Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Recipe by  

"I tried this cut of meat when it was on sale, and for lack of any other ideas I took suggestions from the back of the label, with a few tweaks (like making gravy). This is a very popular dish at our house, and it could not be easier! Instead of rubbing the roast with the onion soup mix and then adding the cranberry sauce, you can also just mix the onion soup mix with the cranberry sauce and pour the whole mixture over the roast."

Directions

  1. Rub pork roast all over with onion soup mix and place roast in the slow cooker. Pour cranberry sauce over roast.
  2. Cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours. Remove roast to a platter, reserving juices in the slow cooker.
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Whisk flour into melted butter to form a paste. Pour reserved juices from the slow cooker into the butter mixture, whisking constantly, until gravy lightens in color and thickens, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Serve gravy alongside roast.

I was so pleasantly surprised by this roast. It turned out tender and juicy. The gravy was wonderful. My mother in law is elderly and doesn't eat a lot of meat and she gobbled this up. Will make this again. Simple but effective.

This is one of my favorite recipes for pork loin. I have made it for many years. The only thing I do differently is add about 1/2 cup of white wine with the onion soup mix and cranberry sauce. I make the gravy right in the crock pot on high for 15 minutes while the roast rests covered with foil. I have even used a frozen pork loin on high in the crock-pot for 5 hours. Very tender meat and delicious gravy. I often serve it with spatzle dumplings and applesauce.

Fabulous! The roast fell apart so that you couldn't even cut it. The only thing I wish I had done was cooked it on low for 6 hours instead, the 8 hours was too long for my smaller 2lbs roast and dried the meat out. Also-I did not have cranberry sauce, so I subbed in chunk canned pineapple and it worked ok, I'm sure the cranberry is SO much better with that sweet bitterness. I still made the gravy and the family ate it up! Will make this again!! :D

For such a simple, easy recipe, this is excellent. As another reviewer noted, the gravy is wonderful.
