A Crockpot Kind of Night: Brown Sugar & Balsamic Glazed Pork

I usually babysit on Thursdays, (although it's not even fair that I get paid to cuddle with a sweet baby girl or play cars with an awesome 3 year old) so I like to cook dinner in the crockpot on those nights.
This recipe required very minimal/easy morning prep and before serving it only needs a quick glaze.

Brown Sugar & Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin
1 (2 pound) boneless pork tenderloin (or regular pork loin)
1 teaspoon ground sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 cup water

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch (I needed a touch more in order to thicken)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce

Combine sage, salt, pepper and garlic. Rub over roast. Place in slow cooker with 1/2 cup water. 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.
Recipe: Let's Dish

I added some squash-zucchini-onions on the side and called it dinner!
