Pin a Day: Crock Pot Teriyaki Pork

We had a busy Tuesday this week.  Mike was heading to the office, Lola was going to playcare, and I had a ton of errands to get done.  I knew I would be tired by the time dinner came around, so I opted for a crockpot meal with easy to make sides.  I tried a new recipe for Crock Pot Teriyaki Pork.   I followed some of the directions included in the recipe, but sometimes I make changes to best meet our needs.  I started by placing the pork tenderloin in the crockpot.  It called for me to brown the tenderloin, but I decided to skip that step.  I made a sauce of teriyaki sauce, chicken broth, brown sugar, garlic, red pepper flakes (I couldn't find red chiles), pepper, and onions.  I poured the sauce on the tenderloin and cooked it on low for about 5-5.5 hours.  After picking up Mike and Lola, I made some rice and steamed broccoli to serve with the pork.  I sliced the pork carefully, as it almost fell apart.  I served the pork with the rice and broccoli and we drizzled the leftover sauce on top.  This pork was amazing!  It was flavorful and tender.  Had the pork fallen apart, it would have made a great pulled pork, too.  Sometimes its good to have a nice stand by crockpot recipe, and this recipe definitely fit the bill!
