Thai Pork

*excuse me while I go off on a tangent for a minute* (its what I do best)
My friend called me a few days ago. She had gotten a flat tire on the freeway. Luckily the timing was right and we could go help her fix it asap. In a span of about 15 minutes we had the car ready to go. We got back in our truck, closed the door and a second later a huge truck flew right past us, barely missing us all the way safely off on the shoulder of the road. We then watched as this vehicle drove about 20 more seconds before crashing off the freeway into the guard rails at full speed. It was a dreadful sight (the driver was okay, his truck was not).
This driver was drunk.
If we hadn't have been parked behind my friend or come to help her with her flat, he would have easily hit right into her and her blond hair, blue eyed babies napping in the back seat.
We were all a bit frazzled of course.
The next night she had us over for dinner as a thank you. And the main course was fabulous.
She called it, the You saved our lives Pork.
I called it, fantastic!

Thai Pork

2 lb boneless pork loin, trimmed
2 large red bell peppers, cut into strips
1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp red pepper flakes (more or less for heat)
2 cloves of garlic minced

Add all ingredients to slow cooker and cook on low for 5-7 hours.
At the end, shred the pork and add 1/4 cup peanut butter.
Serve over Jasmine rice. Top with sliced green onions, chopped peanuts, and lime wedges.

I have made this twice now...once with pork and once with chicken. Both were delicious! Thanks!
