1/2cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/2cup brown sugar
1 to 2tablespoons chili-garlic sauce (found in the Asian aisle of the supermarket)
1tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the soy sauce, sugar, chili-garlic sauce, ginger, five-spice powder (if using), teaspoon salt, and teaspoon pepper. Add the pork and toss to coat. Cook, covered, until the pork is tender, on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total cooking time) or on low for 7 to 8 hours.

Twenty-five minutes before serving, cook the rice according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, skim off and discard any fat from the pork. Gently fold the bok choy into the pork and cook, covered, until heated through, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve with the rice and sprinkle with the scallions.

I usually make coconut rice to eat with this. Just make rice as usual instructions but replace half the water with coconut milk from a can. So good.
