This is from Cooking Light magazine, the December 2002 issue. So far, this is the #1 recipe I've tried in my new crockpot! It isn't really exotic, but it is a little different from most of the crockpot recipes I've seen, and it's just very tasty. Hope you like it!

We loved this recipe! I added a bit more garlic and pepper -- but no lemongrass or basil. For its taste and ease of preparation, this recipe gets 5 stars. It's one that I'd make again.

This was wonderful! I doubled the sauce ingredients so I would have enough to put over my rice. It was so easy, with ingredients I always have on hand. I served it with jasmine rice along with chopped peanuts, chopped green onions and chopped cilantro. It's a simple recipe that I wouldn't hesitate serving to guests.

Easy and tasty, although we'd have liked a bit more heat (we added two dried tien tsin peppers instead of the red pepper flakes, but I think there weren't enough seeds, so it may have been my fault).
