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.

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.

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.

I used homemade cranberry sauce (Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire) from AR. Husband thought this was a great recipe. Thank you.

Love the roast but it's the sauce that makes this meal!

I made this but I didn't have everything that the recipe called for, in fact the only thing I had was the Pork Roast, so I substituted. Instead of the Onion Soup Mix, I had Lipton's Vegetable Soup Mix, so I put the meat in the slow cooker, emptied the soup on top of the meat; I had dried cranberries, piled them on top, added about a cup of Chicken Broth, then added some cutup potatoes, carrots and 2 celery stalks. Followed the recipe from there. The 2 tbsp of flour with some melted butter I did as instructed and then took that and poured it into the juice, which was very lumpy because of the cranberries. I can not believe how delicious this was. I was afraid I might have ruined a perfectly good pork roast and it ended up coming out absolutely delicious. Will save as a favorite! Thanks Lawrence for the recipe idea!

I just put it in the slow cooker. I had home-made cranberry sauce, but not sure I had the equivalent of 16 oz. so I added some fresh squeezed orange juice and a little honey-pineapple mustard. The recipe sounds awesome, obviously should be good with poultry as well. Serving over mashed potatoes because I have some left over, but would be nice with jasmine rice too.
