Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Roast

  • Author: One Lovely Life, adapted from C+C Marriage Factory
  • Yield: 6-8 1x



For the pork roast:

  • 1 (2-3lb) pork loin roast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2c water

For the glaze:

  • 1/2c brown sugar
  • 1/2c water
  • 1/4c balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce*
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch


For the roast:

  1. Place roast in a slow cooker. Rub with salt, thyme, garlic powder, and pepper. Add 1/2c water around the edges (so you don’t pour off the rub you just put on the pork). Cook on low 6-8 hours, or until pull-apart tender. During the last 30 minutes or so of cooking, prepare glaze.

For the glaze:

  1. Combine brown sugar, water, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce (or tamari, if using), and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Stir over medium heat until glaze thickens. Brush over roast 2-3 times during the last 30-minutes or so of the cook time. Serve with remaining glaze.
