Crockpot Pork and Veggies

1 lb. lean, boneless pork pieces or you can buy lean porkchops and slice them into chunks.
1 cup of beef broth
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup honey
1 T sesame oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 T cornstarch
2 T cooled sauce, taken from the crockpot, after being cooked
Fresh broccoli florets, as many as desired
Chopped mushrooms (I used a large box)
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 of a large onion, chopped
baby carrots, sliced lengthwise  
Hot cooked brown rice (I used red quinoa) 

Brown pork in a large skillet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.  After pork is browned, place in crockpot. Add chopped onion to crockpot as well.
In a large bowl, whisk together beef broth, soy sauce, honey, oil and garlic.  After sauce is well combined, pour over pork in crockpot.  Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
In a cup, stir cornstarch along with 2 T of cooled sauce from the crock pot.  Stir until smooth.  I added a small amount of cool water as well.  Add to crockpot and stir well to combine.  Add broccoli, mushrooms, peppers and carrots and stir well.  Cover and cook an additional 30 minutes on high.  Serve over hot rice or quinoa. I served this with a side of kale and spinach.

So easy and tasted great!
