Cranberry Pork Loin

The husband picked out our meals last week. We had bought a pork loin at the store and he loves cranberry and pork together.  Which is exactly why he picked this recipe. I made it in the crock pot just as directed.  A few times through the day I basted the pork to make sure the meat remained moist and didn't dry out.  But don't do this too much or you'll let too much heat out of the crock pot.  Anyway, this meal was good for dinner but absolutely AMAZING the next day for lunch.  Letting the meat marinate in all the juices overnight made the world of difference. Overall, another recommended crock pot meal.  

I know I took a picture of this dinner but can't find it.  I still had to share because it was just that good.
