Why you should try this teriyaki pork chop recipe

Cooking a tasty meal really doesn’t get much easier than this, especially when using the crock pot. Due to the slow cooking process, you can skip marinating the pork chops in a Ziplock bag and putting them in the refrigerator overnight. The cook time is just long enough to let the marinade infuse into the chops, leaving them tasting simply amazing.

These chops also pair perfectly with a variety of sides that are also easy to put together. Check out my serving suggestions and variations below.

Recipe Ingredients

Ingredients for teriyaki pork chops on a table.
  • Pork Chops: You’ll need 2-3 pounds for this recipe, which can come out to about 8 boneless pork chops.
  • Teriyaki Sauce: I prefer the Kikkoman brand of basting and glaze sauce.
  • Pineapples: For the best flavor, I like to use the fresh pineapple chunks, which can be found in the fruit section of the store.

Recipe FAQs

Can I use bone in pork chops?

Yes, bone in pork chops will work great in this recipe instead of the boneless pork chops.

Should I soak the pork chops in a teriyaki marinade?

You don’t have to let the pork chops marinate since they are being cooked in the crock pot.

What are the different variations of this recipe I can try?

Some people like to make grilled teriyaki pork chops by searing them in a hot skillet (or grill pan) for a few minutes per side. You can also create a sweet and sour kind of glaze using orange juice, brown sugar, corn starch, rice wine vinegar, and low sodium soy sauce. Sesame oil and minced garlic also add additional flavor. Mix the combination in a small bowl and pour it into the slow cooker over the chops.

Do I need to use a meat thermometer?

The slow cooker will cook the meat past to point of done, so the meat will be ultra tender. You can use a thermometer if you’d like. The meat should be over 145 degrees.

How do I store leftovers?

Once you are done cooking pork chops in the slow cooker and have served them, place any remaining pork chops in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
