Slow Cooker Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Pork Loin

Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Pork Loin

 

Pinit

This week, I decided to go easy on the grocery bill and use up some of the meat in our freezer.  I found a 2 pound pork loin (not a tenderloin, like I am used to making), so I wanted to use ingredients I had on hand to fix it up.  The result was a tasty, if a little dry, pork loin that Mister Spice and I ate on for a few days.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 lb pork loin (a well-marbled one may turn out a little more moist than my lean one did!)
  • 1 and 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Recipe Instructions:

Sprinkle pork loin with salt and pepper, then prick all over with a fork.  In a bowl, mix garlic, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, and cinnamon, then rub all over pork loin.  Place in slow cooker on low for 7-8 hours.  Serve sliced or shredded; sprinkle with a little bit of cinnamon if desired.

Mister Spice and I give this 3 out of 5 stars…it got a 5 for taste but it was a little dry.  I don’t know if it’s because it was so lean, or if pork loins in general just don’t cook up and turn out as juicy as a tenderloin.

  1. I like the spices you used here, especially the addition of cinnamon.

  2. Wow wow wow this sounds amazing! I love a good slow cooked pork joint. Ours have come out lovely and juicy so far, not sure what cut we get though.

    I’ll Have to try out the rub/spice mix minus the cinnamon as my other half hates it though :(

  3. Thank you! It really is quite tasty…sorry the pictures aren’t very pretty, though!

    • Finally got round to making it… just put it in the slow cooker, my hands stink of garlic now though ha ha… the only downside of the recipe I would say.
      I left out the cinnamon as previously explained but put in some smoked paprika and some lime juice as well as had a lime laying around. Will report back in approx 9 hours :)
