Slow Cooker Balsamic Pork

Tonight’s dinner was fantastic and easy due to some simple preparation before I left for class. The sweet and tangy sauce that glazes the tender pork made this meal.

Slow Cooker Balsamic Pork

  • 1 small boneless pork loin (2 lb)
  • 1 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 glove of garlic, crushed…You can also just use a small teaspoon of garlic powder.
  • 1/2 cup of water

Combine the spices and sprinkle over the pork, rub them into the meat. Cover with water in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours.

When the pork has cooked 5 hours or so, you need to make the glaze.

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup of water

Combine these ingredients and heat in a saucepan or a microwavable bowl. Stir and simmer lightly until thick, like a glaze.

Set the glaze aside and pull the pork until shredded with two forks. Combine the glaze with the pork and continue cooking on low for one more hour.

I served my pork alongside a green leaf salad with almonds and citrus vinaigrette. I also had a slice of buttered toast and a serving of Cabot 75% reduced fat cheese.

In other news…

I cleaned the apartment! It is sparkling and tidy.

  2. I love pork in the slow cooker, but this looks even better than mine. I often just use bbq sauce (boring), but this sounds yum!

    And on behalf of the farm family owners of Cabot, thanks for the mention!
