Reviews for Cranberry-Mustard Pork Loin
Sort By :
"With all the great reviews, I had great expectations which it failed to meet. I thought it to be bland and only had a 'kick' in the flavor when I bit into a cranberry. Won't waste another pork loin on this one,"
"Based on the comments, had really high expectations of this one. It was okay but I just didn't love it."
"I keep looking for more pork recipes and I found this and thought I'd love it with the cranberries but it wasn't my favorite. It was good but I just not my taste."
"A great flavor for a pork loin. The sauce was great as well. This dish was easy to make and the whole family liked it."
"This was really delicious. My hubby says its a keeper! The pork was so tender and the sauce has a nice flavor. Mine was done after 4 hrs. I added 2 Tbsp of cornstarch like some of the other reviews and it came out the perfect consistency. Next time I might try leaving out the brown sugar. As someone else commented, it really would very sweet with just the cranberry sauce."
