Asian Peanut Butter Pork Crockpot

I love my crockpot so always happy to try new crock recipes!

This had an interesting flavor. Ron really enjoyed it but I think it was missing something, I'm just not sure what. I'll be playing with the recipe a bit next time I make it.

Asian Peanut Butter Pork Crockpot

found via A Year of Crockpotting

1.5-2lbs pork tenderloin
1 onion, sliced in rings
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
3 tablespoons water
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons chopped peanuts (garnish; optional)
1 lime, cut in wedges (garnish; optional)

Use a 4-6 quart crockpot. Put onion slices into the bottom of your crockpot. Put the pork on top. Add brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, water, garlic, and peanut butter. No need to stir--the peanut butter needs to melt before you can do so. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4-6. The pork will be more tender the longer you cook it. 1 hour before serving, flip the meat over in the crockpot to allow the other side to soak up the peanutbuttery goodness. Garnish with chopped peanuts, and serve with lime wedges. The lime juice mixed with the peanut butter is delicious.

This sounds good to me. I think it would be nice to use boneless butterflied pork chops for this. Let me know what you do to it when you play with the recipe. :)
