Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork
Yes, I did try this recipe but made so many changes. I have to say, I am sort of a bland eater but my husband loves spice, so we are pretty much opposite. For this recipe, what did I do? Well, I cut my pork tenderloin in half so I actually had two pieces totalling a little over a pound. Used one half can or so of jellied cranberry. Used a jar of Heinz beef gravey (yes I did). I melted the cranberry and gravey in a saucepan and it seemed a little thick so I added some beef broth-just poured it in..maybe half a cup??? When I browned the meat, I added William Sonoma garlic pepper...I am hooked. Then just a little salt since my hubby is diabetic and all the other stuff has a lot of salt. When I was browning the meat, I chopped half a small yellow onion and browned it with the roast. I have a crock pot where I can brown, so after it was browned,I put it in the heating element portion. I scrubbed baby red potatoes-you know the little ones. I was so unsure about what to do because I read put them in 2 hours ahead of time and others said to put them in for 8 hours, so... Anyway I put them in around my little roast pieces immediately and set the crock pot at 8 hours on low. Oh man, it smelled so good all day. After 8 hours, the potatoes were still a little hard (yes, they were firm after all that time). Set the timer on high for an hour. Served with broccolini. Potatoes were firm but for sure done. We enjoyed immensley. Please try as you will love this crazy recipe!!!!
