Crock-Pot Brown Sugar & Balsamic–Glazed Pork Tenderloin

by 247tasty

This is one of those crockpot recipes that I love. The roast is tender, perfectly cooked, and the brown sugar and balsamic glaze is thick, sweet-salty, you could put it on anything! I am crazy with crockpot because it’s like opening a gift, you’ll be surprised every time a dish comes out of it. This pork tenderloin takes time to cook but that’s a great deal for a busy mom like me. I get to prepare dinner and do my everyday mommy duties at the same time. And this beauty is decent enough to serve on gatherings, the most requested dish actually.


1 teaspoon of ground sage
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/2 cup of water
2 pounds pork tenderloin
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of cornstarch
1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup of water
2 tablespoons of soy sauce

How to make Crock-Pot Brown Sugar & Balsamic–Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Step 1: Mix the sage, salt, pepper, and garlic. Then rub it over the tenderloin.

Step 2: In a slow cooker, place a half cup of water, then put in the tenderloin and cook for 6 to 8 hours on low.

Step 3: Meanwhile, for the glaze, mix the brown sugar, cornstarch, balsamic vinegar, water, and soy sauce in a small saucepan. Heat for about 4 minutes over medium heat while stirring continuously until the mixture thickened.

Step 4: On the last hour of cooking the tenderloin, brush the roast with glaze 2 to 3 times.

Step 5: If you want to have a more caramelized crust, remove the roast from the crockpot, place it on the aluminum lined sheet pan, and glaze again before setting under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes until bubbly and caramelized. Repeat the same process 2 to 3 times until you achieve your desired crust.

Step 6: Serve the roast with the remaining glaze on the side and enjoy!
