Thai inspired flavors from your slow cooker?  Why not?  If you enjoy the distinct flavors found in Thai food and love your slow cooker, then definitely give this recipe a try!

The peanut sauce is subtle, you can certainly spice it up if you are so inclined. And the pork tenderloin, well it doesn’t get much more tender than when you slow cook it.  Sooo good!  Steam some rice, garnish with chopped peanuts & green onions and you have yourself a fabulous dinner!

  5. Once I saw this, I was anxious to try this. Had a Pork Tenderloin in the freezer. Who doesn’t have peanut butter and sugar in the pantry?! 🙂 I used crunchy peanut butter for a bit of texture. Started cooking the rice 20 min. before it was done. The house was full of the intoxicating aroma. It was easy and soooo yummy and tender. The meat absorbed all the flavors through and through. Personally, I would have liked a little more sauce because it was so good. Maybe I’ll double the sauce ingredients next time. Thank you for transporting me to Thailand for about $5. 🙂

  6. There is a Thai restaurant down the street. I keep meaning to go over there. I haven’t ever tried Thai. I’ve had friends from Thailand and friends go live there for a couple years. This would be a great recipe to try Thai food for the first time. Thanks for sharing at Saturday Dishes.

    I am unfamiliar with the term “jarred ginger.” Is this diced or ginger in oil? I have ground ginger – do you know how I could substitute that for the jarred ginger?

    Thanks in Advance! Your recipes all sound easy and delicious. Even though I am retired, I have lots to keep me busy, so anything I can cook in the crock pot is always enjoyed at our home! Thank you for sharing all these wonderful recipes!

    • Gotta love saving time however you can. The ginger is just minced ginger that is found in jars in the produce section of your grocery store. Enjoy!

    • Linda–sometimes you can also find ginger in a squeeze tube with the fresh herbs or squeezable herb pastes.

  8. My whole family loved this meal- I served it over brown rice. Yummy!

  9. I’m just starting out making freezer meals and all these recipes are really inspiring. I love peanut butter but my husband is not a fan. Can you taste the peanut butter in this recipe? Thanks

  10. What are the calories in this? Serving size suggestions?

  11. Most of your recipes say a “T of abc ingredient”. Is that a tablespoon or a teaspoon??

  12. Even though I looooooooove peanut butter and peanut sauce, my son is allergic to peanuts. So, I used cashew butter instead. Still delish!

  13. What type of salsa is used in this recipe?
