Recipe: Crock pot pork loin with balsamic brown sugar drizzle

Written by on March 16, 2012 in Crock Pot, Recipes - 14 Comments

Gracious. I can’t decide which one I love more: my crock pot or Pinterest. Without both, I would not have been able to produce the best pork loin served in this casa in a while. Seriously sweet and savory and juicy and delicious and easy, y’all.

Easy crock pot pork loin

Crock Pot Pork Loin (adapted from the recipe from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe) Serves 6.



  • 2 pounds boneless pork loin
  • 1 tsp ground sage
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbs corn starch
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  1. Dump all of the ingredients for the pork in the crock pot.
  2. Cook on high for four hours.
  3. When the pork is almost finished cooking, combine all of the glaze ingredients in a sauce pan.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce and let simmer.
  5. Stir occasionally until it thickens.
  6. Remove the pork from the crock pot and shred.
  7. Drizzle the glaze over the pork.

    I found your recipe through Pinterest and made it for my husband’s visiting family last night, doubling everything as I had a 4.5 lb pork loin (10 hours on low worked). Everyone loved it and my husband is planning pulled pork sandwiches for later this week. Thank you.

      Thank you so much for letting me know. It really is one of my favorite recipes, and I’m glad you enjoyed it, too!

    This looks delicious. I am curious. How would you serve this, besides as a pulled pork sandwich or the like? Serve it over rice or noodles? And what kind of sides would accompany this? Thank you in advance.

      I serve it with sides like broccoli or potatoes. I’ve also served it over a green salad with seasonal veggies. I’ve never put it on a sandwich, but I’m sure it would be delicious to do that as well.
