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.
