Cranberry Pork Loin

Classic Holiday Slow Cooking

This easy holiday pork roast recipe cooks up in a cranberry sauce with fresh orange zest.  Sage and a pinch of allspice add an earthiness that helps balance out the sweetness of the cranberry sauce.

1 (2- to 3-pound) pork loin roast

Salt and pepper to taste

2 (14-ounce) cans whole berry cranberry sauce

1 teaspoon orange zest

3 leaves sage, chopped

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon allspice

Generously season pork loin with salt and pepper, and place in a slow cooker.

Add all remaining ingredients to the roast in the cooker.

Set the cooker to LOW, cover, and let cook 6 hours, or until a meat thermometer registers 160°.

Remove roast from slow cooker and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.  Season the sauce with a pinch of salt and serve over the sliced pork.

Helpful Hint

Cooking 6 hours will leave the meat tender but still somewhat firm (similar to if it was oven-roasted).  If you’d like pork that is literally fork-tender and falling apart as you slice it, cook at least 8 hours.
