How to Serve

  • Crock pot teriyaki beef is delicious served over a bed of white rice. You can also swap for brown rice, Jasmine rice, or cauliflower rice.
  • Serve this tasty beef alongside a helping of edamame, snap peas, broccoli, or a veggie combo.
  • Top the teriyaki beef with sesame seeds, soy sauce, and sliced green onion.

Can I use a different cut of beef?

Yes, you can use these cuts of beef instead of beef stew meat if desired.

  • Flank steak – no need to cube up. Put in whole and shred after the cooking time is up.
  • Chuck roast or any other beef roast – Cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Steak – Sometimes I have leftover steaks from a value pack and those work great cubed up in this recipe.
  • Ground beef – if you only have ground beef you can definitely use it with this recipe. Brown, crumble and drain before continuing with the recipe.

Recipe FAQs

How can I make this a freezer meal?

This recipe can be put directly in the slow cooker or into Ziplock bags and frozen for later in the month. (Can go longer but risk freezer burn flavors) Thaw in the fridge the day before you want to cook it. Pour contents into the slow cooker and cook as directed in my recipe card below.

How do I store leftovers?

Store any remaining teriyaki beef in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat on the stovetop over medium heat or in the microwave until warmed throughout.

Can I use this slow cooker beef teriyaki recipe with other meat types?

Yes! The rich flavors of the sauce can be used to make chicken teriyaki.
