Reviews for Cranberry Glazed Pork Roast
"Cooked a pork sirloin roast in the crock pot on high with half of the sauce for 5 hours. Served the rest of the sauce with the meat. Everyone loved it! Also added the dry mustard and cloves as some other reviewers recommended."
"I didn't have orange juice so I used a half cup of pineapple tidbits with juice and added a little powdered ginger as a spice. Delicious!"
"Quick to put together and delicious. Made for Easter and everyone loved it."
"This was excellent. I did add the dry mustard and cloves to the glaze. I had a larger roast. It took a good 3.5 to 4hrs. I thought the 140 degrees sounded too low for pork to be done enough. I looked it up to make sure, and most of the info I found all said 160. So my hunch was correct. So I was expecting it to take longer. Also I don't think my oven is working just right either. Anyhow, it turned out delicious! I will certainly follow this recipe again."
"Similar to another TOH recipe I've used for yrs. that calls for an entire 16 oz. can of whole berry cranberry sauce as well as 1 tsp. ground mustard, 1/4 tsp. ground cloves, 1/4 cup cold water & 1/4 cup water. I freeze any leftover sauce in 1/2 cup portions, which is also delicious spooned over broiled skinless/boneless chicken breasts for a quick, simple meal."
"My pork roast was exactly 3lbs but it took longer than 1hr to get done. This same recipe is in TOH holiday recipe card collection magazine 2000 with the only difference being a longer cooking time of 1hr and 45 min. I think that is more accurate. Having said that, this is sooo delicious I will certainly make again."
