Number of Servings: 6


    2 lbs pork tenderloin
    1 tsp ground sage
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 pepper
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 tbs cornstarch
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    1/2 cup water
    2 tbs soy sauce


I ended up having to make some extra glaze because I felt like it was a bit dry with the amount recommended.


Mix together the seasonings: sage, salt, pepper, and garlic.

Run over tenderloin. Place 1/2 cup water in slow cooker and add tenderloin.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

One hour before the roast is finished, mix together the ingredients for the glaze in a small sauce pan: brown sugar, cornstarch, water, soy sauce.

Heat over medium heat until glaze thickens; about four minutes.

Brush roast with glaze 2 or 3 times during the last hour of cooking. For a more caramelized crust, remove from crockpot and place on an aluminum lined sheet pan, glaze, and set under broiler for 1-2 minutes until bubbly and caramelized.

Serve with remaining glaze on the side.

  • Is the balsamic vinegar part of the glaze? I don't see it mentioned in the directions. - 12/12/14

  • Good
    I cooked in my slow cooker for the recommended period, but found that it was overdone. I suspect cooking time will vary according to what type of slow cooker you have. Flavour is like that of a sweet-and-sour sauce. - 11/22/14

  • Very Good
    Pretty tasty! My tenderloin ended up a bit dry as well, so the doubling of the glaze worked wonderfully. - 6/1/14
