Crock-pot Cranberry Pork Tenderloin

I got this recipe from another blog Tiny Tidbits, I have been looking for more crock pot recipes since I have been back to work so I can continue to have home cooked meals for my family.  I grew up with sitting down as a family for dinner at night and I hope to continue this as L gets older.  Its so hard though to cook on the nights I work so Crock pot recipes are the best.


This was delicious, and it really was a "fast" crock pot recipe as it only took 4 hours, you can do it on low heat for 8 though.


Crockpot Cranberry Pork Tenderloin


1 Pork Tenderloin
1 onion, sliced
1 packet of dry onion soup mix
1 can of whole cranberry sauce
1 Tbs butter
1 Tbs flour
black pepper to taste


Dump the onion into the bottom of the crockpot to act as a liner. Lay the pork tenderloin on top (you do not have to thaw the loin - just add cooking time), and sprinkle the dry soup mix evenly.


Spoon the cranberry sauce as evenly as possible over the loin and onions. You want the flavor to soak into every nook and cranny as it cooks, but it's not easily spreadable.



Put the lid on, and cook on high for 4 hours. Or low for about 8 hrs


When the loin is done, remove it from the crockpot, and set aside to rest on a cutting board.


Strain the juices that are leftover in the crockpot, and set aside. In a skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the tablespoon of flour, and stir with a whisk to create a roux allowing it to get slightly brown. Slowly pour in the reserved and strained liquid whisking until well-combined. Allow to heat through and thicken to your desired consistency (a gravy consistency), sprinkle with pepper, and remove from the heat.


Slice the tenderloin, and top with the gravy

I think I should have maybe cooked mine for 3 hours, I was not able to slice mine, it just kind of shredded but it was still super yummy.  We ate ours over white rice and with mixed veggies

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
