Cranberry Roast Pork

READY IN: 3hrs
Recipe by Paintpuddles

This dish has been one we have often made during the Christmas holidays. It is a family favorite. The recipe came from the Frugal Gourmet - Jeff Smith The only thing we changes is to double the amounts for the Cranberry sauce as we love having extra sauce on the side to serve over the roated pork.

ABSOLUTELY GREAT ROAST ~ I used whole berry cranberry sauce along with the onion & OJ, & it was very, very tasty with the pork! Making an additional amount of the sauce is a great idea, especially if you enjoy having generous portions! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag]
