    The whole family loved it. I cut the brown sugar in half and cooked it for about 3 hours on low and 1 hour on high as per other reviewers suggestions.

    My pork was delicious. I would definitely serve this with veggies on the side. The sauce was very sweet so you need something to cut it. I had tons of sauce left over and served 3. I would definitely make less sauce next time but over all I was very satisfied

    It was good. I think I prefer my pork tenderloin cooked in an oven rather than a crockpot

    First 5 star we’ve given!!! No substitutions - followed directions to the letter but for the high heat. I did this low and slow. AMAZING!!!!

    I had a 1.5lb tenderloin and cooked on high for 2 hours. Could have made about half the amount of sauce for the size of the tenderloin. Would do less sugar next time!

    Definitely one of or favorites. I stuck to the recipe except for the glaze. Ireduced it for about 1/2 an hour.

    4.5 hours on high for a pork tenderloin that has been seared first? No way. Try 2.5 hours on high and switch to warm. Glaze was really good. Cut back on the sugar as balsamic is sweet on its own. Added a teaspoon of dijon.

    Cooked the tenderloin for 3.5 hours at low then high for 1 hour. When turning up added some of the glaze. Only used 1/2 cup of sugar and was good. Cannot imagine it being edible with all the sugar used from the recipe. Not sure I would use the sage again.

    I substituted thyme for sage, not sure how much that changed the flavor. I will prepare as the recipe suggest in the future. I reduced the brown sugar to 3/4 cups for the glaze, it complimented the savory flavors of the meat. Overall 4 stars.

    I cooked it on low with some of the olive oil from the skillet for about 6 hours. At the one hour mark, I made the glaze stirring till it mixed/boiled on the stove. At that point I drained out the oil and poured the glaze into the slow cooker to simmer for the last hour. Everybody loved it
