SLOW COOKER BROWN SUGAR AND BALSAMIC GLAZED PORK TENDERLOIN — This slow cooker pork tenderloin is one of the earlier recipes I posted here at Let’s Dish, and it’s definitely been one of the most popular. Don’t just take my word for what a great recipe it is. Read the comments and I think you’ll be convinced to try it.
We eat a lot of pork tenderloin at our house. It’s just so easy to prepare, and there are so many ways to prepare it. But this is hands-down, without a doubt, my family’s favorite way to enjoy pork tenderloin.
Besides the great taste, I love it because it’s so easy. I also love the glaze. A lot. In fact, you could just skip the pork and eat the glaze with a spoon!
I make this pork tenderloin often for Sunday dinner. It’s a snap to throw the roast into a slow cooker before we head to church.
When we get home, all I have to do is whip up the glaze and dinner is served. And I love that it’s nice enough to for company!
With a side of roasted or mashed potatoes and some steamed veggies, this is an easy, nutritious meal that the whole family will love.Print
