Cranberry Pork Roast Recipes

  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (2 1/2 to 3 pounds)
  • 1 can (16 ounces) of jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • seasoning

Place pork roast in a crock pot. In a bowl mash the cranberry sauce and stir in sugar, cranberry juice, mustard, and cloves. Add to crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours until meat is tender. Remove roast and keep warm. Remove fat from the top of the juice. Measure 2 cups of juice from the crock pot, making up any difference with water, and pour into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Mix the cornstarch and water to make a paste and stir into the juice to make gravy. Cook while stirring until thickened. Add seasoning. Pour over sliced pork.
This pork roast recipe will serve 6 to 8.

Stuffed Pears and Pork Roast Recipes

  • 3-pound loin of pork
  • cooking oil
  • salt
  • 2 medium onions
  • seasoning
  • 3 ounces bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons melted margarine
  • 1 teaspoon powdered or freshly chopped sage
  • 1 egg
  • 2-4 dessert pears (halved)

Score the fat or skin of pork roast and brush with oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt. Make stuffing by boiling onions until tender, chop, and blend with breadcrumbs, margarine, sage, and egg. Roll the stuffing into balls and place them in the center of the pear halves. Stuff the roast with any remaining stuffing by slitting the meat and making a pocket to hold the stuffing. Alternatively bake the stuffing in a separate dish for 30 minutes. Roast the pork in a 350-degree F. oven for 1 1/2 hours or until done. Place the pears in the roaster 30 minutes before the roast is done.
This pork roast recipe will serve 4 to 6.

Guide for Pork Roast Recipes

When cooking pork roasts always take note of the weight of the roast as this is what determines the length of time the roast must be cooked. Generally, cook a pork roast at 350 degrees F. and it is well done when the interior temperature reaches 185 degrees F. when checked with a meat thermometer probe. If you like your pork a little rarer, the internal temperature should be 160 degrees F., and pork is safe to eat as long as the internal temperature has reached at least 140 degrees F. At this temperature, the meat will be slightly pink. The following table can be a general guide for cooking any pork roast recipes.
