Indonesian Pork Roast

READY IN: 6hrs 40mins
Recipe by Charlotte J

I love my crockpot. With school starting back next week our crazy scheduleing will also start. So the fastest way I can get a meal on the table to have some family time and everyone eat together is important to me. That is why I use my crockpot more during school.

Oh well,one son loved it but the rest of us didn't. I may have overcooked the meat because it shredded when I tried to cut it. I think the 5 Spice Powder contained some spice(s) that we didn't like much. I think it was anise. Thanks for posting.
