Instructions
  1. In a large pan, heat the oil. Add the onions, garlic, and ginger. Sauté until onions are softened, about 5 minutes. Add shiitakes and sauté until the mushrooms begin to soften. Transfer to slow cooker.
  2. Stir broth, miso, soy sauce, and mirin into slow cooker. Add chicken to slow cooker. Season with pepper. Cover and cook until chicken is tender, 6 to 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high.
  3. Use 2 forks to shred chicken in the slow cooker. Stir in noodles, spinach, and sesame oil. Cover and cook on high until noodles are tender, about 3 to 8 minutes and spinach has wilted.
  4. Serve immediately with scallions and sesame seeds.
Recipe Notes

Chef's Note: Toasting the sesame seeds adds more flavor. To toast the sesame seeds, place them in a dry skillet over medium heat. Shake the skillet occasionally to prevent burning and toast until they are lightly brown, about 5 minutes.

Mix it Up: Use pork instead of chicken. For a vegetarian option, reduce the cooking time in half and use tofu and vegetable stock instead.
