Crockpot Brown Sugar Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin Recipe

pork tenderloin recipe

It has been forever since I shared a recipe on the blog! This one was so good I had to share! I have been experimenting a lot in the kitchen so maybe this will become a series? Tasty Thursday? What do you think?

On Sunday morning I woke up knowing that I wanted to be hands off, some Sundays I love to nurse different pots and spend my entire day in the kitchen. Other Sundays, (like this one) I just want to set it and forget it. So I took a look at my crockpot board on Pinterest and decided I’d be making some Pork Tenderloin for dinner!

Follow Nellie A.’s board Crockpot Yummy Recipe Times on Pinterest.

I love pork tenderloin because of the high protein/low fat content. You can pretty much make this with everything, rice, salad, mashed potatoes or even vegetables–it’s versatile like that! This tenderloin is glazed with a perfect tangy sweet glaze that is not too overpowering but so delicious!

I didn’t have all of the ingredients–the original recipe called for sage (so I put my favorite parsley instead) and a fresh garlic clove (I used 1/2 tsp minced garlic instead–I like garlic a lot).

The best part of the recipe for me was the actual browning of the pork…I love a crisp skin on meat, I would have browned it even more but my hubs might have objected a bit πŸ™‚

Tried it with chicken. It’s equally as delicious!! Plus, you have a little more control over how much food you want to make. Those pork loins can be huge!

Would love some healthy recipes that don’t taste eewwww. This looks so good. I normally put mines on the grill I tried it in the crockpot but it didn’t turn out nothing like this.

Nellie March 31, 2014 - 9:08 pm

i think the main difference is broiling it for a few minutes to get a nice crispy skin. So good!

I’ve never tried pork tenderloin, but these do look good. I have a feeling my husband would love them. I love having a crockpot especially for those busy days when you are too tired to care. lol

I use the crockpot for pork a lot…I have a recipe from House of Yumm I am planning on trying this weekend for teriyaki pork sliders. I also tend to make chili verde with pork in the crockpot. This recipe looks delicious!

It does! I have tried it in the oven and it takes forever and sometimes it dries it out!

That looks gooood Nellie! I’m not a big fan of pork, but this really looks like something I would want to try. I would love to use my crock pot a bit more, but the man doesn’t really meals from the crock pot…BOO…BOOO…BOOOO! I don’t use it as often as I would like!

Reply
Nellie March 31, 2014 - 9:14 pm

Once you broil the pork, it comes out so crispy that the man would never know! πŸ™‚

Thank you for the awesome recipe! My previous CrockPot attempt was so bad it was slightly embarrassing, but this pork tenderloin turned out to be delicious!! πŸ™‚ Also, I used chicken stock instead of water in the crockpot and it turned out great!

could you cook it IN the glaze instead of in just water in the crock pot?

I made this recipe last weekend, and it was delicious. I did do the broiler suggestion at the end of the recipe, removing the tenderloin from the crockpot, brushing the glaze on three of four times and putting it under the broiler for s minute or two each time. It made the glaze really shiny and crisp. The meat literally fell apart as I cut into it! Served it with a broccoli and apple gratin, roasted potatoes and a chopped salad. Apple crisp for dessert. Nice meal!

I made this recipe for my family and it was so delicious. I put the glaze on during the last hour in the crock pot and finished it up under the broiler adding more glaze. My family all loved this recipe and want the recipe for themselves to make. The leftover glaze is delicious to put over the meat as well. Definitely recommend this and this will become one of my favourite ways to cook pork tenderloin.
