Recipe Thursday

See, I told you I would get back into the swing of things :P

Today is ....

Pineapple Cranberry Pork Roast
...and it is made in the crockpot!

1 (3 pound) pork roast
1 20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained
1 (1 ounce) packet dry onion soup mix
1 cup dried cranberries
2 Tablespoons flour
3 Tablespoons water

Place pork roast in a 6-quart crock-pot. In a medium bowl mix pineapple, dry soup mix and dried cranberries; pour over roast. Cook on low heat setting for 8 hours or high heat for 4 hours. Remove roast to serving platter and increase heat to high (if necessary). Whisk together flour and water and blend into pan juices; cover and cook for 15 minutes. To serve slice roast, whisk pan gravy to blend well and serve with sliced roast.

Notes: This is a nice change from the usual pork roast. The pineapple and cranberries really accent the pork roast and make a nice, chunky sauce for pouring over mashed potatoes or egg noodles.

Number of Servings: 8 - 10 pts per serving

non pork eater (dont like it--no other reason:))
would turkey breast work?!

I don't see why chicken or turkey wouldn't work. I have another recipe that is chicken with cranberries and apples together (which is to die for) :)

OH BTW, not sure what your other comment meant re: that study? If so, it's legit.

Yummy! Thanks for sharing! I have some chicken breasts just screaming to have something done with them. May try this out on them.

Have a super day!

This sounds delicious, and I just happen to have all the stuff at home, will have to try it soon!

No, I have had at least a headache almost everyday since I started them, and a migraine most days. I am trying to be patient. He told me it could take almost a month to get used to them.

Some days I eat less, but for the most part it hasn't helped my appetite as much as I had hoped. I have really wanted sugar. I cannot drink anything carbonated, which sucks, no beer, no pop. I'm adapting slowly, I like parts of it, I don't like some parts of it...

Any news on 6-pack?

I feel like I'm stalking your comments, I hope you have some "contact" with him this weekend;) Good luck and have fun.

I think you'll hear from him sooner than you expect, sounds like he's a nice guy. You deserve happiness. If you haven't heard from him by Monday, he may wonder why you haven't called him yet? Go get em girl!
