Serving Suggestions

We love mashed potatoes and green beans. It is simple but delicious. The sauce is amazing drizzled over the green beans and even the mashed potatoes. Sometimes we also add a simple side salad or learn how to steam broccoli in the microwave for another easy side idea.

Rice is also tasty. We actually keep this in the freezer so it is so easy on busy nights. Of course I have to spoon the sauce over the rice too. Once you try it, you will see why it is good on everything!

Learn how to freeze rice and you can make this meal even easier. I love to grab the rice from the freezer and we all can enjoy a really easy meal. We do this for lots of meals and it helps put together a quick meal. If you are not freezing rice, it is such a time saver.

This meal is also good with asparagus. This oven roasted asparagus is a family favorite and it is very simple and quick to make.

  1. Carrie Barnard says:

    You can do either honestly. I normally do fat side up or I trim off the fat before I cook it.

  2. Lisa says:

    When cooking the pork, should the fat side be up or down in the crock pot?

  3. Suzanne Handy says:

    This Crock-Pot Balsamic Pork Tenderloin recipe is full of flavor and it’s so delicious. When my local grocery store has a sale on Pork tenderloins I will buy a couple and stock up so I can make this recipe..

  4. Pam says:

    Carrie, can I use worcestershire sauce instead of soy sauce? If yes would it be the same amount? Thanks!

  5. Mary Culp says:

    So very good! Great recipe, family loves it with baked potato and green bean casserole.

  6. Carrie says:

    Bryan, You can use a mixture of sugar and molasses. I have a post on how to make brown sugar. If it’s for dietary reasons, there are some great brown sugar erythritol that would work great in this recipe as well.

  7. Bryan King says:

    Is there an alternative to the brown sugar??

  8. Mellissa says:

    Can you add the glaze to the pork while cooking so it merries all together?
