Crock Pot Recipe - Teriyaki Pork Roast


My all-time favorite, never-fail recipe is for Teriyaki Pork Roast. I've made it many times, and it's fabulous EVERY single time!! I'd love to give someone credit for the recipe, but I have no idea where it came from.


Teriyaki Pork Roast

3/4 c. (6 oz.) apple juice
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder ( I use Tastefully Simple's Garlic Garlic - It's amazing!)
1/8 teaspoon pepper
about a 2 3/4 pound pork roast (I usually make a smaller one)

Mix everything except the meat in a crock pot.
Add the roast. Turn to coat. Leave it fat side up.
Cook on low for 7-8 hours.


We like to serve this with green beans and baked (or microwaved) yams. YUMMY!! We often freeze the leftovers and eat them a couple of weeks later. It's just as good the second time!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you're in a hurry, you can get this pork roast ready for the oven instead. Follow the directions above but use an oven-safe roaster. Cover and cook at 325 degrees for 30 minutes per pound. The meat should reach an internal temperature of 170 degrees. It's not quite as tender if you make it in the oven, but it's good if you forget to start your crock pot. (Yep! That's a tip from my personal experience!!)

Hi! Found you through Money Saving Mom's Mr. Linky...I can hardly wait to try this recipe! I have a much larger roast in my freezer from a few weeks ago when it was dirt cheap, so I'll be sure to double the recipe, but it sounds amazing! Thanks so much for sharing! I love my crockpot, too, but don't have too many recipes. I'll be sure to stop back by. I've recently become a "couponer" and love finding new ways to be frugal. My friends are getting into it, too, and we've even started a little "Mommysavers" group to share tips and support each other in our efforts. :)

Oh, and I have a 4-year-old, too (a boy) and love staying at home with him (and my 2-year-old).

God bless!

I love using the crockpot in the summer months since it doesn't heat up my kitchen like the oven does. Thanks for sharing!

I'm definitely adding this recipe to my "to try" list. My daughter loves teriyaki recipes so I don't think I'll get any complaints that night. :)

Thanks for sharing the recipe!
