out.
