Food Friday - Char Siu Pork

I got this recipe from my sister but haven't made it yet. She made it for us Monday night though and it was really delicious so I pass it along to you, my faithful readers. (the parenthetical notes are my sister's)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup hoisin sauce (I didn't have any hoisin sauce so I didn't add it, it was great without it, but maybe its even better with it)
3 TBS ketchup
3 TBS honey
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp ground ginger (or 2 tsp fresh)
1 tsp dark sesame oil
1/2 tsp Chinese five spice powder
2 lbs boneless pork roast (I got a cheap roast with the bone in and it worked fine)
1/2 cup chicken broth
Mix ingredients together. Marinate for 2 hours (I did this but next time I will just cook it with out marinating it). Cover and cook for 8 hours.
I shredded it after about 5 or so hours and then put the meat back in for and hour or so. I served it over rice. Very easy and yummy.
