I don’t know what I would do without my crockpot. My Mom gave me mine when I graduated high school. It still works perfectly and is one of my best friend’s in the kitchen.
This recipe was actually derived from one of my favorite foodies The Lean Green Bean (her blog is awesome – go check her out). She used pork shoulder in her recipe, but I opted for a leaner cut. Pork loin has less fat but definitely does not lack flavor as long as you cook it correctly.
I was worried about using pork loin in my crock pot because I thought it would be too dry, but it wasn’t. The end result is super juicy and mouthwatering Asian-inspired pork.
Great for any busy weeknights. Set it before you go to work and dinner is ready when you get home. It doesn’t get any better than that!
CrockPot Asian Pork
A perfect one pot meal that does most of the work for you! Perfect for weeknights when you just don't have a lot of time, but don't want to compromise a flavorful meal. Serve with sweet potatoes or whole grain rice and vegetables or in lettuce cups for a carb controlled meal.
Add strips of onion, garlic and red bell pepper to the bottom of the crockpot.
Add pork loin on top.
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, grated ginger, thai chili sauce, juice from an orange and peanut butter. Stir to combine.
Pour over pork, cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
When ready, shred pork loin with two forks and serve as desired. Add crushed red pepper flakes or your favorite hot sauce for added flavor.
I do not recommend trimming off the fat of the pork loin. Pork loins tend to be a leaner cut of meat, but you want a little fat in this dish to keep the meat moist and for better flavor.
This meal typically takes 6 hours, but it depends on your slow cooker.
