Reviews for Teriyaki Pork Roast
"I have made this before and now I remember why it wasn't included in my 'favorites' when I made it again recently. I followed the directions exactly and I end up with 3 pounds of very dry pork. No amount of sauce will help."
"This turned out very well. It was moist and tender. The family liked it. It smelled really good as it cooked, but the flavor was not overpowering. I'll make it again."
"I usually just use bottled teriyaki sauce. As one of my dear friends would say "this was really quite nice". That is high praise. The only change I made was to use Splenda rather than real sugar. For my husband and I, we now have three more meals to look forward to."
"I tried just using teriyaki sauce from a bottle when I was in a hurry but this was better. I used orange juice and liked the taste."
"Very good. My family really likes this and so do I as it is so easy to put in and come home to a great meal."
"Everyone loves this recipe. I use 2 pork tenderloins instead of a roast. I've also used orange juice when I didn't have apple juice available, with great results. One of my all-time favorite slow-cooker recipes."
"This is my favorite pork roast. Everytime I make it people love it! Patty"
"This is very good. Just what I was looking for, good flavor"
