Ingredients

1/2
cup
low-sodium soy sauce
1/2
cup
dark brown sugar
2
tablespoons
rice wine vinegar
1
teaspoon
toasted sesame oil
1
1-inch
piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
1⁄4 to 1⁄2
teaspoon
crushed red pepper
2 1/2
pounds
pork shoulder, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
12
ounces
soba noodles
2
red bell peppers, thinly sliced
1/2
pound
snow peas, trimmed
chopped roasted peanuts, for serving

Directions

  1. In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, stir together the soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, oil, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Add the pork and toss to combine. Cover and cook until the pork is tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total cooking time).
  2. Fifteen minutes before serving, cook the soba noodles according to the package directions, adding the bell peppers and snow peas to the water during the last minute of cooking.
  3. Meanwhile, transfer the pork to a medium bowl; set aside. Pour the cooking liquid into a large skillet and boil until slightly thickened, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the pork and toss to combine. Serve the pork over the noodles and vegetables; sprinkle with the peanuts.
