Balsamic and Brown Sugar Glazed Pork

This recipe turned out so great I couldn't wait to share it. It was so easy and my pickiest eater loved it! It will now become a regular meal in our home. I already have a few ideas to tweak it up a notch.

Pork Roast (2-3lbs)

1Tsp Sage or Poultry Seasoning will work as well

1/2 Tsp Salt

1 heaping Tbsp of  Garlic (crushed or minced)

1/2 Tsp Pepper (if using the Poultry Seasoning leave it out its already in the Seasoning)
1/2 -3/4 cup of water

Mix your Sage, Salt, Pepper and Garlic all together and rub all over the entire pork roast. Place it in your crock pot and water cook it on high for about 5hrs. Mix up the Glaze (recipe below) and add a nice amount 3-4 times over the top of the roast 3-4 times during the last hour of cooking. I simply kept it in a coffee cup next to my crock pot after I made it. Reserve a half cup or so to pour over before serving.


1/2 cup of water

1Tbsp of  Cornstarch

1/4 cup of Balsamic Vinegar

1/2 cup of Brown Sugar

3 Tbsps of Soy Sauce

Combine all ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan and cook it at a medium temp until it becomes a little thick.

As I mentioned in the beginning I was thinking on tweaking this a little. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out and what it was going to taste like. After eating it I thought it would have been great to add a mixture of different vegetables with it and serve it over rice. I would want to use some veggies that would be a little crisp such as snow peas in the pod and perhaps some broccoli.You could even pull the pork then add the sauce and serve on sandwiches. I think the possibilities with this recipe are almost endless. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did!
