Alan's Favorite Recipe

Last night I asked Alan to tell me which one of my recipes he likes best. He said that I make some mean spaghetti, but he also ask that I not tell that recipe. He claims it is a family recipe that should not be shared since it is a recipe that has been passed down from his Italian grandmother. It's not that hard, so one of these days I might share with you the gist of how to make it without giving everything away. That would be okay, right?

Anyway, his other favorite recipe is Dijon Pork Roast with Cranberries. It is great anytime of the year, but to me it has that "holiday" flavor and pairs well with casseroles and other "cold weather" dishes. My absolute favorite thing about this recipe is that it takes 10 minutes or less to put together! AMAZING!

Honey Dijon Pork Roast with Cranberries

1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 boneless pork loin roast (2 to 2 1/2 pounds), trimmed of excess fat
2 tablespoons honey dijon mustard
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1 1/3 cups french fried onions, divided
1 cup dried cranberries

  1. Combine first three ingredients and sprinkle over roast and then place in slow cooker. Mix together mustard, honey, and orange peel and pour over roast. Sprinkle 2/3 cup french fried onions and cranberries over the top of the roast.
  2. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours (or on HIGH for 2 to 3 hours).
  3. Remove pork. Skim fat from the sauce in the cooker. Slice meat and server with sauce and another sprinkling of french fried onions, if desired.
