Sweet Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin {Crock Pot}

If your wondering, the answer is yes! I did take this picture before “the accident” “which must not be named” happened.

And YES!  look no further for your Sunday Dinner main dish because once you have tasted this succulent Sweet Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin, everything else will just taste wrong. I’m not even kidding. And the best part is it is SOOOO easy. I love it because it has a different flavor than any other crock pot meat I’ve made before, and its mouthwatering, finger lickn’ good!   (Okay, and you don’t have to just limit yourself to Sunday! This good hooch can be thrown together any day of the week).

Something about the Balsamic Glaze just does it for me. The fact that you make it in the slow cooker also might help my love for this meat.

I am a terrible meat cooker.  Its true. I am never confident when I am cooking meat because I feel like its always too dry, over done, or underdone, but cooking meat in the crock pot is a breath of fresh air for me. Especially this meat. And especially on Sundays when we more often than not have people over.  This is a no fail, elegant, winner! Trust me!

*Serves 6-8

INGREDIENTS:
Pork:
2 pound boneless pork loin roast, trimmed of large fat pockets
1 teaspoon ground sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, finely minced or crushed
1/2 cup water

Glaze:
1/2 cup brown sugar, light or dark
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce

DIRECTIONS:
In a small bowl, combine the sage, salt, pepper and garlic. Rub the spices all over the roast. Place the pork roast in the slow cooker and pour in the 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Near the end of the cooking time for the roast, combine the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce and let the mixture simmer, stirring occasionally, until it thickens.

Remove the pork from the slow cooker, shred and place on a platter or plate. Drizzle the glaze over the pork and serve.
