Apple Cranberry Pork Roast

It's Tuesday and that means another recipe.  My daughter gave me this one to try.  It came out of the Amy Hanten cookbook.  Amy has a website, http://www.thecookingmom.com/   I have used her recipes often.

Although the photos don't do it justice, it was very good.



Apple Cranberry Pork Roast

  • Boneless pork loin roast
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 can (16 ounces) whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup apple juice
  • 2 apples, peeled and chopped  
 Season roast with salt and pepper, and rub garlic all over it. Place roast in the slow cooker. In a bowl, whisk together cranberry sauce, brown sugar and juice. Pour it over the roast. Throw apples on top. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or until nice and tender. Slice and serve with the sauce. You can simmer the sauce in a saucepan on the stove for a few minutes if you want it to reduce down and thicken a bit. 

We enjoyed this roast and and have some leftover for tonight.  We weren't the only ones who got benefit of this meal.  The deer also got a treat of the apple peelings.  I barely put them out and the three girls arrived for a snack.
