Slow Cooker Balsamic Brown Sugar-Glazed Pork Tenderloin
In reality, the hands on time is 30 minutes or less. It starts with a simple pork massage consisting of garlic paste, sage, and some simple salt and pepper. Pop it into the crockpot. Swoon every time you walk back into the house from being gone for a while (the smell!).
After that, it's just a matter of preheating your broiler and brushing and turning the pork tenderloins a few times once you've lifted them from the slow cooker. The hardest part is convincing them not to fall apart until they've been properly glazed.
