Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Rated as 4.48 out of 5 Stars

"This sweet and spicy tenderloin recipe is super easy! Make it as spicy as you like by adding more or different types of chili peppers. This version is mild enough for my 4-year-old to enjoy. Two 1 pound tenderloins might only feed six because everyone will want seconds!"

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Brown tenderloins on all sides, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix together teriyaki sauce, chicken broth, and brown sugar in a bowl. Stir in garlic, red chile pepper, onion, and black pepper.
  2. Put browned tenderloins into slow cooker, cover with the teriyaki sauce mixture. Cook on Low for about 4 hours, turning 2 to 3 times during the cooking time to ensure even doneness. Internal temperature in the tenderloin should reach 180 degrees F (82 degrees C).
  3. Remove tenderloins from the slow cooker and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. If desired, spoon liquid over slices when serving.

Cook on low, not high. I followed the recipe to the letter other than the slow cooker temperature setting and it came out wonderfully. Four hours on low is plenty done. I used a roux to make ...

Dry, dry, dry. Maybe if the liquid completely covered the meat it wouldn't have been so dry. Or if I cooked it on low for 6 hours instead of on high for 3.5 hours. I put some of the liquid in...

This was delicious and very flavorful, but another reviewer said to cook it on low and I will try this next time because the meat fell apart when I tried to slice it. The aroma while it cooked ...
