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 + ¼ cup water
- For the Rub:
- 1 teaspoon sage
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- For the Glaze:
- ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
- 2-3 Tablespoons honey
- ½ 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. 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.
