Teriyaki Sandwiches

The meat for these sandwiches comes out of the slow cooker tender and flavorful. Living in the foothills of the Cascades, we frequently have deer and elk in the freezer. I sometimes substitute one or the other in this recipe, and it never tastes like game. -Bernice Muilenburg, Molalla, Oregon

    I like to double this recipe and when the meat has cooked for the 7 hours I then shred the beef. Instead of the liquid in the meat since that soaks into the beef I drain the pineapple juice into the measuring cup and do not double this part of the recipe. If I need to add a little water I do, but 2 cans of pineapple have enough juice. Yummy!

    I love this recipe and use it alot - mine has never dried out. I do use low sodium soy sauce since I found it salty the first time, but otherwise excellent and very easy.

    I don't know if the liquid quantities were incorrect, but making this in the crockpot, I ended up with 2 pounds of dried up steak that was beyond rescuable.
