*Untested* Crock-pot Char Siu (Chinese BBQ) Pork Roast (untested)

This sounds yummy, and I'm scared of pork typically (thank my husband for a few months of eating nothing but pork loin when we first got married...

Crock-pot Char Siu (Chinese BBQ) Pork Roast

Adapted from Cooking Light

8 servings

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
3 TBSP ketchup
3 TBSP honey* or agave nectar*
2 tsp garlic, minced
2 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 tsp sesame oil*
1/2 tsp five-spice powder
2 pounds boneless Boston butt pork roast (I'm going to use pork loin), trimmed
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

Combine all ingredients excluding chicken broth and pork in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk. Place in a large zip-lock bag with pork. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 2+ hours, turning occasionally.

Spray inside of crock with nonstick spray. Place pork and marinade in a crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

Remove pork from crock-pot using a slotted spoon; place on a cutting board or work surface. Cover with aluminum foil; keep warm.

Add broth to sauce in crock-pot. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes or until sauce thickens. Shred pork with 2 forks; serve with sauce, steamed vegetables, and over steamed brown rice
