Ingredients

1 package (about 1-1/2 pounds) turkey tenderloins, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
1 red bell pepper, cut into short, thin strips
1-1/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3 green onions, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/3 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter (not natural-style)
12 ounces hot cooked vermicelli pasta
3/4 cup peanuts or cashews, chopped
3/4 cup cilantro, chopped

Preparation

  1. Place turkey, bell pepper, 1 cup broth, soy sauce, garlic, pepper flakes and salt in slow cooker. Cover; cook on LOW 3 to 4 hours.
  2. Blend cornstarch and remaining 1/4 cup broth until smooth. Stir green onions, peanut butter and cornstarch mixture into slow cooker. Cover; cook on HIGH 30 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Stir well.
  3. Serve over vermicelli. Sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro.

Variation

Substitute ramen noodles for vermicelli. Discard the flavor packet from ramen soup mix and drop the noodles into boiling water. Cook the noodles 2 to 3 minutes or until just tender. Drain and serve hot.
