Serves 6

  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  1. Mix together the seasonings : sage, salt, pepper and garlic, and rub over the tenderloin.
  2. Place 1/2 cup water in slow cooker, followed by the tenderloin, and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
  3. 1 hour before the roast is finished, mix together the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan : brown sugar, cornstarch, balsamic vinegar, water, and soy sauce.
  4. Heat over medium and stir until mixture thickens, about 4 minutes.
  5. Brush roast with glaze 2 or 3 times during the last hour of cooking. (For a more caramelized crust, remove from crock pot and place on aluminum lined sheet pan, glaze, and set under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, until bubbly and caramelized. Repeat 2 to 3 more times until desired crust is achieved.)
  6. Serve with remaining glaze on the side.

I cooked it on low for about 4 and a half hours and then broiled for about 30 mins glazing it every 4 mins it was perfect meat was unbelievably tender and glaze was just the right thick crunch. I nade with rice but next time im going to make my artichoke mashed potatoes with it. Yummmm.

I just did what Belina suggested. Seems to be ok. The tenderloin is a little gamey and I wonder if that's due to the speed? I haven't made it slow so can't confirm.

What are your thoughts on speeding up the slow cooker time to 4 hours?
