My slow cooker becomes my best friend during the winter! Weeknight dinners are a piece of cake and always taste amazing because they’ve been slowly cooking all day! Plus the slow cooker keeps the house nice and warm! This is a super easy and delicious recipe for teriyaki pork. I like to serve it with brown rice and a side of peas or mixed vegetables!
