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!

Whisk the cornstarch slurry into the slow cooker, with the sauce.
Add the chops back to the slow cooker and Cook for 30 minutes longer, until the sauce is slightly thickened.
