Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pot Roast - My Sweet Sanity

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pot Roast

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pot Roast

I love my slow cooker! I honestly, really, really do but sometimes I just simply forget that I even have one. I have made a home for it on my counter so that I see it throughout the day so that I then think, huh, I should make something in that. Sadly though I still only use it a few times a month in a good month. I don’t know that if in the morning my dinner brain is just not functioning in high gear yet so I just don’t think about. Maybe it’s just another example of how I work better under pressure so scrambling to come up with dinner at 5:00 pm wins out over the easy, non-headache inducing slow cooker option. Whatever the reason though I am trying to get past it and use it more. I know it will make life easier. I also know that we will end up spending less on take-out too if I use it more. I just need to get my mind in the game and do it now.

Last week I did use it one day and I even made a brand spanking new recipe for it. I decided that slow cooker teriyaki pot roast sounded like a great idea and you know what? It really, really was a great idea! It came out very tasty and my whole group loved it. My daughter who eats only a few bites of meat a day and my nine-year old who we almost have to force feed because of medications (they make him not want to eat) both had two helpings. Seriously, if I get either of them to eat one whole helping I feel like mom of the year so two whole helpings was like a minor miracle.

  1. 2.5 - 3 lb. roast
  2. 1 c. garlic and green onion teriyaki sauce (I used Kikkoman)
  3. 1 c. beef broth
  4. 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  5. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  6. 1/2 tsp. pepper
  7. 1 10 oz. bag of stir-fry vegetables
  8. cooked rice
  1. Place the roast in the slow cooker and whisk together the eriyaki sauce, beef broth and all of the seasonings. Pour over the roast and cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours. Half an hour before it's done add in the frozen vegetables and stir to toss with the sauce.
  2. Take the roast out and shred it and then place it back into the sauce and stir to mix with the vegetables. Serve over the prepared rice.

    Adding this to my list of slow cooker meals I can actually eat! They have to be low in sugar which this seems to be. 🙂

    We are fans of our slow cooker – but now that you mention it, it has been weeks since we had it out.

    I have to be honest – my mouth started watering just reading the title of this post. I feel pretty confident that this will be on my menu for next week.

    I’m pinning it now to make sure I’ve got it.

    I have a roast in the freezer that is now begging to be made like this. My husband is a big fan of teriyaki and we usually only make it with chicken, so this will be a nice change.
