Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Turkey Meatballs

Earlier this week, I was dreaming of my favorite Thai Peanut Sauce, and thinking of new recipes that I could incorporate the sauce into. During this dreaming/brainstorming process, I was also cooking up Slow Cooker Swedish Meatballs for the Cox Smart Home event I was catering and Snapchatting live from this week.

That’s when I got the idea for Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Turkey Meatballs!

Thai Peanut Pineapple Veggie Rice Bowl Recipe

I have a confession to make, when it comes to cooking rice, I overshoot it every time by about 4-6 cups. I’m not sure what my deal is, I guess I just really have a phobia of running out of cooked rice, haha!

But today that leftover cooked rice, along with some leftover Thai Peanut Sauce, came in very handy to make this epic new recipe!

One of my go-to quick & easy weeknight meals is some sort of Asian rice or noodle dish, such as this Quinoa Fried Rice or Gluten Free Kung Pow Beef & Noodle Bowl . They can be tossed together in just a few minutes and are always delicious!

I originally made this sauce to go with my PB&J Chicken Skewers… yeah, that’s a thing and they’re so good!

The recipe is old school LLB, we’re talking over 2 years ago, the beginning days of recipe creation, which is perfect for today since it’s “Throwback Thursday”!

Thai Chicken Salad on Endive Spears

I was so excited when Clare from the California Farm Water Coalition e-mailed me last week asking if I would like some delicious California Walnuts for “National Walnut Day” today!

Of course I said yes and began contemplating what I was going to make with these delicious nuts!

I decided I wanted to make a cold chicken salad that could be served as an appetizer. Now being the Little Leopard Book, I didn’t want to make just any ‘ol chicken salad, so I decided to make it Thai with my favorite Peanut Sauce that I put on just about everything!

Thai Peanut Pulled Pork Roti Bread Pizzas

Thai Roti Bread Peanut Pork Pizzas

It’s Friday, the perfect time to set sail into the weekend with something totally new, totally unique and totally scrumptious!

Grilled Roti Bread Pulled Pork Pizzas

After making homemade roti bread this week to dip into my yummy Curry Potato and Mushroom Soup, I knew I had to find an innovative and awesome use for the leftover bread!

Thai Pizza Recipe

My mind immediately went to pizza because well… I LOVE pizza!

Since my inspiration for the Roti Bread came from my favorite Thai restaurant I thought, Thai Pizza!  But this couldn’t just be a traditional Thai Chicken Pizza like everyone else does, oh no, I had to put my LLB twist on it!

I decided to slow cook a pork shoulder with my delicious Thai Peanut Sauce, shred the pork then place it on top of the pizza with some of my favorite “Thai Food Accouterments” like bean sprouts, carrots and cilantro.

The result was a trip to melt-in-your-mouth delicious town!

Thai Peanut Pulled Pork Roti Bread Pizza Ingredients

Ingredients

Thai Peanut Pulled Pork

  • 3-4 oz pork shoulder
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup Thai red curry paste
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 lime, juiced

Roti Bread Pizza

  • 6 slices roti bread
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/2 cup carrots (julienned)
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 2 tbsp green onions (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp peanuts (crushed)
  • 1 lime (cut into wedges)

Place the pork shoulder in a crock pot. Next, combine all of the other ingredients for the pulled pork in a blender.  Blend until smooth and creamy. Reserve one cup of the sauce then pour the rest over the pork.

Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.

Remove the pork from the crock pot and shred.  I used the shredding blade on my awesome food processor to get a very fine shred, but shredding the good ol’ fashioned way with a knife and fork works just as well (just takes a little more time!)

Shredded Thai Peanut Pork

Place the shredded pork back into the crock pot with the sauce and mix well.

Now it’s time to prepare the pizzas.  Begin by evenly spreading the cup of reserved peanut sauce on each slice of roti bread, then topping each pizza with the pulled pork.

Grill over medium heat for 4-5 minutes, then top with the bean sprouts, carrots, cilantro, green onions and peanuts.

Serve each pizza with a wedge of lime for juicing on top of the pizza.  This adds a nice juicy, flavorful tang!

Throw the pork into the crockpot in the morning, then easily toss these pizzas together for dinner that evening!

Thai Peanut Vegetable Pasta

After having my first “Thai experience” a couple of months ago I’ve been eating and experimenting with Thai food on a consistent basis.

Thai Peanut Pasta is one of my favorite dishes yet and it worked out perfectly because I had extra peanut sauce from my PB&J Chicken Skewers.

I loved this recipe for 3 reasons:

  1. I hate to waste anything, especially food, so I was very happy to find another use for the extra sauce!
  2. This sauce was so amazing I will admit that I’ve actually been eating it by the spoonfuls since I made it!
  3. This recipe was super easy and only took 15 minutes to put together!
