Wonderful, easy-to-make Chinese barbequed pork. Recipe taken from Cooking Light. Great with brown rice pilaf and steamed veggies.

A nice crockpot alternative for busy days! The meat was flavorful & tender. I used bone in country pork ribs. 5 spice powder isn't one of my favorite spices, but it was well used in this recipe. It was a mild note rather than overpowering everything. I opted to not use the broth and thickened the sauce with a slurry of cornstarch. Seerved with brocolli and rice. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
