MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 15, 2014

"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,"

"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."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2013

"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."
