This recipe was so easy yet such a keeper. I crockpot five times a week and this was so easy to throw together in the morning. I served it with a side salad and garden rice. I thickened the liquid with flour and water to serve over pork. Wow!!!

Wonderful flavor. I love cranberries and pork. I used boneless country style spareribs and cut the time to 3 hours in the crockpot. Succulent & moist. Great combination of onion, cumin, mustard & cranberry. Definately a keeper

My husband LOVES por roast, I'm not a big fan, so unfortunately I don't cook it all that much. He is not a fan of cranberry sauce, but I am, so I tried this recipe. It was fabulous. I followed it exactly. He thought he was in heaven. Even the kids liked it. We had a little bit left over. So a couple of days later, cut it into bite size pieces and heated in the sauce on the stove. He still liked it. Will definately make this often. Thanks!
