Crock Pot Cranberry Pork Loin

Savory Sweet and Satisfying: Crock Pot Cranberry Pork Loin

This recipe is so very easy which makes it perfect for the crazy holiday season. I really do not think it could get any easier. Mix the ingredients pour over pork in the crock pot. Cook and end up with delicious fall apart meat and a tasty sauce that is just right with minimal effort. Just remember that every crock pot cooks differently, so you may want to check the meat a few times to make sure you do not over cook it or it will be dry.

Crock Pot Cranberry Pork Loin
3 pounds pork loin
1-14 ounce can jelled cranberry sauce
1/2 cup 100% cranberry juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water

Place pork loin in a slow cooker.

In a medium bowl, mash cranberry sauce the stir in cranberry juice, sugar, mustard and ground cloves. Pour over pork loin. Place lid on crock pot and cook for 5-8 hours.

Remove pork loin from crock pot and place on a serving platter and cover with foil.

In a small bowl combine cornstarch and water to make a paste.

Remove out 2 cups of the liquid from the crock pot and pour into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add in cornstarch mixture. Stir and cook until thickened. Serve sauce over pork.


You can make more sauce if you want. Just increase the cornstarch and water by a tablespoon each for every 1 cup of additional liquid.
