Brown Sugar and Balsamic Pork

Picture from C+C Marriage Factory
A couple months ago there was a sale on pork roast. This is something we like, but don't buy often.. mainly because I don't have many recipes that aren't boring and plain pork roast. When I saw this on Pinterest (yes, again!), I decided to give it a shot. It was delicious... but definitely looked NOTHING like the picture on the original website (doesn't her picture above look amazing?)! The pictures actually came out kinda gross looking.. even though it tasted good! I think I didn't make enough glaze to pour over when I served it.

Serves: 4

  ~ 2 pound boneless pork loin
  ~ 1 teaspoon ground rosemary
  ~ 1/2 teaspoon salt
  ~ 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  ~ 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  ~ 1/2 cup water
  ~ 1/2 cup brown sugar
  ~ 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  ~ 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  ~ 1/2 cup water
  ~ 2 tablespoons soy sauce

1.  In a small bowl, combine rosemary, salt, pepper, and garlic. Rub over roast and place in Crockpot with 1/2 cup of water in the bottom. Cook on low for 6 hours.

2. About 75 minutes before the roast is done, combine the last 5 ingredients in a small saucepan on medium heat; stirring constantly until the mixture thickens. Brush glaze over roast 2 or 3 times in the last hour of cooking.

3. You should have some glaze leftover (you may need to make more than shown above.. it wasn't enough for me). Pour this over the sliced roast when you serve it.
