Crock-Pot season is here!!! And so is this incredibly moist, tender, and flavorful whole 30 and Paleo-approved slow cooker beef teriyaki!
To be honest, slow cookers should be in season year-round but I have a tendency to forget their existence until the temperature starts to drop outside.
Speaking of dropping temperatures…
This past weekend, my husband and three of his buddies ran a 100-mile relay trail race in Bandera, TX. Each of the guys ran 25 miles over the course of the day.
The first leg of the race started at 5 AM and the last leg, which was Cohl’s, of course, did not end until after 10 PM.
Texas weather tends to be pretty unpredictable in October. One day it will be a scorching 90 degrees and before you know it temperatures drop into the upper 20’s.
Yup… this gal camped out in FREEZING weather. (I’m not going to lie, though… we have quite the legit sleeping bag!)
We had just returned from a 5 day trip to Sedona, Arizona, slept 2 nights in our own bed, and then were on the road again to the race in Bandera.
In times like these, it is always nice to have nutritious and easy-to-make meals in your recipe arsenal.

What I love about this slow cooker beef teriyaki is that it literally takes no time at all to prepare it! Throw the sauce ingredients in a high-speed blender, toss it in a slow cooker with the beef, and let the Crock-Pot do the work.
Where Can You Find the Unique Ingredients?
In the slow cooker beef teriyaki recipe below you will see a few somewhat unique ingredients. Most of these can be found at your local Whole Foods or specialty grocers, but they can also be ordered online through Amazon.
You can click the links in the recipe below if you would like to see the specific brands that I use.
Don’t have a Crock-Pot yet?
Slow cookers are an extremely affordable kitchen appliance that are well worth the space they take up in your kitchen. They come in various sizes, but I would highly encourage you to get at least a 6-QT Crock-Pot. This will give you plenty of room to make big batches of soups, stews or even queso dip for a party.
Not wanting to clean up a mess?
Sometimes your slow cooker can be a bit of a hassle to clean-up. If you want to save even more time, these Slow Cooker Liners can be thrown away after use.
