Crockpot Meal - Cranberry Pork Roast

Now before you write this off as "sounds gross! I'd never eat that!" Give it a try. My SUPER picky family actually likes this one. I don't have a pic to include of it because I recently prepared this meal - as in BEFORE the inception and my inclusion on Lose It Bitches. Be sure to come back and leave a comment should you try it for your family. We'd love to know if you liked it and what sides you paired it with!

Cranberry Pork Roast

You’ll Need:
1 16oz can Wholeberry Cranberry Sauce

1 medium onion - chopped

1 5.5 oz can apricot nectar (I just drained the juice from a can of apricots…worked just fine. Save the apricots to pair with some lowfat cottage cheese for tmorrow's snack!)

½ cup of sugar**

½ cup of coarsely chopped dried apricots

2 tsp distilled white vinegar

1 tsp dried mustard

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes

2 ½ pounds boneless pork loin roast - well trimmed

What to do:

Mix all the above ingredients.

Reserve a small amount to pour over pork.

Pour ingredients into crock pot

Add the pork roast

Pour reserved amount of sauce over pork

Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours

**Can substitute ½ cup of Splenda for ½ cup of sugar. Will slightly reduce carbs for meal.

Oh this is just too funny. I pulled out a tenderloin from the freezer this morning and hunted through my cookbooks for a recipe to use it in my crockpot. I actually picked out almost this exact same recipe. Now I know I picked a good one because you all have said it was good. :)

Just thought I'd come back and let you all know - this was a complete hit for dinner. Everyone in my family LOVED it.

I've had a version of this dish, only instead of apricots it was made with orange marmalade. I thought at first I wouldn't like it, but it did turn out super yummy!! I even had to make it again another time it was so good.
