Crockpot Cranberry Pork Tenderloin

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it sounded good.  I had some pork tenderloin and can cranberries, so I figured I would try this out.  This is a very good recipe and its also a crock pot recipe.  This is super easy to make and easy ingredients.

I didn’t have the ground cloves so I just omitted that and it still came out delicious.  We served this will home-made mashed potatoes.  My husband use the juice from the meat as gravy on his potatoes and said it was awesome.

We ended up shredding the meat as opposed to slices.  This would be great as a pulled pork sandwich as well.


1 pork tenderloin (1 lb.)

1 can of whole-berry cranberry sauce    IMG_1518

1/2 cup of orange juice

1/2 cup of sugar

1 tablespoon of brown sugar

1 teaspoon of ground mustard

2 tablespoons of cornstarch

3 tablespoons of cold water


Place pork in crock pot. In a small bowl, combine the cranberry sauce, orange juice, sugars, mustard; pour over pork. Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.

Remove pork and keep warm. Combine cornstarch; gradually stir into cranberry mixture. Cover and cook on high for 15 minutes or until thickened. Serve with pork and enjoy.

Note: next time I make this I am going to omit the 1/2 of sugar.  I think the brown sugar is good enough.  I used jelled cranberry sauce instead of whole berries.
