- Marinate the Meat – Also, it’s totally optional but it’s really yummy to marinade the meat for about 30 minutes prior to placing in the slow cooker. Then place the marinated pork chops in the crock pot.
- Change the Protein – Teriyaki Chicken is a great alternative if you prefer. The chicken breast still come as flavorful and tender.
- 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.
What to serve with Teriyaki Pork Chops:
- Serve with Rice – It’s great served over rice. Do you know how to freeze rice? It’s so easy to grab from the freezer and reheat in minutes. This is another way I make life easier around here! Brown rice works great too.
- Add a Vegetable – We love steamed or roasted broccoli or a side dish of cooked carrots.
- Mashed Potatoes – My family loves mashed potatoes and this is a great option with this meal. The teriyaki sauce poured over the potatoes makes a great meal.
Tips for the best Teriyaki Pork Chops:
- Use thicker Bone-in Pork Chops – Using bone-in results in amazingly tender and juice meat. The bone keeps the meat insulated so that it holds in the juice.
- Boneless Pork Chops – Boneless Chops will work, just make sure they are thick as the thin pork chops cook to fast resulting in the pork chops drying out.
How to Store Leftovers:
This is a great meal for storing leftovers. We like to place the meal in individual containers as they make an easy lunch the next day. It saves my husband going through the drive-thru which saves time and money.
Make sure to place in air tight microwave safe container. Then once you are ready to reheat, place in the microwave and heat in 1 minute intervals until heated.
