Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin Crock-Pot Recipe

I have been playing around with ingredients lately and I bought a pork tenderloin to try out. I love teriyaki sauce so I thought I’d give it a whirl with a pork tenderloin.

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin Crock-Pot Recipe

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 cup chicken broth, or if you have chicken base on hand, use about a tablespoon of that.
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic, or use fresh – totally up to you.
  • 1 packet of onion soup mix
  • Salt & pepper

In a frying pan, sprinkle with salt & pepper, then brown the pork tenderloin with olive oil. I used light, but that’s up to your preference.

In your crock-pot, mix together the teriyaki sauce, chicken broth or chicken stock, minced garlic and onion soup mix. Once the pork tenderloin is in the crock-pot, use a spoon and pour some of the liquid over the pork tenderloin throught it’s cook time. You don’t have to, but if you are home – splash it a bit.

Cover and cook on high for 8 hours.

The salt and pepper are all that you really need to add. The combination between the onion soup mix and the teriyaki sauce really season this beautifully!

With this meal, I used some of the leftover juice from the all day simmer to make a brown gravy.

I seriously don’t know what I’d do without my Crock-Pot! I don’t like to slave hours over a meal when it takes just 5 minutes for the family to scarf it down.

  1. I just put this in for dinner this am I just want to clarify it is in high for 8 hours? I was worried all the liquid would dry up.

  2. @ Robyn, thanks for the tip :-) I used that pan because my others were in the dishwasher. Lol It browned nicely though. Not sure about the sodium content though.

  3. @Jessica, it wasn’t dry. Omg it was so moist and was amazing!

  4. Sounds yummy! Was it dry?

  5. I bet that was good – I’m wondering if the sodium content on this was high though? Also a tip – brown in a regular pan, not a non-stick pan, you will get better browning.

  6. Thanks for sharing this!!!!
