Slow Cooker Balsamic Glaze Pork Loin

Slow Cooker Balsamic Glaze Pork Loin

Have you heard of Pinterest failures or Pinfails? I'm not sure how popular they are now, but when Pinterest was first hitting its heyday Pinterest failures were more popular too. For those who are not aware they are when people try to replicate what they find on Pinterest and fail miserably. Some of them turn out quite humorously.

Thankfully I haven't made any total failures when trying to replicate a pin. Generally I'm quite pleasantly surprised with how things turn out. This Pinterest copy cat is no different.

You can see I served the balsamic glazed pork loin with some salad. It was amazing, better than I expected.

Serves 6-8

INGREDIENTS:


Pork:
2 pounds boneless pork tenderloin
1 teaspoon ground sage
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
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:

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 to 8 hours. Near the end of the cooking time for the roast, combine the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat 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.


I only slightly adapted this recipe from Mel's Kitchen Cafe, so please give her the love.
