Thai Pork Chops
Popular Oriental flavors of lime, peanut, soy and ginger season this no-fuss pork chop dish. Assemble ingredients in the slow-cooker and let chops cook undisturbed all day. Accompany chops with hot cooked rice, to soak up the spicy sauce, Chinese Cabbage Salad and warm flour tortillas.
4 boneless pork chops, 1-inch thick
3/4 cup chunky-style salsa
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon grated fresh gingerroot
4 tablespoons coarsely chopped roasted peanuts
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
- Place chops in 4-quart slow cooker.
- In medium bowl stir together salsa, peanut butter, lime juice, soy sauce and gingerroot; pour over chops. Cover and cook on low heat setting for 8 to 9 hours, until pork is tender.
- Remove chops to serving platter.
- Remove sauce from slow cooker; skim off any fat on the surface. Pour sauce over chops, garnish with peanuts and cilantro.
