Yes, five hours is fine. It partly depends on the recipe, but less time will usually work too. How are you cooking them?

Searing in cast iron pan, finishing in oven:)

Since pork can dry out so quickly, it helps if when you finish them in the oven there is some type of liquid in the pan to create steam/moisture in the oven (broth, water, moisture from apples or vegetables, etc.). Sounds like a nice dinner!
