Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin


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


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

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

  3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours in crockpot or 35 minutes in Instant Pot.

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

  5. Heat over medium and stir until mixture thickens about 4 minutes.

  6. 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 aluminum lined sheet pan, glaze, and set under broiler for 1-2 minutes until bubbly and caramelized. Repeat 2 to 3 more times until desired crust is achieved.)

  7. Serve with remaining glaze on the side and grilled or steamed veggies along with an optional carb and a healthy fat.
