Tips & tricks for teriyaki roast pork

The thickness of the pork roast is important in this dish because you are cooking it for a long time. Make sure that you choose one that is not too thin so that it can stand up to the high heat.

You will want to slice this into very thin pieces once it is done cooking and while it is warm. The best way to get a nice, thin slice is by using a sharp knife and keeping your cuts shallow. You can also use a serrated knife to get a nice, clean slice.

Compliment this dish with a side of corn on the cob and either mashed potatoes or rice, depending on what type of meal you would like to make.
