Crock Pot Teriyaki Pork
Good morning! I have a new super easy slow cooker recipe for you today! I was slightly skeptical because of how simple it was and the small ingredient list but I sure was glad to be proven wrong…. this time 😉 This pork is SO VERY FLAVORFUL!
We actually ate it 2 nights in a row, because we had leftovers. Yay for cooking once and eating twice! The first night we had the Teriyaki pork with our favorite fried rice and Fresh Ginger & Garlic Roasted Broccoli and the second night I made Teriyaki Pork Sliders. (I will share that recipe with you all tomorrow!)
- 3-4 lb Boneless Pork Loin
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 cup apple juice
- 2 Tbsp cornstarch
- 2 Tbsp cold water
- green onions & sesame seeds for serving (optional)
Cut roast in half and rub down with brown sugar. Place in crock pot. I would DEFINITELY recommend using a crock pot liner for this recipe. Add minced garlic, soy sauce and apple juice. Cook on low for 6 hours or until tender. Remove roast and set aside. Make a slurry with the cornstarch and cold water. Add to the crock pot juices and continue cooking until juices are thickened, about 15 minutes. Serve sauce over the pork with green onions and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
