When I find Pork loin on sale, I stock up on it. Well, this is one of my all time favorite ways of making it.

A dear friend of mine, no longer with us, gave me this recipe years ago..I have made it so many times I have it memorized. I changed it of course to suit our taste.

The garlic permeates the meat, and the glaze is fantastic.



I hope you try it, and enjoy it as much as we do..

Ingredients

1
( 2 1/2 - 3 ) pound pork tenderloin, i used pork tenderloin end
1/2 tsp
pepper
1 tsp
cumin, dried
1 - 2 tsp
rosemary, dried
1/2 tsp
paprika, i use smoked
1/2 - 1 tsp
accent flavor enhancer or salt
5 - 6 clove
garlic, whole ( mince one for the top of loin)

GLAZE

1/4 c
balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp
soy sauce
1/2 c
brown sugar
1 tsp
dry mustard
1/2 c
water
1 Tbsp
corn starch

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Rinse pork loin and dry.

Cut about 4 - 5 slits on top of the loin; about 1 1/2 inches deep. Stuff a clove of garlic in each slit.
2
In a small bowl; mix the seasonings and minced garlic. Rub the pork well with the spice mix.

It is now ready to go into the slow cooker.
3
Lay the pork loin inside the slow cooker. Pour a small amount of water, just enough to cover the bottom of the crock. Make sure not to wash the seasoning from the meat in the process.
4
Cook on high setting for an hour. Then turn down to low, cook for 3 -4 hours longer. Or cook on low for 5 - 6 hours. My low setting gets pretty hot. ( Mine took a total of 1 hour on high, and 3 hours on low). So, keep checking when basting for doneness.

Baste the loin every half hour or so, with the glaze.
5
When meat is finished, remove it from the slow cooker, and let it rest for 5 minutes or so. Slice and plate, and serve with remaining glaze.
6
Making the glaze:

Mix all of the ingredients in a small saucepan; over medium heat, stirring frequently so the sauce does not burn.

When sauce comes to a simmer..stir until thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.

Enjoy! Your house will smell wonderful!
