Crockpot Teriyaki Beef

We have a big family. This is the amount for 10 people, but we generally eat seconds and there's a little left over. In other words, this is about 15-20 servings (since my little ones get small servings).

Crockpot Teriyaki Beef

5 lbs Beef chuck roast; cubed inch pieces
1/2 a #10 can of Pineapple Tidbits with juice
1 - 12 oz jar Kikkoman Teriyaki Baste & Glaze
1 cup Brown sugar
6 cloves garlic; minced
2 cups Beef Broth
1 Tb sriracha sauce
1 tsp Sesame Chili Oil (found in Asian markets)
1/8 cup soy sauce
1-2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce (Lea & Perrins)

Cube beef into inch pieces. Add to 6 Qt crockpot.

Put pineapple over top of beef chunks.

Mix all other ingredients. Pour over beef and pineapple. Cover with lid. Turn to high. Cook 4-6 hours, until beef is tender.

Serve over rice.
