Crockpot Brown Sugar Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin Roast

I love a good crockpot recipe that takes hardly any prep, but tastes like I spent hours making it.


This is one of those recipes.  I was a bit hesitant because some things with balsamic can be very overpowering.  This is not.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pound pork loin roast
  • 1 tsp ground sage
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed (I used minced garlic)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 TBSP cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce

Directions:

  1. Mix together sage, salt, pepper, and garlic.
  2. Rub seasonings on the pork.
  3. Place 1/2 cup water in the crockpot and then place the pork in the crockpot.
  4. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  5. 1 hour before the roast is done, mix together the brown sugar, cornstarch, vinegar, water, and soy sauce in a small sauce pan.
  6. Heat glaze over medium heat until it has thickened.
  7. Brush the roast with the glaze 2-3 times during the last hour of cook time.
  8. Serve the remaining glaze with the pork on the side.

We’ve had this once with mashed potatoes and in my opinion, it was perfect.  The glaze is the perfect blend of sweet and savory and is delicious over the pork and potatoes.


The original recipe gives instructions to get a more caramelized crust by putting it under the broiler.  I didn’t do this and it was still delicious.

This is a great recipe to cook when you have guests coming over and you want to impress them, yet you don’t want to make a mess in your kitchen.

    That glaze sounds very good. I am going to try that for sure! Pretty sure what ya have there is a loin though…tenderloins are quite small…maybe a pound each.
