I am so glad this is FRIDAY!!!! I am in the mood for comfy clothes, slow cooker meal, and relaxation before the weekend. I decided to make a comfort food that anyone would hopefully love! This pork loin w/ sweet glaze is a great comfort food for anyone. This meal is absolutely delicious…especially since the sauce makes this dish! I changed this recipe up a little bit and used Turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw) rather than brown sugar. The turbinado sugar gave this dish a distinct flavor. Josh and I enjoyed this meal with cream cheese corn and a spring mix salad. I sure hope you enjoy it and as always…feedback is greatly appreciated!
Makes: 4-6 servings
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 boneless pork loin roast, 4-6 pounds
2 cloves garlic, halved (rub on pork loin)
1 1/2 cups turbinado sugar (Sugar in the Raw)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Line your slow cooker with a slow cooker liner or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Turn slow cooker on LOW. Meanwhile, trim excess fat off of pork loin. I like to leave a little fat, it gives great flavor as well. Prick the pork loin all over with a fork or knife. Place in the bottom of the slow cooker (fat side up) and sprinkle with salt and black pepper….
In a small bowl, combine dijon mustard, cinnamon, balsamic vinegar, and turbinado sugar mix until it becomes a dark paste…
Rub the dark paste all over the pork loin….Cover and cook on LOW for 7-8 hours (depends on your slow cooker).
Tremendous meal has finally been served….ENJOY!!
