Sweet Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin

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!

  • 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.

  1. I just came across your recipe on Pinterest. I was looking for something different to do with one of the 4 pork tenderloins I picked up on sale. My family typically doesn’t eat pork because of the general blandness of it… So, the recipe search began. I’m so glad I landed on your recipe. We just finished this for dinner, and it was SERIOUSLY SOOOO GOOD! I didn’t make any changes, and it was perfect. My family LOVED it. Thank you!

    1. Camelle – I am thrilled you liked the recipe and delighted that you took the time to come back and share your experience with me! I hope you visit often!
