No more excuses that there's no time to cook dinner! Slow cookers have made a big comeback, and this berry-licious idea will make our everyday pork roast recipe fancy, even if we aren't expecting guests!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 (3-pound) boneless center-cut pork loin roast, rolled and tied
  • 1 (16-ounce) can whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 (5.5-ounce) can apricot nectar
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
What To Do:
  1. Place potatoes in a 3-1/2-quart (or larger) slow cooker and place roast over potatoes.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well and pour over roast.
     
  3. Cover and cook on HIGH setting for 5 to 6 hours.
     
  4. Remove roast to a cutting board and thinly slice. Serve with potatoes and sauce.

I tweaked the recipe to include rhubarb with half the cranberry sauce. It's was divine!

My family loved this. Pork was so tender. I made it as is with just a tad more red pepper for an extra kick... I didn't think it was too sweet. A good company dish.

Family really liked it. My sister made it and her family also liked it. It was a little sweet for me. So next time will omit the sugar. Also like what lisaj21 said about swapping out the cranberry for pineapple and raisins for apricots. Omitting sugar. Will try that next time.

I tried this recipe and it was very tasty; the kids loved it. I even passed this recipe on to my mother. I've also swapped out cranberry for pineapple chunks, w/the juice for the liquid and omitted the sugar and used raisins instead of apricots. Easy and simple meal.

I tried this dish this week and it was "oh sooo good." I substituted some honey for the sugar and it gave it a nice richness. I also thickened the sauce a little with corn starch and water so my family could dunk their bread. They loved it and so will you!!!

Have some bbq'd ham/bone left over from Christmas dinner. Maybe I could make up some potatoes and add to the meat. I also made cranberry relish and have plenty of that. How would that be? and maybe some raisins? any suggestions?

Just found Mr. Food and am delighted. Cooking at my age (80) is no longer "Old Hat" ! I'm trying new ideas daily. Thank you for your revitalizing my dinners.
