Reviews forCranberry-Dijon Pork Roast
"Delicious! Used a package of regular onion soup mix as I couldn't find the Golden. Added 2 sliced onions. Used a smaller roast but made a full sauce recipe as another cook suggested. Did not strain the sauce as I wanted all those delicious morsels. Just great served on rice. Will make again."
"Tried this with a few variations today. I completely forgot the butter and mustard and used a dry onion soup mix since I couldn't find a golden soup mix. I also used a cranberry sauce without berries since that's all I had on hand. It was really good. Incredibly moist and just a hint of sweetness. Simple to prepare as well. Unsolicited, my husband told me how much he liked this recipe. He also thinks it would work with some sliced onion to soak up the flavor and I agree. Good straight or served pulled pork style."
"easy, tasted great."
"This is absolutely delicious with or without the dijon! I've made both ways depending on what taste I'm looking for at the time. I used a 1.5 pound roast but love the gravy juices enough I follow the recipe exactly to have extra! I did cut cooking time by about an hour and the meat is tender and flavorful."
"This was so easy and very tasty! The meat was tender too."
"good! USED pork TENDERLOIN and added some chix broth"
"I made this yesterday for Sunday dinner. I skipped the browning step, and it turned out just fine. Not unappetizingly pale, or anything like that. Just perfect. We loved it -- 4 adults and 2 little girls ate every scrap! Highly recommended. I will be making this again and again."
