Pork in Hot Peanut Sauce

READY IN: 2hrs 16mins
Top Review by Catloverr2003

This was delicious and quick. I actually only made the sauce and cut pork chops into thin strips and stir fried them, and served the meat and sauce on rice. But it was very satisfying. I served it with sesame roasted asparagus from another user on this site.
