"This is a recipe I made up when my husband requested a 'roast that tastes like Christmas.' It's a savory-sweet pork roast with cranberries, apples, and cloves. You can add ground cloves to the glaze instead of using whole cloves." — Steffamie

1 (4 pound)
boneless pork loin roast
2 (16 ounce) cans
whole berry cranberry sauce
1 (16 ounce) can
This recipe was delicious. I used ground cloves instead of whole, but I should have used a little less of all of the spices. But even still, it was great. I will definitely make this next Christmas!
Despite getting the wrong cranberry sauce at the store (we got the regular ol' cranberry jelly), and not having any ginger, this was amazing! The kids LOVED the glaze (while the roast was resting, I poured it into a sauce pan and added some cornstarch to thicken it up some) and kept asking for more, the hubby kept remarking at the flavor and the juiciness of the pork, and while it was cooking, it made the entire house smell divine. This is going in the "tried & true" list for sure.
Positively delectable! My whole house smelled amazing while this was in the oven!
Followed recipe exactly as written. The house smelled amazing while it was in the oven. The meat was tender and juicy but a bit on the sweet side for our liking. Overall I thought it was pretty good, my husband didn't care for the taste of cloves or Cinnamon on meat and our 9 year old said it was alright. I probably won't make this again, but it was nice to try something different.
