Slow Cooker Brown Sugar and Balsamic-Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Recipe modified by Strive for Wellness®

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8 hours

Servings: 6


1 teaspoon ground sage
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 garlic clove, crushed
½ cup water
2 pounds pork tenderloin
½ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
½ cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Mix together the seasonings: sage, salt, pepper and garlic.
  2. Place 1/2 cup water in slow cooker, followed by the tenderloin, and sprinkle seasonings over tenderloin. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
  3. One hour before the roast is finished, mix together the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan: brown sugar, cornstarch, balsamic vinegar, water and soy sauce.
  4. Heat over medium and stir until mixture thickens, about 4 minutes.
  5. Brush roast with glaze 2 or 3 times during the last hour of cooking. (For a more caramelized crust, remove from crock pot and place on aluminum lined sheet pan, glaze, and set under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes, until bubbly and caramelized. Repeat 2 to 3 more times until desired crust is achieved.)
  6. Serve with remaining glaze on the side.
