Reviews for Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork
"This is delicious... so easy and so good!"
"Very good. I used 1/4 c of sugar but followed everything else exactly."
"Excellent! Cut back a bit on the sugar and used OJ instead of cranberry! Yum!"
"I love this recipe! I have made it 3 times now. I use a 3-4 lb pork loin roast as that is what my grocer carries most often. HIGHLY recommend only using a scant 1/4 c. sugar- you will not miss it, I promise. When I made it this time around, I did not want to take the time to brown the roast so I skipped this step and the results were still fantastic. Definitely only 5-10 mins to prepare this. This is a go-to crock pot dish for me!"
"I made this recipe for the first time today. It was easy and tasted great. The cloves add a nice flavor. At first I was a little concerned about the sugar but it didn't end up tasting too sweet like I feared. I'd definitely make it again."
"My daughter loves making this recipe for us and it turns out perfect every time. Too easy! Makes it even better!"
"This is a wonderful dish...and so easy. It takes 10 minutes or less to put together in the morning. The house smells heavenly when I come home after work. I server this to my sister and aunt who are excellent cooks. They loved it! Serve it to impress friends or family."
