Slow cooker peanut satay pork

A tasty way  to slow cook pork 

I’ve always adored peanut satay, unfortunately a really indulgent peanut sauce wouldn’t be the best thing for weight-loss, so I have come up with this alternative which still tastes really good, but doesn’t have the guilt-factor!

I have used PB2 powdered peanut butter (you can buy it here on Amazon) in this, as it’s a lower fat alternative to peanut butter, and actually it blends really nicely into this sauce, but you can use regular peanut butter, it will just be a bit higher in syns if you are following Slimming World.

I didn’t add chilli into this as I was hoping the children would eat it, but I would serve with a good squeeze of sriracha you can buy it here on Amazon, or it is available and cheaper in most supermarkets) on the top, or cook it with some dried chilli flakes mixed in too.

 

 

My Recipe

Serves: 4
Syns: 1 per portion (if using PB2), 3 syns per portion with regular peanut butter

Method
