Balsamic Slow Cooker Pork Loin


3 ½-4 pound pork loin (trimmed of fat with just a little left for flavor)

2 tablespoons olive oil


1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/3 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons molasses

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 cup chicken broth

4 garlic cloves minced

1 teaspoon  rosemary 

1 teaspoon  paprika

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon dry Italian herbs

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon black pepper


Pat dry the loin using paper towels. Next, trim any fat off the loin.

Place a large skillet, over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil ( heat up the olive oil)  add the loin to it. Sear it for 3-4 minutes on each side.

In a large measuring cup or bowl combine all the sauce ingredients and mix well

Add pork to slow cooker, pour sauce over and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 7-8 hours

Once you take the pork out of the slow cooker let it rest for about 10 minutes then slice it up

It's warm this week so a good time to bring out the crockpot. Meat prices are SO high. I got this pork loin on sale for 1.98 a pound.

Came out good and Gabe said it really smelt good while cooking. It had LOTS of liquid, which was thin. Took some out and thicken it with a cornstarch  mixture. The liquid from the pot mixed with the cornstarch mixture made a nice gravy.

    1. Hi Elaine- I had a bottle from Trader Joes. I don't use balsamic that often but this recipe was really good. Hope you have been well

  3. I've been doing great. We are in Arizona now, sold the house in North Dakota.

    I bought a couple brands of balsamic but so 9ver powering.
