Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloins

by Shugary Sweets

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 6 hours

Ingredients (serves 6-8)

2 pork tenderloins (about 3lbs total)

2 tsp ground sage

1 tsp salt

3 cloves garlic, pressed

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1 cup water, divided

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 Tbsp corn starch

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp soy sauce

Instructions

In large crockpot, lay tenderloins on bottom. Rub sage, salt and pepper on top. Pour 1/2 cup water in bottom of pot and add the pressed garlic. Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours.

In small microwave safe bowl, mix 1/2 cup water with brown sugar, cornstarch, balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Heat for 1 minute, whisk and heat an additional minute. Mixture should be thickened. Pour half of mixture over pork tenderloins and continue cooking an additional hour (or two).

With remaining glaze, you can keep it until ready to serve then pour warmed glaze over tenderloins, shred and enjoy. Or, reserve about 1/4 cup of glaze to use in the Cherry Tomato Salad (see below), and brush remaining on tenderloins before serving.

**NOTE** If using glaze from crockpot pork tenderloin recipe, whisk olive oil into prepared glaze, pour over veggies and herbs. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or more until ready to eat!
