Sweet and Tangy Pork Loin

3/8 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1/8 cup honey
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 garlic gloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-3 pound pork loin
1 small onion, sliced (optional)
chopped green onions (optional)
sesame seeds, toasted (optional) I didn't have any and it was great without them.

In a bowl combine brown sugar, soy sauce, ketchup, honey, vinegar, garlic, and salt. Place sliced onion on the bottom of a crock pot. Place the pork loin on top of the onions. Then pour the sauce over everything.

Cover and cook on low until a meat thermometer reads 160-170 degrees. This will take about 5-6 hours. There is plenty of sauce so you I think you could start this in the morning and it will be ready when you are home from work.

Top the pork loin with green onions and/or sesame seeds if you desire.

*Rick and I really liked this recipe. We served it with rice and mixed veggies. We have enough left over for another meal or tomorrow's lunch.
