Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pulled Pork

I found this recipe from one of my blog links, C + C  Marriage Factory.

The original recipe is followed by my own modifications.

1 (2 pound) boneless 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
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.

 I had a 4 pound bone in Pork Sirloin Loin roast that I thawed and placed in the crock pot over a bed of onions and garlic.
After I made the glaze and the pork was near done cooking, I removed it and roasted it at 400 for about 30 minutes to improve the color. I then strained the juices from the crock pot and added it to the glaze with another tablespoon of cornstarch and brought to a boil to thicken again. I removed the roast and pulled it apart and added back to the crock pot. I poured the glaze overall and turned the pot on to high for another hour.  It's delicious!
