You need to use whole berry cranberry sauce and cut out the cranberry juice. I used juice and jest of 1 whole orange.


I just made this recipe for the first time today. I saw this recipe and loved it and wanted to try, only to find after getting it going that it had such negative reviews but decided to go with it anyway. I followed the recipe to a T with the exception of adding some pepper and it was excellent! :) My husband and I LOVED it and our daughter did as well. It was tender (falling apart) and FULL of flavor. I used the jellied sauce like the recipe says. When I do pork roasts I tend to poke the meat all over with a fork before putting it in...this may be why mine had a lot of flavor as opposed to the others who tried it. All in all - excellent! Paired with some oven roasted potatoes, delicious! :)


This recipe is not what I thought it would be. It didn't really taste very good just a tad like clove and slight sweet taste. I wish it had more sustenance and was seasoned a little more. I will say that its very easy but I was definitely let down and so was my family.
