Slow Cooker Shredded Pork with Thai Peanut Sauce

We love shredded meats. Like, really love them. They are so easy to make (usually in the slow cooker) and you can ‘sauc-ify’ them easily to give them such amazing flavor. Then you can use the shredded meats in tacos, enchiladas, on “haystacks” or in soups, etc.

This didn’t start out as a “haystack” kind of meal…but ended up as one after I finished adding all the garnishes!

All these garnishes are totally optional – but the core of this is the shredded pork, peanut sauce and peppers. Start with those and then go crazy with your preferred toppings!

This is a lick your plate clean kind of meal….enjoy!
