Crock Pot Cranberry Dijon Pork Roast

Healthy and delicious! Enjoy the beautiful blend of flavors in this gluten free, dairy free, nutritionally balanced meal. Crock pot Cranberry Dijon Pork Roast takes about 15 minutes to assemble in your crock pot.   Fill your home with the enticing, meaty aromas all day . This is an incredibly easy dinner. Our family loves it! Crock Pot Cranberry Dijon Pork Roast I admit to a boring, stuck in the rut, winter recipe past…It’s easy (for me) to make the same family favorite recipes way too often until they beg you to stop. Winter is so dreary and uninspiring. This recipe sparks up our meals with new flavors.

Recently, I’ve lost the variety of fresh vegetables from our garden. This year we are winter gardening, and there is the greenhouse peppers yet. But still…. lots of horrible weather to slog through to get to them.

The violent winds and rain left our hooped raised beds in disarray and the poor veggies are suffering. The rain this week has got us at flood stage. Our  gravel driveway is dissolving into eroded, rutted, mud sucking puddles, and just YUCK!

Poor Dave is out there now trying to repair the driveway so we can navigate it without sinking our vehicles axle deep. Safe, dry and warm  in my cozy kitchen, see me happily researching recipes while my homemade French Bread is rising. I only feel a little guilty. He eats well anyway 🙂

Crock pot Cranberry Dijon Pork Roast Recipe is Cozy winter cooking:

Just yesterday I found this intriguing recipe by fine cooking. I have adapted their recipe to an easy crock pot meal using a pork roast. The result is a healthy main dish with a yummy, sparkling blend of mustardy cranberry, piquant flavor. Well balanced flavor in a healthy meal.

My Holiday baking adventures making delicious monkey bread left us a few pounds heavier. It’s time to clear our digestive tracks of huge quantities of addicting sweet cinnamon bread with this Crock Pot Cranberry Dijon Pork Roast.

Cranberries offer a healthy zing in our meals. We enjoy the flavor they add to a meal when balanced with other flavorful ingredients. We love cranberry recipes. Cranberry bundt cake, Crock Pot Cranberry Raspberry Chipotle Pork Roast, and Homemade Cranberry Sauce, are a few of my recipes including this healthy berry.

Recipe Notes for Crock Pot Cranberry Dijon Pork Roast:

Fresh cranberries and maple syrup blend together with that unique dijon mustard and Lemon Thyme to make a great flavor team. This recipe is so simple and SO good!

I have put Dijon and honey together in my Honey Mustard chicken recipe and creamy balsamic salad dressing but I’ve never tried to put cranberries with Dijon and maple syrup, or use this combination on pork.

This recipe opens a new cooking dimension for me. I did mention my tendencies to get rather boring in the winter. Cranberry Dijon Pork Roast offers a new way to wring the boring out of winter cooking. Enjoy.

Instructions:

  • Slice the pork roast into one inch steaks and layer them in the crock pot with the other ingredients, as shown.
  • Set it and forget it. Doesn’t get much easier than that 🙂
