Cranberry sauce, cranberry juice, cloves, and dry mustard make a flavorful sauce for the pork in this slow cooker recipe.


  • 1 3 - pound boneless pork top loin roast (double loin, tied)
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 16 - ounce can whole cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • Hot cooked rice pilaf, rice or noodles (optional)


  1. In a large skillet, cook pork in hot oil over medium heat until well browned on all sides. Place pork in a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker; sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. In a medium bowl combine cranberry sauce, cranberry juice, sugar, mustard and cloves. Pour over roast. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
