Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork Roast Recipe
With the Christmas season being so close time can get a little crunched. At times like these I Love my Slow Cooker. This Slow Cooker Pork Roast recipe is just great. I was kind of surprised that the Onion Soup mix and Cranberries go together so well. It is just delicious. It produces a succulent gravy to serve over Mashed Potatoes. Enjoy
1 (3-3 1/2 lb) pork loin roast
5 tablespoons oil, divided (or use as much as needed)
1/2 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
fresh ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

8 garlic cloves (optional or use as many as desired, I use lots!)

1/3 cup French dressing

1 tablespoon cornstarch
