Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork Roast

An easy slow cooker recipe that is fancy enough for a holiday dinner but easy enough for a busy weeknight.
Course: Dinner
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6 -8 servings
Author: Shelly


  • 1/2 can Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 2 pound Pork Loin Roast


  • Place the pork roast into a slow cooker (I use a 5 quart one) and sprinkle with seasoning.
  • Spread the cranberry sauce on top of the roast and cover. My slow cooker doesn’t need extra water added but if your slow cooker runs a little warmer, you might want to add a 1/4 cup of water.
  • Set the slow cooker to low and cook 8-10 hours or until meat is done.
  • Remove the roast from the slow cooker and let sit and cool for about 10 minutes to let juices settle in the meat.
  • Slice roast and serve.
  • If you want a full meal to cook in the slow cooker, add a few potatoes and vegetables before cooking with the meat.
