Pork Loin Recipe

 Pork loin with Brown Sugar and Balsamic glaze 

today I'm making pork loin with a brown sugar and balsamic glaze. For making this you can use instant pot but a crock pot works just as well. I found this recipe years ago on Pinterest,  I made it so many times through the years, it's awesome.

So if you're trying to find something to make for dinner and maybe you're in a rut, you feel like you make the same things over and over and over again. Try this recipe. I think you're really going to like it and you're probably going to add it to the list of things that you make regularly.


Here's what you're going to need, pork loin or tenderloin, either one works for this recipe. I tend to go with pork loin because it has a little fat on it and I just think it comes out a little juicier when it Cooks in its own fat, but again, either one is fine. Delete some water, some salt and pepper, some coarsely chopped onion and garlic. Then for the glaze. You'll need balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, corn, starch and brown sugar. 

pork loin

1/4 to 1/2 an onion, coarsely chopped

salt & pepper to taste

3-4 fresh garlic cloves

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp. soy sauce

1 Tbsp. corn starch

To start.  rinse off the pork loin and patted It dry. and go ahead and season it. 

Heat a frying pan with a little bit of olive oil and this is just so the pork loin gets that brown color on all sides to keep the juices locked in. Meanwhile, turn on the crockpot too low and put all the chopped onion in there. Once the pork loin is browned on all sides. place it over the onions in the Crock-Pot,  add half a cup of water and put a few cloves of garlic on top and cover it up. And that's it. 

It needs to cook on low heat for 5 to 6 hours so you can get on with the rest of your day and then come back later and make that glaze.

The glaze 

After about five hours. And now it's time to make the glaze.

Combine brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and corn starch in small pan and whisk it together, over the stove, for a few minutes. in the glaze is thickened 

Now pour about half of that glaze over the pork for the final hour of cooking and reserve the rest for later. Cooking time will depend onThe pork loin. You'll know It's ready. When the meat falls apart easily.

Put it in a dish and Pour the remaining glaze on top and serve it

 It's a beautiful recipe. it smells heavenly. it can be served with roasted potatoes and green beans for dinner, it's delicious.

 For any leftover, you can make sandwiches out of it later on in the week. it can even be use for tacos. It's just really wonderful. I think you're really going to like this.
