Bourbon Brown Sugar Pork Loin
1-1/2 lb pork loin roast (may have to buy 2-3 lb roast & cut in half, reserving one half)
½ cup water
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp minced garlic
½ cup water
½ cup Jack Daniel TN Whiskey
3 Tbs cornstarch
4 Tbs soy sauce
Dry meat with paper towels. Salt & pepper all sides and ends. Heat a large pan with 2 Tbs oil over medium high heat. Sear each side and ends until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Place roast in slow cooker with ½ cup water and cook 5-6 hours on low or until meat thermometer reads 145 degrees.
Glaze: make while roast is cooking. Whisk all ingredients in small saucepan and heat until boiling. Reduce heat and simmer until glaze thickens. Baste roast 2-3 times during the last hour of cooking.
When roast reaches 145 degrees remove from slow cooker and place on a foil lined baking pan. Add another coating of glaze and broil on high for 1-2 minutes to caramelize top. Remove from oven and tent with foil for 20 minutes before slicing and serving.
