Directions

In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the hoisin, soy sauce, cornstarch, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, 5 spice, and ¾ cup water. Add the pork and turn to coat. Cover and cook until the pork is very tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 5 to 6 hours.

Add the vinegar and mix to combine. Serve the pork over the noodles with the broccoli.
