I have a serious obsession with Balsamic Vinegar.

In fact there is a local Italian restaurant that I may, just may, only to get their amazing bread and dip it in balsamic vinegar. Don’t get me wrong the pasta is quite tasty but that balsamic vinegar and bread. Now that is to die for.

Hmm why don’t I do this at home? I could make crusty bread and bathe it in balsamic vinegar quite easily couldn’t I?

Well, that would just ruin my excuse to go out for supper, so scratch that. Please don’t let my hubby know this thought. It will be our secret. Mmmk? Great.

This pork loin is slow cooked and ready for you when you get home. Quick whip up this glaze and you will feel like you are eating in a restaurant.

Have guests coming? Want to impress the in-laws? This is your ticket!


In fact…my father may have said, wow this was worth driving up here for without a doubt. I feel like I’m in a restaurant!

Don’t worry…I won’t tell anyone you didn’t slave all day in the kitchen over it!

      […] Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin – Modifications to this: I put about a cup of water in my crock pot (our lid doesn’t seal as well and tends to use more water than what a recipe says) and I used garlic salt instead of actual garlic. I fixed this last night. This was also the first time I had made a balsamic glaze. I have to say – I was told multiple times last night that it was the best pork loin I’d ever fixed. Seth ate it without me having to tell him and he even asked for more glaze cause he said it was that good. He dipped his potatoes & green beans in it as well. Jeremy said dinner made him feel better (he’s been fighting back pains) and Keira ate her pork, her potatoes & green beans and all her carrots and asked for more. I thought she wanted carrots (which is the norm) but no, she wanted more pork with glaze! I was happy to oblige and she even ate most of the carrots that were left in the “community bowl” as well. After dinner we ate up the rest of the Key Lime Pie I had made for church on Sunday (it was homecoming) at the living room table. We also didn’t have anywhere to go last night so it was nice to sit back and relax for once! […]
