This is such a flavorful dinner! Not only is it flavorful, it’s so simple to prepare.
The result…perfectly cooked onions that have soaked up all the yummy flavors from the teriyaki sauce, along with shredded pork that has done the same. Top with a few sesame seeds and/or sliced green onions and dinner is served!

So simple to put together – and so so delicious!
Hope you enjoy!!
