because you asked! balsamic bbq pork loin

i'm kind of known around here for my love of pork and my pulled pork bbq sandwiches, but the other day i didn't have time for my pulled pork sandwiches but  really wanted  barbequed pork. so i sifted through some of my mom's old recipes and i found this recipe for balsamic pork roast, it's similar to a roasted balsamic chicken recipe i do all the time.  so with minimal time before heading out of the house on sunday i figured i'd give it a try. it was soooo good the family said it needs to become one of our regular favorite dinners! we have quite a few of those around here. 

                                                         balsamic bbq pork loin

1 (2 pound) boneless pork roast
1 teaspoon ground sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 cup chicken/veg/beef stock (your choice water/beer would work too)
1 tablespoon of olive oil
bbq sauce
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. Rub over roast. heat olive oil in pan, make sure it's nice and hot to get a good sear on the meat. this helps deepen the flavor. place pork roast in pan and sear each side, when done searing meat, remove and put in slow cooker and deglaze pan with liquid, then pour over roast. spread garlic on top of roast and cover.
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.
