Crockpot Asian Pork

I'm on a crock pot kick? Can you tell?  This stuff is fantastic over rice, over noodles, by itself.  I love it.  

Asian Pork (From SkinnyTaste)
2 lb lean boneless pork sirloin roast (aka pork center rib roast, pork center loin roast)
kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper
Non-stick oil spray 
1 cup low-sodium fat-free chicken broth
1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp hot sesame oil   (or use sesame oil + pinch red pepper flakes)
1/2 tsp Chinese five spice 
3 cloves crushed garlic
1 tbsp fresh grated ginger root
For topping:
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro


Season pork on all side with salt and fresh cracked pepper. Heat a skillet on medium-high heat, spray with a little oil and brown the pork on all sides for about 7 - 8 minutes.  In the crock pot, combine the broth, soy sauce, balsamic, sugar, sesame oil, Chinese five spice, garlic and ginger; add the pork and set the slow cooker to 8 hours on low. Shred the pork using two forks.  If adding baby spinach,add at the end and cover a few minutes until it wilts. Top with green onions and cilantro.  P.S.  The cilantro makes this OUTSTANDING.
