Recipes from My Kitchen

Strange Crock-Pot Fellows

Every now and again there comes along a recipe that sounds gross.  So usually I just pass it by in the cookbook.  That same recipe, made by someone else, turns out to be delicious (judging a book, cover, all that nonsense).  The last time I was at my mom’s I found that recipe.  She had a Kraft magazine with lots of recipes that I skimmed through.  I passed this one right by.  Thankfully, my mama made it for dinner and it was *incredible*.  I made it in my own kitchen, immediately 🙂

Slow-Cooker Cranberry Pork

2 Tbsp oil
1 Pork Roast
1 can (14 oz) whole berry cranberry sauce
1/2 C Kraft Catalina Dressing
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp cornstarch
Zest and Juice from an orange

Sear the pork roast on all sides in a pan with oil until lightly brown and crisp.  Add pork to the crock pot.  Mix together the cranberries, dressing, and soy sauce in a bowl, and pour over the pork.  I made it for dinner, so I cooked it on Low for 8-10 hours (I think crock-pot meals do better on low for a longer time).


When the meal is done, remove the pork, and add in the cornstarch and orange to the remaining liquid in the crock pot.  Cook a few minutes longer, then add to the roast on the dish.
The pork will FALL apart – serve it with any side you have, eat it solo, use it as a leftover, makes a great sandwich.  Seriously, it’s that easy, and it’s that delicious!!
