Pork Tenderloin with Sweet Glaze

My friend, Kristen, told me about this crazy yummy pork recipe posted on the blog C&C Marriage Factory. It was beyond simple to make (crock pot recipes are the best!). The end result was a moist, flavorful (thanks to the glaze!) tenderloin that was easily shredded with a fork. I served the pork with crusty bread and shredded brussel sprouts with bacon & walnuts (click for that recipe).  I will definitely make this again for a crowd. Serve on rolls for a delicious pulled pork sandwich!

1 (2 pound) boneless pork tenderloin (or regular pork loin)
1 teaspoon ground sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Combine sage, salt, pepper and garlic. Rub over roast. Place in 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 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.
