Slow Cooked Pork Roast with Cranberry and Orange sauce
This is a recipe from Cooks Country. Their recipes are really so delicious.
This recipe is sooooooooooooo easy and no work at all. The slow cookers does all the work. So if you're a working person please give this a try you'll have a great meal when you get home, the kids will love it too.
4-5 lb pork roast (I used bone in but they used boneless)
1 can of whole cranberry
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1/8 tsp cinnamon
3 slices of orange peel (try not to get much pith)
2 TBL veg oil
salt and pepper
Salt and pepper the roast generously. In a large skillet heat the oil and then brown the roast on all sides starting with fat side down first. In the slow cooker mix all the other ingredients. Stir, place browned meat on top and cook for 5-6 hours on low. Internal temperature should register 140-145. Remove and let rest for 20 minutes. After about 5 minutes tent with aluminum foil. Take dripping from the slow cooker and in a small sauce pan reduce cooking for about 10 minutes at simmer. Serve over sliced meat. ENJOY! YUM!!!!
Sure hope you try this simple dish. I served this with red cabbage with apples and pear, found here. (I used that recipe and just added an additional chopped bartlett pear) Also had mashed potatoes with the gravy from the meat. Another YUM. We had the raspberry swirl sweet rolls for dessert.
Thanks for stopping by and taking time from you busy day. Have a wonderful week and Remember to Find the Time to DO all the things YOU love.
