Sweet Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin


2 pound boneless pork loin roast, trimmed of large fat pockets
1 teaspoon ground sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, finely minced or crushed
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar, light or dark
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce

In a small bowl, combine the sage, salt, pepper and garlic. Rub the spices all over the roast. Sear each side of the roast in a hot dutch oven with oil in it. Place the pork roast in the dutch oven and pour in the 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook at 300 for 2-3 hours. Near the end of the cooking time for the roast, combine the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce and let the mixture simmer, stirring occasionally, until it thickens.

Remove the pork from the Dutch oven, shred and place on a platter or plate. Drizzle the glaze over the pork and serve.

The original recipe said to stick it in the crock pot for 6hours. You could do that but I think crock pot stuff gets a little sad and mushy. That's why I did it like this. It turned out really good.
