It’s International Sandwich day on November 3rd and what better way to celebrate than to create a peanut butter sandwich #unlikeanyother… Or shall I say samwich?
The savoury pulled pork in this sandwich is cooked in a peanut sauce similar to what we would dip our satay and fresh spring rolls in. In Southeast Asia, the versatile peanut sauce can be enjoyed in various ways, and here I’ve decided to pair it up with some pulled pork.
All the ingredients are dumped into a rice cooker, without the need to marinate, and left to cook on its own. This however results in a tender and succulent pork. Sounds too good to be true? Try it for yourself!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this sandwich, and I hope you do too if you do give it a go! On a side note, I know I’ve been a little absent on this blog. Things have been so hectic with wedding preparation as I was busy getting married 2 weeks ago! Having a wedding in the midst of a pandemic is surely a new experience to navigate through. While we had to postpone our dream destination wedding in Scotland due to the restrictions, everything still managed to fall into place with our intimate ceremony here in Singapore by the Marina Bay. After all, I married the man of my dreams! ❤
Till next time!

Congrats on your marriage! And thanks for such a terrific recipe. Pulled pork and peanut butter? Sounds like a winner!
Congratulations! I love a good peanut sauce. The sandwich looks terrific, Sammi.
Congratulations, Sammie! That photo is amazing. I’m sad to hear about the trip to Scotland, but hopefully you can schedule it for post-pandemic times. We did a delayed honeymoon as well because we moved half way across the country a few weeks after we got married. The delayed honeymoon was nice! Either way, glad to see you back on the blog. Oh, and this recipe sounds fantastic! We make a peanut sauce that we toss with cabbage and grilled chicken, but I’m loving this pulled pork idea. Well done!
Oh- congratulations on your wedding! Your husband is very lucky to have such a good cook as a wife! I love pulled pork and adding the peanut flavoring sounds delicious! I use a slow cooker a lot but I never thought you could also use a rice cooker to make ‘stews’ as well.
Oh Sammie…congratulations on your wedding…such a pretty and special photo…thanks for sharing with us.
