Serves 6

  • 2 pounds Pork Tenderloin
  • 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

  2. Mix together the seasonings: sage, salt, pepper and garlic, and rub over the tenderloin.
  3. Place ½ cup water in slow cooker.
  4. Place tenderloin in slow cooker.
  5. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  6. 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.
  7. Heat over medium and stir until mixture thickens, about 4 minutes.

I cooked it 6 hours in the slow cooker. Then put it in glass baking dish.. glazed it, transferred it to the oven for 10 minutes, then i turned the broiler on low for 15 minutes and glazed it ever 3 minutes.. DELISH!!!!!!

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?
