3. Cover and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours.
4. Cook desired noodles on the stove top, drain and then stir into the slow cooker.
5. Serve in individual bowls and top with lime and cilantro and peanuts.
Totally delicious and an easy easy version of your Thai restaurant favorite. I loved the interesting and flavor-bursting sauce of lime juice, fish sauce, rice vinegar and sugar. You definitely could do this in a pan on the stove instead of the slow cooker. I just like to have dinner ready early and I like that the flavors have time to marinate a bit. You could also substitute beef or chicken for the turkey if you wanted (I just had a package of ground turkey that needed to be used up). I’ll be making this in the future for sure. I think next time I’ll experiment with some beef chuck steak. 4 stars.
