Slow Cooker Fiery Beef and Noodles

We love this dish so much!  The flavors are amazing and the spiciness is definitely there!  Great for sinus clearing. :)  The beef is cooked slowly in an amazing mixture of exotic flavors until is super tender.  And the best part is that it already includes the carbs, so no need for a complimentary dish.   Enjoy!
-1 Tbs vegetable oil
-4-5 garlic cloves, minced
-1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
-1 tsp ground pepper
-1 tsp Chinese 5 spice powder
-1/3 cup soy sauce
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp ground ginger
-1 Tbs brown sugar
-1.5 lbs beef stew meat
-8 oz spaghetti, cooked al dente
-8 oz shredded cabbage (one of those small bags of pre-shredded cabbage works great!)
In your slow cooker, mix the oil, garlic, pepper flakes, pepper, Chinese powder. soy sauce, salt, ginger and sugar.  Once well mixed, add the beef chunks and give it a good stir until all the beef is nicely covered in the sauce mixture.  Cover and cook on low for 5 hours.
Add the cooked pasta and the cabbage.  Stir, cover and cook on low for 30 more minutes.  Scoop into bowls and enjoy!
