This glazed pork tenderloin has the flavors of soy sauce, honey, brown sugar and balsamic – it’s Sunday supper worthy, but bakes up in about an hour, so it’s able to make weeknight meals special!
You all weren’t going to see this one until tomorrow, but I was so excited with it, it’s coming a day early! This pork tenderloin was what was for dinner here last night. I had picked up a pork tenderloin at the store, and had every intention of making a crock pot recipe that I had pinned for a while. That was until I forgot to take the tenderloin out of the freezer until 9 AM yesterday.
I decided to make something up of my own, and bake it in the oven in my roaster. Turned out, it was a great idea, because my family went CRAZY for it!
You could totally make this in the crock pot, and I will add that to the notes, but it baked in an hour, and it turned out so tender! This recipe is a keeper!

Let’s get to it!
- 3 pound boneless Pork Tenderloin Roast + 1/4 cup water
- For the Rub:
- 1 teaspoon sage
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- For the Glaze:
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
- 2-3 Tablespoons honey
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 heaping Tablespoons corn starch
Preheat oven to 325 degrees, spray a roaster with non-stick cooking spray.
Rinse pork tenderloin in cold water. Mix ingredients for rub together, and rub all over the pork tenderloin. Place in roaster with 1/4 cup water in the bottom of the pan. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes to one hour (pork tenderloin will bake for 15-20 minutes per pound at 325 degrees to be cooked completely)
When roast is cooked to 160 degrees heat ingredients for glaze in a saucepan until thickened. Brush over roast, and change oven to "broil" on high, broil the glaze over the roast for about 5 minutes to caramelize it.
Remove and slice.
This could be made in the crock pot, Place about 1/2 cup water in the crock pot, place rubbed pork loin in crock pot and cover. Cook on low 8 hours. Two options for glaze: one hour before you are ready to serve, add glaze to roast in crock pot. OR remove loin from crock pot, place on a baking sheet and brush roast with glaze, pop under the broiler for 5 minutes.
