First, its a freezer meal, meaning you just toss the ingredients in a bag, freeze and forget about it. Second, it only involves 4 ingredients, all of which I currently possessed in the pantry and fridge. And third, it was a crock pot meal, so not only did I get to prepare it in less than 5 minutes, I also had to do nothing but take it out of the freezer the night before and place it into the crock pot in the morning. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
- 2-3 lb. pork tenderloin
- 1 can whole cranberry sauce
- 1 packet onion soup mix
- 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
To Freeze: Combine ingredients in a zip-top bag and seal. Freeze for up to 3 months.
To Cook: Let thaw in refrigerator overnight. Place in a crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
If cooking from frozen, times may vary from 8-12 hours.
The cranberries made a crust of sorts on the pork which provided a tangy bite. I’d definitely make this super-simple recipe again.
