Cranberry Pork Loin

Let me start by saying my husband AND daughter both had second helpings of this!  It was delicious!  Me, with my weird pregnant food aversions, I had half a piece.  While good, I am not much of a meat eater these days!  My husband couldn't stop talking about how good this tasted.  It smelled DIVINE cooking all day yesterday!  We were all really anxious to try it! 

This would be a great dinner for the fall/winter, especially if you're having company over.  They would be VERY impressed with your cooking skills!  The best part of this recipe is how incredibly easy it is!  I can't wait for you to try it!!!  I served mine with Stovetop Pork Stuffing and Frozen Mixed Vegetables.

I found the original recipe on I think.  I tweaked it a bit and here's what I have for you!

Cranberry Pork Loin

3 lb. Boneless Pork loin (trimmed of fat....which I forgot to tell my husband to do....and it left our "gravy" very greasy)
2 cans Whole Cranberry Sauce
1/2 cup Catalina Dressing
1 Onion, sliced
salt and pepper to taste

Place Pork Loin in your Crock Pot liner.  
Mix the Whole Cranberry Sauce, Catalina dressing and salt and pepper together, then pour over the pork loin.

Place your sliced onions on top.

Cook on LOW for 8 hours.

Serve with any sides of your choosing!  Enjoy!

TIPS:  As I mentioned above, trim your pork loin of all or most of it's fat.  It will keep your "gravy" from getting greasy.  You can also thicken the gravy by adding some Corn Starch after you've removed the Pork Loin from the Crock Pot.

  1. Looks and sounds delish. I think I will try this during the week since I am still without a stove. Thanks for sharing!

  2. The Crock Pot is the perfect solution if you're without stove! Let me know how it turns out for you!


  3. Hope...We made the Pork Loin last night. Meijer had it on sale Saturday for only $1.39 a pound! So I decided this was the week to make it! It was good. We didnt use the sauce for anything, but the flavor of the Pork was very good. I served it with rice pilaf and honey glazed carrots. Oh...and jellied cranberry sauce on the side! I took the leftover pork and shredded it to mix with a sweet honey BBQ sauce and am going to make sandwiches with it one night thsi week.

  4. Marie,

    Sounds like a great dinner! And, I love a good bargain!!!!
