Welcome back to my world of culinary creations! Today is my first day on the floor at my new job and since I will be working three 12 hours shifts back to back, I am entrusting my handy crock pot to do most of my wifey chores while I am gone!
This recipe comes from C+C Marriage Factory: Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin.
My hubby is a definite carnivore and I wanted to try something different than our chicken and ground turkey meals.
This was definitely a hit and will be one that we will continue to serve in our Aslan abode.
1 (2 pound) boneless pork tenderloin (or regular 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
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Combine sage, salt, pepper and garlic. Rub over roast. Place in slow cooker with 1/2 cup water. 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.
|Meat placed into Crockpot with rub|
|Ingredients for Glaze...BEST part!|
|Be patient with stirring your glaze. It will thicken over the heat...don't add more cornstarch (YIKES)|
|Highly recommend cooking for full 6-8 hours. Meat is extremely tender that way!|
|Used extra glaze to serve over rice|
Yum! And how easy was that? Sure, it may seem as if I slaved over the stove all day...but I definitely did NOT!
