I told you last month how I’ve been cooking most Sunday dinners using a slow cooker. It’s makes dinner prep easy and my Sundays are more relaxing. Even better is when it’s a freezer cooking recipe like our Slow Cooker Beef Stew.
The recipe in this post is not a freezer cooking recipe. But, it is simple to prepare with tasty results.
Sweet Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin Recipe
- 2 pound boneless pork tenderloin NOTE: I use two (2) 1 lb boneless pork tenderloins
- 1/2 cup water
- For Dry Rub
1 teaspoon ground sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed (or 1 tsp dried minced garlic)
- For Glaze
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup water
Combine and mix together sage, salt, pepper and garlic. Rub over tenderloin. Place 1/2 cup water in slow cooker and then pork tenderloin. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. NOTE: It usually takes 6 hours on low for tenderloin to cook in my slow cooker – cooking time will vary based on your slow cooker.
About 1 hour before tenderloin is done, combine ingredients for glaze (brown sugar, cornstarch, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and water) in small sauce pan. Heat and stir until mixture starts to thicken slightly. Brush glaze on pork tenderloin 2 or 3 times during the last hour of cooking.
You could pour the rest of glaze on top of the tenderloin. We choose to serve the remaining glaze on the side. We LOVE the glaze!
