Roast Pork Soup with Soba Noodles and Bok Choy

Brought to you by Kels

2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1 to 2 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
1 pork loin (about 2.5 pounds)
6 cups chicken stock
1.5 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and cut into thin slices
3 gloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 head bok choy, sliced
1 pound soba noodles, cooked

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In small bowl, combine hoisin sauce, sugar, and five-spice powder.  Baste pork with sauce and roast 45 to 60 minutes, or until just cooked through.

2.) Let meat rest 15 minutes and slice into thin matchstick pieces.

3.) Place pork in crock-pot slow cooker and add stock, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and bok choy.  Cover and cook on LOW 6 to 7 hours or on HIGH 3 to 4 hours.

4.) Stir in soba noodles and cook until just heated through.

This makes a LARGE portion, so feel free to cut down accordingly.  Also, I had trouble with all the liquid being absorbed into the noodles when I put the noodles into the crock pot at the end.  Overall, this was a pretty good dish and I would recommend that you try it!  This is definitely a full day ordeal though so it is good for Sundays and then you will have leftovers for the week!  
Enjoy :)
