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!
