  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 lb. pork loin
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 red onions thinly sliced


  • 1/2 cup chicken broth low- sodium
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 6 cloves garlic minced


  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat, and heat the oil.
  • Season the pork all over with salt and pepper, then sear until golden, about 3 minutes per side.
  • In the meantime, add the sliced red onions to the bottom of a 6-qt crockpot.
  • Place the seared pork loin on top of the onions.
  • Cover and cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or on LOW for 6-7 hours, depending on the size of the meat.


  • During the last hour of cooking, make the glaze.
  • Place a small saucepan over medium-high heat, add and whisk all glaze ingredients until combined. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until thicken and syrupy, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Brush the pork with the glaze every 20 minutes during the last hour of cooking.
  • When done cooking, slice and serve with roasted vegetables.
