Slow Cooked Sweet Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin

makes 6-8 servings


2 lbs boneless center cut pork tenderloin
1 T ground sage
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1/2 C water

1/2 C dark brown sugar
1 T cornstarch
1/4 C balsamic vinegar
1/2 C water
2 T soy sauce

1. Lay raw tenderloin out on a cutting board. In a small bowl, combine sage, salt & pepper, and garlic. Rub every last bit of the mixture all over the tenderloin’s surface. Place the rubbed meat in your slow cooker and pour 1/2 C water over tenderloin. Cover with the lid, and slow cook for 6-8 hours on low.
2. With about 10 minutes left in the cooking time, combine all glaze ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil, immediately lower to a simmer until thickened. Whisk occasionally.
3. With two forks, shred tenderloin (it should fall apart when you touch it). Serve with glaze drizzled over the surface.
