Fantastic recipe. I really love the flavors and how easy it is to make. Also, the ingredients are generally things I have on hand. The orange zest really adds to the sauce. I used my microplane zester. Also, I added a whole onion, because I love them. If your crockpot tends to cook quickly you may want to use a frozen brisket rather than a thawed one or cut an hour or so off the cooking time. My brisket cooked really fast. Also, if you cannot have or do not like salty foods you may want to use lower sodium teriyaki sauce or dillude the sauce with some water. I promise the recipe will still be delicious if you make it with a low sodium diet/taste in mind.

Well this was a breeze to fix and tasted very good.Enjoyed by all and I will make this again. It was slightly less moist than I was expecting, but still very good.Note:There are 2 different types of terijaki, one that the recipe calls for (baste & glaze, which is thick like BBQ sauce) and regular terijaki (sauce & marinade, which is very thin)...I made sure to get the thick kind as specified.

This is one I've been making for quite awhile and I'm always pleased with how tender it comes out. The orange combines really well with the teriyaki sauce flavor. Easy and impressive.
