Slow Cooker Nutty Asian Pork makes your kitchen smell so good, they’ll be running to the table! Serve this pork over rice to soak up the delicious sauce!
A Tender Crock Pot Pork Recipe
Slow cooker dinners are some of our most favorite dinners to make! Perfect for when you’re short on time and need dinner ready and waiting for you – but also some things just taste better when they’ve been slow cooked all day.
This slow cooker pork roast recipe is definitely easy, but also it is so good when you bite into a tender, juicy piece of pork that’s not dried out.
And the sauce here? Well that’s a whole different conversation. This nutty Asian flavored sauce is total perfection. Don’t forget to serve this pork recipe with rice so that you don’t leave any behind.
For this sauce recipe we’ve got some oyster sauce, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, brown sugar and peanut butter.
Very similar to a Thai peanut sauce, with most of the same flavors. So if you like satay chicken, you’re definitely going to love this Nutty Asian Pork recipe.
What Is Bok Choy?
If you’ve never had bok choy before, although I think you have because it’s in a lot of Chinese take out meals, it’s has a crunchy mild cabbage flavor. Although it’s way better than cabbage in my opinion, so if you can find it you should try some.
We’re using baby bok choy in this recipe today, but if you can’t find it at your store you can swap out broccoli or snow peas.
Just steam them first and then stir them into the sauce when the pork is done. Broccoli, in my opinion, gets too mushy in any slow cooker recipe so just add it in at the end.
Also if any of you are following low carb, this recipe is for you. Swap out the rice for cauliflower rice to soak up all the sauce or just eat it as is. Our boys eat this Slow Cooker Nutty Asian Pork with bowls and bowls of rice or noodles, all while still attempting to master their chop stick skills.
If you do decide to swap out the bok choy for broccoli or snow peas, just add them during the last hour of cooking time or steam them separately on the side.
