  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (optional)
  • 3 fresh sage leaves (1 for cooking, 2 for garnish)

    • Heat the oil with a sage leaf in a large Dutch oven or skillet over medium-high heat.

    • Stir in the white wine, chicken stock, shallots, crushed chili pepper flakes, garlic, and thyme.
    • Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
    • Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-8 hours, or until the pork is completely cooked.
  3. Prepare the Creamy Sauce:
    • Remove the cooked pork from the slow cooker and keep it warm.
    • In a small bowl, whisk together heavy cream and cornstarch.
    • Stir this mixture into the slow cooker with the cooking juices and replace the cover.
    • Cook on high heat for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
  4. Final Steps:
    • In the meantime, slice the pork loin.
    • Place the sliced pork loin back into the slow cooker to reheat for a couple of minutes.
    • Garnish with sage leaves.
    • Serve this delicious slow cooker creamy garlic pork loin over rice, pasta, or any vegetable immediately with the cream sauce.
