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!

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!

While visiting my brother in Washington D.C. about a month ago, he put in a request for a couple of new recipes.

One of those requests was for a new recipe using Trader Joe’s Cashew Meal. He and his girlfriend Liz love using the cashew meal in another recipe they found online and wanted a new recipe that incorporated the ingredient.

Drunken Noodles

Drunken Noodles



Confession: I am completely addicted to Rama Thai’s Drunken Noodles. Like, it’s kind of a problem. I have serious cravings for these noodles on a regular basis! I’ve had Drunken Noodles elsewhere and enjoyed the dish, but never like at Rama! Now it’s my turn to attempt the re-creation of their spicy noodle dish!

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.

Thai Peanut Pulled 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.

Roti Bread Thai Peanut Sauce Pulled Pork Pizzas

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!

♣ Vegetarian Option: Substitute jackfruit for the pork, this Indian fruit is known as “vegetable meat”.  See here for a sample recipe using jackfruit as pulled pork.
