Crock Pot Pork Loin
Welcome to November. The month of turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce! You can find some of my favorite Thanksgiving Recipes here! What can I say, I love the flavors of fall and all things Thanksgiving!
And cranberries are a must during the season! Sparkling Cranberry Cocktail, Cream Cheese Cranberry Bread Recipe, Apple Cranberry Crisp or Cranberry Orange Bread Pudding! Just type in Cranberry and see what you find!
So, in the spirit of all things cranberry, I thought I’d kick the month off right!
I was a bit apprehensive, I won’t lie, I’m not a big fan of canned 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!

What is the difference between pork loin and pork tenderloin?
- Pork tenderloin is a thin piece of meat. Pork loin is a wide cut, wide enough you can slice steaks from it.
Should pork loin be cooked fat side up or down?
- Cook the pork loin fat side down in your crockpot
Can I put a frozen pork roast in the crockpot?
- You can, you’ll just need to adjust the cooking time. It will take an additional 4-6 hours on low, 2 hours more on high. Best bet to not overcook the meat? Thaw it in the refrigerator the night before.
