From: http://www.busybuthealthy.com/2011/02/28/slow_cooker_thai_style_pork_stew/

You may have learned from Episode 1 (Thai Noodle Salad), that we LOVE Thai food. This recipe is so good and so easy! Only 5 ingredients into the slow cooker, then some crunchy additions after its done. You'll love it!

Recipe Upgraded: Feb 28/11. (adjusted sauce, toppings, photo and more accurate nutritional info) Adapted from Cooking Light.

Makes 9 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup stew, 2 Tbsp green onions, 2 Tbsp cilantro, 1/4 cup bean sprouts, 2 teaspoons peanuts, and 1 lime wedge)

3.1 pound sirloin beef tip roast *see Note
1 cup lower sugar teriyaki sauce *see Note
1 cup rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

NOTES:

* A lean cut of beef includes: flank steak, eye of round roast, moose/bison roast. Could also sub for chicken breast, chicken thigh or lean pork (nutritionals will change).

* I used San J gluten free teriyaki sauce

Directions:
Trim fat from beef (if needed). Place the meat, teriyaki sauce, rice vinegar, garlic & crushed pepper into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove beef from slow cooker and shred. It should shred very easily. Add peanut butter to leftover liquid in slow cooker; stir well with whisk. Add beef back into the slow cooker and stir.

Top each serving with green onions, chopped peanuts, bean sprouts & cilantro. For no additional calories, serve over tofu shirataki or yam "miracle" noodles (as shown).
