Crockpot Brown Sugar Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin

This recipe is one of my many "Pinterest-finds" & one I have made at least 3 times now as well as shared with others. Those "others" I speak of raved about how good this pork tenderloin was so thought it would be a good one to put on the blog. Give it a try - you too won't be disappointed!

Crock pot Brown Sugar Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin
2-3 pounds Pork Tenderloin
1 tsp ground sage
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 T cornstarch
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 T soy sauce

Mix together the seasonings: sage, salt, pepper & garlic. Rub over the tenderloin. Place 1/2 cup water & the tenderloin in crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8hours.

1 hour before the roast is finished, mix together the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan; brown sugar, cornstarch, balsamic vinegar, water, soy sauce.

Heat over medium heat & stir until mixture thickens - about 4 minutes. Brush roast with glaze 2-3 times during the last hour of cooking. (For a more caramelized crust, remove from crock pot & place on aluminum lined sheet pan, glaze & set under broiler for 1-2 minutes until bubbly & caramelized. Repeat 2-3 more times until desired crust is achieved.)

Serve with remaining glaze & enjoy!
