Let dinner make itself tonight, with this flavorful Slow Cooker Teriyaki Beef, made in the CrockPot.
I use my CrockPot for dinner on a regular basis. There’s nothing better than a hands-off dinner that cooks itself. This Slow Cooker Teriyaki Beef is perfect for weeknights, when you just don’t have time to make dinner.
Because I like to cook from scratch as much as possible, this recipe is made with real ingredients, aside from a little ketchup (and for that, I buy the kind that has no preservatives– just real ingredients). However, made from scratch doesn’t have to mean difficult. You can have this recipe into the slow cooker in less than 10 minutes.
Does teriyaki sauce tenderize beef?
Teriyaki sauce has vinegar and soy sauce in it, both of which are said to tenderize beef. On top of that, this teriyaki beef is cooked low and slow in the CrockPot, making it fall-apart tender.
What goes well with Teriyaki Beef?
We like eating our slow cooker teriyaki beef over rice, with a side of veggies. Some of our favorite sides to go with this dinner recipe are a nice green salad, green beans, or roasted garlic butter carrots.
Looking for more easy dinner recipes?
- 2 lbs. rib steak or a small roast
- 1/2 C. olive oil
- 1/2 C. low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 C. ketchup
- 2 Tbsp. white vinegar
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- Place beef in slow cooker.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients.
- Pour over beef.
- Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, until tender.
- Shred beef with 2 forks, stir, and cook for another 30 minutes.
If using a roast instead of steak, your cook time will likely be closer to 8 hours, due to the thickness of the beef. Steak will cook more quickly.
