Tips & Tricks on how to make the perfect Slow Cooker Beef Teriyaki:

  • I always say this, but a good meat centered meal starts with quality meat, preferably use organic beef for this meal.
  • Cut the beef into 1-1 1/2 inches chunks, so they hold their shape after cooking.
  • Cornstarch is a key ingredient in here, do not try to replace it with flour, the results will not be the same.
  • I used a LOT of garlic in this recipe, we love garlic in our family and I think it works really well with the sweet and salty flavors. Feel free to use less if you are not a huge garlic fan.
  • You can add red pepper flakes for the dish to be spicier.
  • For even more flavor you can add some fresh ginger as well.
  • Using fresh ginger and garlic will add amazing flavor and taste to the sauce.

Tools/Ingredients I used to make the Slow Cooker Beef Teriyaki Recipe:

  • Crockpot – very reasonably priced and definitely a kitchen must have if you are busy.

  • Cornstarch – I prefer using cornstarch instead of flour to thicken sauces, and this organic brand is my favorite.
