Slow-Cooked Spiced-Cranberry Pork Roast
When you’re in the mood for a splendidly juicy pork roast, try this one in the slow cooker. It’s so easy and so good, and the cranberries make the perfect autumn dinner (although it’s great any time of year). Try it with potatoes and mixed greens and carrots.
Serves: 8
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours


One 3 1/2 to 4 pound boneless pork shoulder roast
One 6 ounce can jellied cranberry sauce
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup cranberry juice
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Trim the fat from the pork shoulder roast, if necessary, and transfer the meat to a 4 to 6-quart slow cooker.

Use a wire whisk to stir together the cranberry sauce and sugar. Add the juice, mustard, cloves and pepper and stir well. Pour over the pork roast.

Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until the pork roast is tender. Season to taste with salt and serve with the juices from the roast.
