Teriyaki Pulled Pork in the Slow Cooker Recipe

Teriyaki Pulled Pork in the Slow Cooker


Use your slow cooker to make this Asian pulled pork cooked in homemade teriyaki sauce. It's perfect for sandwiches, over rice, in a wrap, or for tacos.


  • ¾ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup pineapple juice
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more to taste
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 3 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 ½ pounds pork shoulder roast
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. Combine soy sauce, chicken broth, pineapple juice, brown sugar, sherry, honey, garlic, sesame oil, ginger, and red pepper flakes in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk the cold water and cornstarch in a small bowl until you have a thin slurry, and add to the saucepan, stirring to incorporate.
  2. Bring sauce to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer to slightly thicken, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove teriyaki sauce from heat.
  3. Place pork roast in a slow cooker and pour teriyaki sauce over the top. Cook on Low until the pork is tender and falls apart when pulled with a fork, 6 to 8 hours.
  4. Remove the pork from the cooker and let rest for 5 minutes before shredding with 2 forks.
  5. Return the shredded meat to the pot, mix with the sauce, and let it warm up for about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
