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.
Delicious ! I cut my pork loin into thick chops, sprinkled them with pepper and Essence and browned them before putting them in the crock pot. Added Worcestershire sauce , a pinch of salt and a sprinkle of Rosemary Garlic seasoning. Followed the directions for making the gravy but used 2 tbsp cornstarch, not 1. Served with mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. Definitely worth making! So tasty and easy!
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.
I am tempted to leave the sugar out next time I make this, since the cranberry sauce already has sugar in it. Also, it did not make sense to me to strain the juices; why use whole cranberry sauce if you're not going to eat the cranberries? At any rate, my husband and I both enjoyed this and I will make again.
