Ingredients

  • 4 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • ¾ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic. minced
  • 2 teaspoons sage
Balsamic glaze
  • 1¼ cups brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch, plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 Tablespoons soy sauce

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl combine salt, pepper, garlic, and sage to make a paste.
  2. Rub this mixture all over the tenderloin.
  3. In a very large skillet, heat ¼ cup olive oil to medium high heat and place the tenderlion in the skillet. (If my tenderlion is too long, I will cut it in half.)
  4. Brown each side for 2 minutes. (I do four sides, rolling the tenderloin)
  5. Spray the bottom and sides of the slow cooker with vegetable spray and place tenderloin inside.
  6. Cook tenderloin on high for four hours.

An hour before the tenderloin is done cooking make the glaze.

  1. In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, cornstarch, balsamic vinegar, water and soy sauce. Heat over medium heat for about 4 minutes until sauce thickens.
  2. When the tenderloin is cooked, remove from heat and place on a serving platter.
  3. Slice tenderloin in your desired thickness.
  4. Spoon the glaze over the top. I place the remaining glaze on the table in a serving dish for those who would like extra. (Believe me it is so good, you will want to drown your pork in it.)
