- In a 5- or 6-qt slow cooker, combine pork, carrots, ginger, garlic, and five-spice powder. In a large glass measure, whisk together broth and hoisin sauce; pour over pork and vegetables. Cover and cook until pork is fork-tender, 4 to 5 hours on High or 8 to 10 hours on Low.
- With a slotted spoon, transfer pork to a medium bowl; cover to keep warm.
- In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce and cornstarch until smooth. Whisk into slow cooker. Cover and cook until mixture simmers, about 10 minutes on High. Stir in stir-fry vegetables. Cover and cook until vegetables are tender, about 45 minutes. Return pork to slow cooker and cook until heated through, about 10 minutes more. Serve sprinkled with sesame seeds.
