Nice oriental entree made easy for you! The flavored meat and vegetable sauce produced by crock pot cooking is best served over hot cooked rice. Just right for the busy person who wants to work or shop while it cooks!

I was disappointed as well. Though it tasted okay (although a little salty) it had no hint of Teriyaki to it at all. My husband and I found it okay and I was able to get the kids to eat some but it's not something I will make again.
I must say this disappointed me. The flavor was more braised beef and vegetables than Asian really. t smelled terrific cooking, but the flavor just didn't transfer over to taste. It was edible for sure, just not really a teriyaki.
This was really good and easy to make. I used about a pound and a half of steak cut in strips (hubby likes lots of meat). I doubled the sauce and added a bag of stir fry vegetabables. I also didn't cook this in a crock pot but on the stove as it was icy this morning and I wanted to leave early and didn't get a chance to throw it in the crock. It cooked up nicely on the stove. I also added the rice directly into the pot. Everyone enjoyed it. My oldest ate three helpings.
