Balsamic and brown sugar glazed pork recipe

6 Jun

I made this tonight and it turned out amazing.  However I made sweet potato fries and they did not turn out so well, they were quite soggy.  Oh well, win some and lose some. 

Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin

 
This was a cinch to make and seriously delicious. Casey and I both loved it and it will definitely be a regular on our menu. It made a fabulous meal served with Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Walnuts.  It was one of those meals that left me completely satisfied and happy but without feeling like I overdid it. Recipe from Let’s Dish.
 

Ingredients:
 
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
 
Glaze
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
 
Directions:
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.

    I just wanted you to know I tried your recipe and it was absolutely heavenly. The tangy sweetness of the balsamic brown sugar glaze complimented the earthy flavor of the sage. Thank you for sharing. 🙂
