I’m going to be honest, I’m equal parts excited about this slow cooker thai peanut beef and the cuuuute little Le Creuset casserole dish it’s served in. That’s right kids, I love kitchenware almost as much as I love food! Approximately 3 minutes after unwrapping it I took to instagram and twitter to share my joy, because what’s the point in pretty things if you can’t show them off!? I jest…
Anyway, back to the food! I love peanut butter because it’s so versatile (how many ingredients work equally well in chocolate cake and a thai beef dish!?). It’s a key ingredient in my slow cooker thai peanut beef and lends a nutty flavour to the salty, sweet sauce. Umm, hello all of my favourite things.
I’m trying to get more slow cooker recipes together because sometimes I get home from work and just want to spend my evening enjoying food rather than making it. Ya know? This is perfect on that front – once it’s in the slow cooker there’s zero effort required. Just serve, and enjoy!
