Recipe Variations

  • Change the Protein –Teriyaki Chicken is a great alternative if you prefer. The chicken breast still come as flavorful and tender. You can also try this recipe with pork chops.
  • Use BBQ Sauce – Using BBQ Sauce instead of teriyaki gives you the sweet and spicy flavor.
  • Cream of Soups – This recipe would be great with cream of chicken or mushroom soups. Just substitute the teriyaki sauce with one of these soups and the meal is so creamy. If you need a little more liquid, pour in some chicken broth.
  • Add in Soy Sauce – We love soy sauce. Adding it with the teriyaki sauce makes this almost an Asian Recipe taste. We also like to add in balsamic vinegar.
  • Brown SugarYou can add in a tablespoon of brown sugar for a hint of sweetness to the recipe.
  • Marinate – If you prefer, you can marinate the pork tenderloin for 30 minutes prior to adding to the slow cooker.

    Nate, if you’re still on here. I had to ladle the juices out and make my gravy. Mine never thickened either. Hope this helps.

  2. MADI says:

    GREAT Recipe. I only added more fresh garlic and I made more gravy. Served with Brussel Sprouts – mmmmmmmmmmmmmm good. TYFS

  3. Nate says:

    Flavors were great, everybody loved it! However, my sauce didn’t really thicken up much (if at all). When you add the cornstarch and water mixture, and remove the lid, should you turn the heat off or leave it going? I left mine on without the lid. I’m wondering if that was the problem. Also, about how long should it take at that point? Thank you, can’t wait to try it again!
