Friday Recipe: Slow Cooker Thai Pork with Rice

To be fair I think the name of this should be changed from Slow Cooker Thai Pork with Rice to The Americanized Japanese version of Thai Pork with Rice. Because as far as I recall, teriyaki sauce is Japanese. I looked up Thai spices and it seems they use a lot of curry. Not a big fan. So I thought I'd make a traditional Thai spice paste. Not difficult to make but not really on my list of things I have time to do.

I stuck with the teriyaki.
