Have you tried the delicious Cranberry Orange Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin recipe yet? We had this the other night and I realized that I haven’t really shared this recipe with you guys yet!
I mean, I did list it in one of my 10 Crock Pot Make Ahead Meals post, but I didn’t really get into detail as to how delicious this recipe really is. It is seriously amazing!
Now, don’t be scared off by the ingredients in this recipe. The cranberry sauce, Catalina dressing and orange juice combine together for a very savory flavor.
Plus the pork tenderloin cooks up perfectly! It is so tender and juicy. Just delicous!
Anyway, let’s get to the Cranberry Orange Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin recipe. Trust me, it is very tasty.

How to make crock pot pork tenderloin:
First, put all of the ingredients in the crockpot. You can use frozen or thawed meat.
Just cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high 4-6 hours. It is really that easy. This toss and go recipe is realy quick.
We ate it with mashed potatoes and peas. We actually had some left overs this time and they tasted even better the next day for lunch.
It’s also really good with rice. Did you know that you can freeze rice? We love the cranberry orange sauce on rice and it’s really easy when you can grab the rice from the freezer.
Some easy veggie ideas include: Steamed Broccoli in the Microwave, Easy Roasted Asparagus Recipe and 10 Minute Roasted Zucchini Recipe.
If you are feeling fancy, garnish with orange slices. So pretty! It is also good served with a small bowl of cranberry sauce.
You need a good crock pot.
You’ll need a Crock Pot, obviously! Your Crock Pot doesn’t need to be anything fancy. I have a very basic one like this and it gets the job done well every time.
Another great tip is to use Crock Pot liners, too. I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather spend time playing with my kids after dinner then scrubbing the Crock Pot.
It’s also an Easy Christmas dinner recipe.
Looking for something new to make for the holidays? Try this delicious pork tenderloin. It is so easy and delicious for Christmas or even Thanksgiving.

It is the perfect holiday meal. You might just end up adding it to your Christmas recipes. However, it is certainly a recipe to enjoy year round. It is easy and delicious. My kind of recipe!

Wow, this was very tasty! Everyone went back for seconds. It makes a wonderful sauce. Definitely making this again. Thanks
Does this need to be cooked before place in the freezer. Or can I put it all together and then freeze to cook for a later day?
I usually place all the ingredients together in a freezer bag and then cook it on a later day.
Would a pork butt roast work out ok?
Yes, I think that would work great in this recipe.
what size can of cranberry sauce? This sounds SO delicious!
I used a 14 oz can for this recipe.
So delicious! Thanks for sharing!
