When it comes to needed easy weeknight meals in my arsenal, my Slow Cooker is at the top of my list of favorite kitchen equipment. I use it several times a week all throughout the year from All-Purpose Shredded Chicken to fabulous Mexican Beans. It definitely makes my nights so much easier!

We are getting ready to move to a new home and I have been cleaning out my freezer. Apparently I have stock-piled all kinds of proteins to last us for the next ten years. Since I am not willing to “move” an entire freezer full of food, it became clear that I needed to use it up. That revelation became a challenge and I’m trying to come up with new and different ways to cook all this meat.

This Pork Loin was my first victim. It actually started as a variation of my Brown Sugar and Garlic Barbecue Chicken…until I realized I didn’t have an barbecue sauce. So I had to change my plan, and this Teriyaki Pork is what came about.

It’s got a great combination of sweet and salty, and it delicious as a roast with the teriyaki sauce, or shredded and served over rice with some steamed veggies.
