Equipment

  • Slow cooker

Ingredients
  

  • 3 ½ to 4 lb Pork Loin trimmed of fat with just a little left for flavor
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3 Springs Rosemary

Sauce

  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup balsamic reduction
  • cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary fresh, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon paprika smoked
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herbs dry
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, black

Instructions
 

Prepare the Meat

  • Pat dry the loin using paper towels. Next, trim out the visible fat from the top, leaving just a very thin layer that will add more flavor when cooking.
  • Place a large skillet, over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and when the oil starts shimmering, add the loin to it. Sear it for 3-4 minutes of each side, or until it is a nice golden brown color.

Balsamic Sauce

  • In a bowl combine all the SAUCE ingredients. Whisk to combine.

Slow Cook

  • Add the seared loin to the slow cooker, fat side up. Next, pour the sauce all over the meat. Add the rosemary sprigs. Cover the slow cooker with the lid, and cook for 4-6 hours on LOW. (Caution to high a temp or for too long, the meat drys out)

Serve

  • Once done cooking, remove the m3eat from the pot and transfer it to a cutting board.
  • Cover it with foil and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • You can either slice it or shred it, serve with rice or your favorite sides.
  • Garnish with fresh rosemary and chopped parsley.
