crockpot brown sugar and balsamic glazed pork loin – townie

bumpkin told me she was going to make a pork dish — so i took out a pork loin to defrost and then i went off to search for a recipe — i had bookmarked this one on two different blogs so i decided this was the one!    the pork itself was ok – nothing special or flavorful.. the sauce though was delicious!  i served over egg noodles!



brown sugar and balsamic glazed pork loin

adapted from let’s dish


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
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.
