I keep drooling over this link on pinterest thinking that surely I can convince my family to eat it even though it might be a hard sell with the soy sauce in it. So, I caved and made it.
And it was devoured. Killed. Loved. Well, except for Boo because he was in a bad mood.
I mixed together a teaspoon of sage, paprika, 3 garlic cloves minced, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.
When the pork loin had cooked for at least six hours, I began making the glaze. I mixed together 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar, 1/2 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce.
I brushed the glaze on the pork loin 3-4 times over the next hour.
I removed it from the crock pot and gently sliced the loin and pulled the meat apart. It fell apart it was so moist.
