Three fourths of our family loved this Crock Pot Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin. It was moist with a great flavor, and the sauce was outstanding. Luckily I doubled the recipe, because we gobbled it up for two dinners, and put it on a couple of sandwiches, too. Lily didn’t like it, but she’s going through a spotty vegetarian stage, and is mostly meat-free these days. It really gets under my husband’s skin, which I find hilarious. I don’t know if anything would disappoint him more than one of our kids becoming an honest to goodness vegetarian. That man is a carnivore, through and through.
I used my 6.5-Quart Crock-Pot Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker to make this recipe.
Crock Pot Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin
- 1 (2 pound) boneless pork loin
- 1 teaspoon ground sage
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch (maybe a bit more)
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- Combine sage, salt, pepper and garlic, and rub over roast.
- Place in slow cooker with 1/2 cup water.
- Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- About 1 hour before roast is done, combine ingredients for glaze in small sauce pan.
- Heat and stir until mixture thickens.
- Brush roast with glaze 2 or 3 times during the last hour of cooking.
- Serve with remaining glaze on the side.
The leftovers make a delicious sandwich!
