I found this fantastic recipe at C+C Marriage Factory, a great little blog with gorgeous photos and even better recipes. This is the first that I have tried of hers but I anticipate many in the future. I served them the Rosemary Olive Oil Buns posted yesterday. It was a fantastic meal!

Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin

  • 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 (I had to pour off some extra liquid before this step). Serve with remaining glaze on the side.
