Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin

The continuation of my diet and leftover ingredients from this flank steak recipe,  called for making this brown sugar and balsamic glazed pork tenderloin slow-cooker recipe (found here and here).  Although we simply just ate the tender meat with a side of asparagus, we decided it would be a great addition for tacos, pulled pork sandwiches, or salads.

Ingredients:

for the crock-pot:
1 (2 pound) boneless pork tenderloin
1 tsp ground rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 cup water

for the glaze:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp soy sauce

Directions:

In a small bowl, combine rosemary, salt, pepper, and garlic; rub over pork. Place in a slow cooker with 1/2 cup water. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. About 1 hour before roast is done, combine ingredients for glaze in a small sauce pan. Heat and stir until mixture thickens. Brush roast with glaze 2 or 3 times during the last hour of cooking. Serve with remaining glaze on the side.
