Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 5 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/2 tsp mild, 1 tsp medium, 1 1/2 tsp spicy and 2 tsp extra-spicy! Core, then cut pepper into 1-inch pieces. Peel, then cut sweet potato into 1/2-inch pieces. Zest, then juice half the lime (whole lime for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lime into wedges.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, reserve 1/4 tsp Thai Seasoning (dbl for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Pat pork dry with paper towels. Season with salt, pepper and remaining Thai Seasoning. When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then pork. Sear, turning occasionally, until golden-brown, 6-8 min. Transfer pork to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast in the top of the oven until cooked through, 14-16 min.** Carefully discard fat from the pan.
Meanwhile, add peppers, sweet potatoes and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to another parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Roast in the middle of the oven, stirring halfway through, until veggies are tender, 16-18 min.
Meanwhile, add lime juice, lime zest and 1 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then whisk to combine. (TIP: Add 1/4 tsp sugar [dbl for 4 ppl] for a slightly sweeter vinaigrette, if desired.)
Heat the same pan (from step 2) over medium. When hot, add peanut butter, soy sauce, reserved Thai Seasoning, 1/3 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) and 1 tsp sriracha. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Cook, stirring constantly, until sauce is smooth and comes to a gentle simmer. (TIP: Add 1/4 tsp sugar [dbl for 4 ppl], if desired.)
Thinly slice pork. Add roasted veggies and spinach to the bowl with vinaigrette, then toss to combine. Divide salad between plates, then top with pork. Drizzle peanut sauce over pork. Squeeze a lime wedge over top, if desired.
