Slow Cooker Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Tenderloin

Balsamic Pork


This pork tenderloin is a re-shoot from a previous post.  It should also be said that it is pretty much my favorite pork tenderloin recipe…EVER!  The pork is super moist and tender, and the thick glaze is sweet and tangy.  It’s also incredibly easy!

Recipe Ingredients

For the tenderloin:

  • 1 (2lb) boneless pork tenderloin, well-marbled
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup water

For brown sugar and balsamic glaze:

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

 Recipe Directions:

Sprinkle tenderloin with salt, pepper, and cover with garlic.  Place in slow cooker on low for 6-8 hours.  When it’s done, it’ll look a little something like this:

Prepare the glaze by heating vinegar, water, and soy sauce in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.  Whisk together corn starch and brown sugar in a bowl, and add gradually to saucepan, whisking quickly to avoid lumps.  Whisk continuously for several minutes until sauce thickens.  Brush tenderloin with glaze and turn the slow cooker setting to warm.

Cover until ready to serve, then brush with remaining glaze.  The best way to serve this is to shred it up.  You could certainly make a sandwich out of it as well.

It is just so easy and tasty!  It does make an awful lot for two people, so I either save the rest for leftover sandwiches or freeze it.  Either way, this recipe earns an easy 5/5 herbs!
