This was so easy to make and the flavours were outstanding.-09 Dec 2015

Nice recipe. Tangy flavour and the peanutty smell while it was cooking was great. Nice texture. Chinesey taste. Can taste the garlic, honey and ginger but none are overpowering. The peanut taste doesn't shine through quite as much as I'd like (but certainly isn't absent) so probably would add another spoonful next time. Sauce was a bit thin at the end so added a bit of cornflour paste to thicken it up. Would also recommed removing the fat before shredding at the end - it's worth leaving it in during cooking though for the taste. The recipe doesn't give the type of soy sauce to use but I used dark in the stated quantity and it was fine.-05 Dec 2015

I absolutely love traveling to Thailand and would hop a plane back at a moment's notice.

This Slow Cooker Crock Pot Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce has a bit of spice in it with the red pepper flakes but you can easily change the amount depending on your spiciness preference.

I love that this slow cooker pork recipe is a dump and go recipe! You literally dump all the ingredients in the crockpot and walk away while it cooks. No stress, no additional work for hours, just the waiting game as you smell it cooking and it smells amazing.

Writing about this recipe is making me hungry for dinner and it is early in the morning. Hmmm, what to make tonight?


  • Boneless pork loin
  • Red peppers
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Peanut butter - creamy or crunchy depending on your taste preferences.

Serve with white rice or Thai fried rice. You can also serve this with rice noodles.

How To Cook African Peanut Stew

  • Step 1. Brown the meat on all sides in batches in a frying pan and add into the slow cooker.
  • Step 2. Saute the onion and peppers and add into the slow cooker.
  • Step 3. Stir in the peanut butter sauce, mix well and cook on high for 4 hours.
  • Step 4. Check after 4 hrs, and if you need a little more time then cook for a further hour.
  • Step 5. Adjust seasoning on Crockpot African Peanut Butter Stew then serve with some rice.

I have blended the base of this West African Peanut Stew version, as well as added in a whole heaping of chopped tomatoes, which is a departure from the norm. And it tastes a little different but really, really good. The beef is so tender and falls apart after hours in the slow cooker.



Yum! We welcome all kinds of Asian food recipes at our house. Even better in the slow cooker, what a great idea! Can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing :)

Hi there! I wanted to let you know that I featured your recipe on my weekly What to Cook Wednesday post today! I hope you will stop by and grab a button!

This was really good, just made it! I definitely will double or maybe triple the sauce next time! I like saucy rice :-)great flavor though! It only took about 5-6 hours in my crock pot.


After finding your recipe blog on Pinterest, I made this recipe. And WOW, I've definitely got a new favorite. Only wish I found this sooner!! Easy, delicious and healthy, what more can anyone ask for in a dinner?

Melissa @ HOUSEography

Just stumbled on your website - so glad I found you!! I'm always struggling with "what's for dinner?" and I think you may be the answer to my prayers!!

Just tried your recipe and it was delish! Such a hearty dinner for being so healthy. New family fav!


Made this exactly as listed. So overwhelmingly salty that we could barely eat it! Bummer!

This didn't work at all for me. By barely 8 hours on low, the pork was shrivelled and the sauce was bubbled and caked to the bottom - certainly not any liquid left! I triple checked and then got my fiancée to read the recipe, and we still can't figure out where anything deviated or what went wrong. Help?! Any ideas?! It looked soooooo good. We even used less pork (

1.3lbs) but kept the amount of liquid the same to have extra sauce!

Side Dishes to have with the Ham Hocks

There are plenty of different side dishes that go great with ham hocks and peanut sauce. Below are just a couple of my suggestions.

A light green salad is excellent alongside this delicious dish. You can experiment with different salads, but I keep to a classic combination of baby spinach, feta, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and a balsamic dressing.

Some creamy mashed potatoes are super delicious with the ham hock and peanut sauce over the top. It’s a match made in heaven, and I highly recommend doing it if you have the time.

For something a little unhealthier, chips, or even sweet potato fries will work nicely as a side dish. You can also do a salad to go with the chips and ham hocks.

Some steamed rice goes nicely with this dish. However, for something a little healthier, then you can make some cauliflower rice instead.

There is no doubt that there are lots more side dishes that will go great with these ham hocks. If you have a side dish that you think goes nicely with this dish, then be sure to let us know.

Slow Cooker Pork in Peanut Sauce

There's nothing better on a long day than coming home to this slow cooker pork in peanut sauce. Super quick to prepare in the morning and then the slow cooker does all the work. Deliciously spicy and full of flavour, it's a meal that's perfect for busy families!

Slow cooker pork. Yum! If I had to choose any meat to eat roasted, pork would not be my first choice but if I'm using my slow cooker, I just love to eat pork, especially with a few of my favourite ingredients - ginger, garlic, chillies and peanut butter!

This is about the third meal I have made using peanut butter recently and I seriously think there is a danger of me becoming addicted to peanut sauces. I love the richness, the creaminess as well as the spiciness. Because the meat is cooked in the slow cooker it just falls apart and all the lovely flavour soaks into it. I want to make it again. Now.

It might not be the healthiest meal. After all, I used pork shoulder steaks which are more fatty than pork loin or chops but they have a lovely flavour and are perfect for slow cooking. There are not many things worse than dry pork and that is not something you'll be complaining about with pork shoulder. That I can promise you.

For the pork:

bone-in or boneless pork shoulder, trimmed of thick surface fat

freshly ground black pepper

finely chopped peeled fresh ginger (from a 5-inch piece)

cloves garlic, finely chopped

For the slaw:

small head green cabbage (about 2 pounds), outer leaves removed

roasted, unsalted peanuts, plus more for garnish

medium bunch scallions, green and white parts finely chopped

coarsely chopped fresh cilantro

light vegetable oil, such as canola

granulated sugar, plus more as needed

tamari or soy sauce, plus more as needed

To serve:

small tortillas, wraps, or lavash bread, whole-wheat preferred

Spicy chili-garlic sauce, such as sambal oelek


Make the pork: Season the pork shoulder all over with the salt and pepper. Place it in a 5-quart or larger slow cooker, cutting it into pieces to fit if needed. Sprinkle with the ginger and garlic, then pour the hoisin sauce over everything. Cover and cook on the LOW setting until the pork is fork tender, 8 to 10 hours. Use 2 large forks to shred the meat and mix it with the sauce.

Make the slaw: When ready to serve, core and then cut the cabbage into very fine shreds. The fineness of the shredded cabbage is really what makes this salad you want it in in threads, almost, and with the threads chopped into bite-sized lengths. Place in a large bowl. Add the peanuts, scallions, and cilantro season very lightly with salt and pepper and toss to combine.

Place the oil, vinegar, sugar, sesame oil, and tamari or soy sauce in a medium bowl and whisk until emulsified. Taste and adjust to your own preferences of sweetness and saltiness with more sugar or soy sauce as needed. Add to the cabbage mixture and toss to combine. Garnish with a few more peanuts if desired.

To serve: Stack a few tortillas on a microwave-safe plate, cover with a damp towel, and microwave in 30-second bursts until warmed through, repeating until all the tortillas are warmed through (keep covered with the towel).

To assemble, fill the tortillas with the shredded pork, top with the slaw and chile-garlic sauce, and eat like tacos or wrap up like a burrito.

Recipe Notes

Make ahead: The pork can be assembled in the slow cooker and refrigerated uncooked overnight.

Storage: Leftover hoisin pork can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated for up to 4 days or frozen for up to 3 months. Leftover slaw can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated for up to 2 days.

Hoisin sauce: Hoisin sauce is a rather sweet and lightly spicy barbecue sauce used in Chinese cooking (look for ones labeled gluten-free if you are keeping the dish gluten-free). If you don't want to use a processed product from the store, try making your own! Here is a recipe for basic hoisin sauce that calls for soy sauce, honey, hot sauce, and other common ingredients.
