Cranberry Pork Roast

This is a recipe from my friend Aly. I just tried it for the first time and I absolutely loved it! I let it cook in the crock pot for 6 hours and it was so moist and tender. It was the perfect Sunday meal!

Cranberry Pork Roast

  • 2-3 lb boneless rolled pork loin roast
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 16 oz can jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup cranberry juice
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves

place the roast in a crock pot. combine cranberry sauce, sugar, cranberry juice (or substitute apple juice if you don't have cranberry juice on hand), mustard and cloves. pour over roast. cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until meat is tender.

*Gravy*

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 teaspoon salt

remove the roast from the crock pot and cover with foil to keep warm. skim the fat from the juices. measure out 2 cups, adding water if necessary. pour into a saucepan. bring to a boil over medium heat. combine the cornstarch and cold water to make a paste. stir into gravy. cook and stir until thickened. season with salt and serve over sliced pork.
