Brown Sugar Pork Loin
4 pounds boneless pork loin roast
1 clove garlic, halved
1/2 tsp salt or to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 1/3 cups brown sugar, divided
1 tbs Dijon mustard or a grainy mustard
1 tbs balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
If the pork has an excessive layer of fat, trim it a bit. A little fat will help keep the roast juicy over the long period of cooking.
Rub the roast all over with the garlic halves, then sprinkle with salt and pepper, then prick the roast all over with a fork or skewer.
In a cup or bowl, combine 1 cup of the brown sugar, the mustard, and vinegar. Rub all over the roast.
Place in a Crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours, or until tender but not falling apart. Pour off the excess juices.
Combine the remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar with cinnamon. Spread the mixture over the top of the roast. Cover and continue cooking on low for 1 hour longer. Serves 6-8

when you say cover and cook on low do you mean in a crockpot?
