i am diggin using my crockpot more lately. it's just the best thing ever. i mean, i can quickly prepare meat in the morning to put in the crockpot and let cook on low for 6 to 8 hours...OMG, so easy & less mess! i'm so hooked! i love it. i know, i act like it's something that's new, when it's not, LOL. i'm just a girl that really enjoys grilling, roasting & sauteing meat in the oven. but i now have a new love for cooking meat in the crockpot.
i've not bought pork tenderloin, say over a year. i was sooo bored w/ that meat that every time i'd make it just wasn't good to me. while roaming around pinterest, i came across the beautiful image above & clicked on the link to find the recipe here. oh my word, the combination of brown sugar & balsamic vinegar had my mouth salivating beyond belief, LOL. i, of course, pinned it & waited & waited for months before i finally took the plunge to buy some tenderloin. i had to buy two as the store only carried 1lb slabs of meat in a package.
the aroma of sage & garlic together left the house smelling so yum & eight hours later, dinner was served! goodness gracious...the family devoured it. Tim & i even had seconds & honestly, we probably could have eaten it all up if we didn't have side dishes...it was that DAMN good! i don't see myself getting bored w/ this yummy sweetness anymore. something we have added to our menu on the regular & probably the best meal we've eaten this week thus far!
happy friday, xo!
