Ingredients

  • 2 lbs Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Sage
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Minced Garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Corn Starch
  • ¼ cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon Soy Sauce

Directions

  1. For easy clean up spray inside of crockpot with non-stick cooking spray or use a crockpot liner. Add ¼ cup water to the crock.
  2. Heat olive oil in frying pan over medium high heat.
  3. While oil is heating, in a flat, rectangular pan or dish, mix sage, salt, pepper and garlic.
  4. Place pork tenderloin carefully into the hot pan and turn frequently to brown on all sides.
  5. Turn off heat and remove pork, placing it in the crock.
  6. Cover; Cook on low 6-8 hours.
  7. 15 minutes before pork is finished, mix brown sugar, corn starch, balsamic vinegar and soy sauce in a small sauce pan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens; 3-5 minutes.
  8. Remove pork from Crockpot and place on a foil lined baking sheet. Brush with the glaze and place under the broiler 1-2 minutes, until glaze is bubbly. Brush with glaze 2 or 3 more times, 1-2 minutes apart until desired broil occurs.
  9. Slice and serve with remaining glaze.
