You know those recipes that when you think of them, your saliva glands just go crazy? Well, this one is definitely one of those and anything that has balsamic vinegar in is an A+ in my book. This recipe is probably my very favorite–it has the sweet but also the savory.
Slow Cooker Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin
(2 pound) boneless pork tenderloin (or regular pork loin)
1 1/2 teaspoons ground sage
1 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
3 cloves garlic crushed
1⁄2 cup water
Place in slow cooker with 1/2 cup water. Cook on low for 6 hours.
GLAZE (put on the last hour of cooking)
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoon cornstarch
1⁄2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 cup water
4 tablespoons soy sauce
About 1 hour before pork is done, combine ingredients for glaze in a glass bowl.
Put in the microwave on high for 2 1/2 min, stir it, and then 2 1/2 more min until it’s thickened.
Shred meat and pour on glaze the last hour of cooking.
