Brown Sugar & Balsamic Pork Roast

I happened upon this recipe thanks to the power of Google.  I love balsamic vinegar, and several months ago I got a couple of bottles nearly free when I combined sale prices and coupons.  With so much vinegar in the cabinet, I set out to find a new way to use it.  Google didn’t let me down when it led me to this recipe!

We’ve only had this twice, but it was a quick favorite!  Both times my husband prepared it while I was getting ready for the day.  It’s fast and easy to put together, and you get a dish suitable for company.  I couldn’t ask for anything more!

Brown Sugar & Balsamic Pork Roast

A family favorite, suitable for guests!


  • 1 (2-pound) boneless pork loin
  • 1 teaspoon ground dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Mix together sage, salt, pepper, and garlic.
  2. Rub the mixture over the pork. Add it to the slow cooker and pour 1/2 cup water in the bottom of the slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
  3. One hour before the pork is cooked, put the brown sugar, cornstarch, balsamic, water, and soy sauce in a sauce pan. Bring the mixture to a bubble over medium heat. It will get thick.
  4. Pour half of the glaze over the pork. Reserve the rest to serve alongside.
  5. Cook the pork for another hour.
  6. Shred the pork with a fork. It will fall apart, it is so tender.
  7. Serve with the remaining glaze.


Yield: Serves 4-6.
