Crock Pot Cranberry Pork Loin ~ Savory Pork Loin slow cooked in a cranberry sauce!Welcome to November. The month of turkey, stuffing and cranberries! I thought I’d kick the month off right with at least one of these things. I was a bit apprehensive, I won’t lie, I’m not a big fan of cranberries. Something about the fact they stay in the form of the can when  you open jellied cranberries. Mmmm ya that’s just weird, but I’m so glad I gave this recipe a chance.

I found this “keeper” in my copy of Gooseberry Patch’s Hometown Harvest Cookbook. Do you have any of the Gooseberry Patches Cookbooks? If not I need to take a moment and tell you to go get one stat.

This pork loin is slow cooked in a yummy cranberry sauce then you make an amazing gravy out of this and by the end of the day it’s so tender it just falls apart! I didn’t know what to think about the cranberries but they were perfect. The gravy has a hint of sweetness from the cranberries, but it’s not overpowering at all. Plus you hardly have to do anything with this recipe so it’s the perfect addition to your recipe box on those busy weeknights especially when the holidays roll around. I don’t know about you but it’s more crazy, if that’s possible, at my house around the holidays!

  • Seanna


    Looks delicious! Hoping to try it soon! What kind of mustard do you use? Thx!

  • Kim


    Julie this looks amazing! In the Cranberry Pork loin recipe, is the mustard dried mustard or prepared mustard? Have to try this!

  • Jessie


    A few question for you:

    1. since I do not use canned cranberry sauce, can I use fresh?

    2. Are you using dry mustard, yellow mustard or Dijon mustard?

    • Julie Evink


      I’m sure you can use fresh but I have never tried it this way. I used yellow mustard!

  • Emily


    I have a 5 lb pork loin in the freezer, could I use that in the recipe?

    • Julie Evink


      Hey Emily! I think that would work fine just make sure to double the sauce and make sure it’s cooked through since it’s a large pork loin!

  • Adrianne B


    I made a version of this today after finding your recipe on Pinterest. It turned out so well!!

    • Julie Evink


      I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

  • Seanna


    Have this going in my crock pot for dinner tonight! Did you shred the pork when it was done, or was that just for the photo? Thanks! Super excited to see how my family enjoys this!

    • Julie Evink


      I did it when I was done. It just kind of fell apart so I went with it!

  • Emily


    This was delicious!! I don’t usually like pork, but I went back for seconds with this!! =)

    • Julie Evink


      So glad to hear you liked it Emily!

  • Ann McCarthy


    Made this last night and loved it. Cooked it on high for four hours and used fresh cranberries and the last of some jarred lingonberries. Thanks for the recipe!

  • PATRICIA KUJAWSKI


    can I use a 3lb bone-in-sirloin pork roast

    • Julie Evink


      Yes I think that would work fine.
