Sweet Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin

This recipe is easily doubled – increase all the amounts (for the pork or the glaze) if making a larger roast.


  2 pound boneless pork loin roast, trimmed of large fat pockets
  1 teaspoon ground sage
  1/2 teaspoon salt
  1/2 teaspoon pepper
  1 clove garlic, finely minced or crushed
  1/2 cup water

  1/2 cup brown sugar, light or dark
  1 tablespoon cornstarch
  1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  1/2 cup water
  2 tablespoons soy sauce


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 6-8 hours. Near the end of the cooking time for the roast, combine the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce 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.
