Crockpot Cranberry Pork Roast

I got this recipe several years ago from my aunt.  I finally made it the day after Christmas when Chad’s parents came over to see all Maria’s presents.

It was super easy and very delicious!  I loved the sweet cranberry gravy it made. Very good with mashed potatoes!

Cranberry Pork Roast

2 1/2-3 # pork loin roast
16 oz jellied cranberry sauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cranberry juice
1 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp ground clove
2 tbsp corn starch
2 tbsp water (cold)
salt (to taste)

Place pork roast in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mash cranberry sauce; stir in sugar, cranberry juice, mustard and cloves. Pour over roast. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender. Remove roast and keep warm.

Skim fat from juices; measure 2 cups adding water if necessary, and pour into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Combine cornstarch and cold water to make a paste; stir into gravy. Cook and stir until thickened. Season with salt. Serve with sliced pork (and mashed potatoes!)
