I got the recipe from Allrecipes.com & made this recipe over the weekend and we really loved it. There is no 6 oz cranberry sauce so I assumed it was a mistake and used a 14-oz can (used to be 16 oz). Next time I would only use 1/4 cup sugar (2/3 c is way too much). I also cut the cloves to 1/2 TSP and it was plenty strong of cloves. Also used 1/2 TSP pepper. Is there some reason why you don't use salt in the recipe - is it because most of the pork today is injected with brine? You end up with enough liquid for gravy with the 14-oz can cranberries. I would give an option of thickening as some suggest. I am saving the recipe with my adjustments and using it with our customers.
Served with sweet potatoes & stuffing!! great alternative to turkey
Made this using all the same ingredient amounts except used just a 2.5 lb roast because there are only 5 in my family. This recipe was absolutely incredible! My hubby described it as "superb". Tastes like fall - or the holidays! We had it over mashed potatoes and used the remaining juices as gravy. The pork was so tender it just fell apart.
Love, love, love this recipe. Never a huge pork fan but this is one of gthe tastiest I have ever had. We have made it twice now for dinner with company and there is never any left. The prep couldn't be simpler and the house smells great. Just put it together in the morning and it's ready for dinner, easy as that.
This is a great & very easy meal to prepare. The only reason that I gave it 3 stars was that the sauce was so thin. My kids solved it by using canned cranberry sauce on top & liked that a lot. This evening I didn't have time to spend making a gravy or reducing the sauce, so the cranberries worked for us. Think next time I'll double the sauce, but only cook half with the pork. The other half I'll reduce in a sauce pan & refrigerate till we all come home in a rush, starving to death!
So easy and makes the house smell like fall holidays. Served with mashed potatoes but hot egg noodles would be good too. The second time I made it, I didn't have cranberry juice and used orange juice. That was tasty too.
I wanted to give it a % star but it must have not taken! When I say double the receipe I dont mean the meat just the ingredients for the sause. It actually comes out very thin (juice) and so that is why I recommend making it in to a gravy, THAT is what makes it AWSOME!!
If you take the sauce when it is done cooking and in a pot make it in to a gravy with some corn starchit is the BEST gravy you will EVER taste!! I double the receipe and then it is enough to feed a family of 4-5
I've made this twice - it's easy, affordable and delicious - my family loves it.
