(luckymommyto2boys ~ Amy ~ Recipezaar)

2-3 lbs pork shoulder, trimmed of fat and bone
1-1/2 teaspoons five-spice powder
1 tablespoon cooking oil
3/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup dry white wine (I used chicken broth)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water

Rub roast with five spice powder.
Sear roast in a skillet with hot oil before placing it in the cooker. (optional)
Mix together and pour over roast: apple juice, wine and soy sauce.
Cover and cook on low setting for 10 to 12 hours or on high setting for 4-1/2 to 5 hours.
For Gravy: Strain cooking liquid.
Skim off fat.
Combine 2 cups of liquid (may have to add water to make 2 cups) with cornstarch and water.
Cook until thick and bubbly.
Serve over rice.
