Crockpot Char Siu Pork Roast

From kp at Yaaps:
Made this out of a recent Cooking Light and it was so good I thought I’d share.

Slow Cooker Char Siu Pork Roast

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
3 TBS ketchup
3 TBS honey
2 tsp bottled minced garlic
2 tsp grated peeled fresh ginger
1 tsp dark sesame oil
1/2 tsp five-spice powder
2 pounds boneless Boston butt pork roast, trimmed
1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth

1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Place in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add pork to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator at least 2 hours, turning occasionally. (I did it overnight so that I could just pop it into the cooker in the AM)
2. Place pork and marinade in an electric slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours.
3. Remove pork from slow cooker using a slotted spoon; place on cutting board or work surface. Cover with aluminum foil; keep warm.
4. Add broth to sauce in slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 30 minutes or until sauce thickens. Shred pork with 2 forks; serve with sauce. (My sauce didn’t thicken and it would have been even yummier if it did)

Yield: 8 servings (3 oz. pork and 1/4 cup sauce)
