Ingredients

    For the pork:
    2 pound pork loin roast, trimmed of large fat pockets
    1 t ground sage
    1/2 t salt
    1/2 t pepper
    1 clove garlic finely minced or crushed
    1/2 c water

    1 T cornstarch
    1/4 c balsamic vinegar

Directions

In a small bowl, combine sage, salt, pepper and garlic. Rub the spices all over the roast. Place the pork roast in the slow cooker and pour in the 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Near the end of the cooking time for the roast, combine the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and let the mixture simmer, stirring occasionally, until it thickens.

Remove the pork from the slow cooker, shred and place on a platter or plate. Drizzle the glaze over the pork and serve. Good over rice (not included in nutritional information)

  • This was really good! The pork was falling apart after 6 hours, tender & still juicy. I love the sauce! I will be making this again. - 5/5/14

  • This is super yummy and so easy to make! I've made it twice so far. The pork was very easy to shred, it was practically falling apart by itself. I loved it exactly how the recipe is written. Absolutely awesome! - 7/14/13
