I present to you my very favorite dinner! Seriously, there are a great many meals that I love, but this my friends, is the best. I even chose this for my Mother's Day meal! My husband, Jason, is a beef kind of guy. He will pick beef any day, over the best ever pork meal. But even he loved this! Every last piece of roast was devoured. And to add to its appeal, the pork is cooked in the slow cooker! Easy and delicious! I encourage you to make this..and soon!
Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin
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 of garlic, finely minced
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 minced garlic. Rub the spices all over the roast and place it in the slow cooker. Pour 1/2 cup water into the slow cooker. 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. Reduce the heat and let the mixture simmer, stirring occasionally, until it thickens. Remove the pork from the slow cooker and shred. Place on a platter or plate and drizzle the glaze over the pork. Serve.
