run to the store

I’ve found your dinner for tonight.   Brown Sugar Balsamic Pork Loin.   Heads up, you’ll need a Crock Pot, but it’s ahhhmazing.  I found this on Pinterest via C+C Marriage Factory

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.

I’ll admit, the first time I tried this, I’d never used a Crock Pot (or slow cooker, whatever you call it) before and I was convinced it was a fire hazard, I came back to the house about 3 times to check on it.    It ended up taking a little longer than anticipated because I kept taking the lid off to check on it, but when it finally finished up (about 9 hours) it was outstanding!!!   I paired it with flashed green beans and mashed sweet potatoes.

Great idea for tonight, but if you wanna eat before 8pm you better run out and get started now!


  1. Nice glaze 🙂
