This Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Sesame Pork Loin is full of flavor and takes only minutes to put in the slow cooker.
I found this idea in an old cookbook I was going through last week. I planned to follow the recipe exactly but found I was out of honey which was the main ingredient in the recipe. Instead this recipe is named Brown Sugar Sesame Pork Loin instead of honey. I Think the brown sugar is great in this recipe and am glad I was out of honey.
I forgot to take photos of the plated dish so you can see what this pork loin looks like sliced. But I do have a video below that shows the plated dish.
- 4 lb. pork loin (this is the larger than a pork tenderloin, look at the wording on the packaging)
- 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp. sesame oil
- 2 Tbsp. white vinegar
- 3/4 tsp. ground ginger
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
- 1 white onion, diced
Slow Cooker Size:
- 6 quart or larger
- In a medium sized bowl add the reduced sodium soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, vinegar, ginger, garlic, sesame seed and onion. Stir.
- Add the pork loin to the slow cooker. Pour over the sauce.
- Cover and cook for 7 hours on low. If you use smaller pork loin or tenderloin, you may want to reduce the time to 6 hours on low. Serve and enjoy!
Easter is just around the corner and the crock pot is a great way to make the ham. My go to recipe is Brown Sugar Ham though I really want to try this Maple Mustard Ham from the Frugal Girls! However you make a ham in the slow cooker it always turns out great. I hope you have a great week!
