Cranberry Pork Loin (Crock Pot)

I have a very yummy and EASY recipe to share with you all. As I have mentioned before I do a lot of scouring Pinterest to find easy meals that require minimal prep since I am also working full time and commuting a total of 3 hours a day to DC. I found a crock pot cranberry pork loin recipe that was originally posted onΒ Julie’s Eats and TreatsΒ that I highly recommend for a fall meal. It is delicious!

You could prepare any veggy and/or starch with it, but since I am all about having quick options, I chose to do one of those steam in a bag for 3 mins veggies. I will be making this again sinceΒ it was a big hit with DrH. Also, as it is important to have meals ready to go for the rest of the week, I shredded the leftover pork loin and put individual portions in to baggies for DrH to throw into his lunch bag.
