Cranberry Pork Tenderloin Recipe

In Melbourne, Florida, Betty Helton relies on a can of cranberry sauce to create the sweet sauce for this tender pork entree. She adds orange juice and ground cloves to the mixture to season it nicely as it simmers.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 5-1/4 hours YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound)
  • 1 can (16 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons cold water

Directions

  • 1. Place the tenderloin in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Combine the cranberry sauce, orange juice, sugars, mustard and cloves; pour over pork. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160°.
  • 2. Remove pork and keep warm. In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; stir in cranberry mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with pork. Yield: 4 servings.

"An unexpectedly delicious gravy, fork-tender meat, and swoon inducing flavor. I've served this to guests and they always ask for the recipe. Excellent flavor combinations, moist, delicious. I've also made this over and over again in my electric pressure cooker, and the flavors when done in the slow cooker are just as superb. I pressure cook a 3-pound roast on high for 65 minutes and do a natural pressure release for ten minutes."

"This recipe is awesome. The 1st time I tried it i used a pork sirloin roast, in the oven. Tonight I made pork chops on the stove and used this sauce. I did not use the cloves, it doesn't need it. My husband and I enjoyed this with mashed potatoes, green beans and a salad. This my new go to pork recipe! I'm sure it would be great with chicken or turkey tenderloins as well. Great recipe!"

"This recipe is a nice change of pace from the way I normally cook pork tenderloin. Love the fact that this is cooked in the crock-pot!"

"Recipe could probably accommodate a larger tenderloin simply by cutting it to fit the slow cooker. There was plenty of sauce left over (about 2 cups) which we used up on ham sandwiches. The family enjoyed it so much they suggested replacing the turkey on Thanksgiving with this entrée. It compliments an acorn squash side dish very well."

"I love pork tenderloin but my husband does not as a general rule. I made this and the only change I made was to use pineapple juice intead of orange juice. This was so tender and just delicious. Husband agreed this was the best pork tenderloin that he ever had. Glad to finally have a recipe that he will enjoy too. Yes, definitely a keeper."
