Slow Cooker Pork Loin With Cranberry Walnut Relish

xSlow Cooker Pork Loin With Cranberry Walnut Relish

I love to cook, especially during the holidays. Between family get togethers, my husband’s office party and my daughter’s school functions, I have a lot of folks to cook for. Over the years, I have learned to take the stress out of my holiday cooking by finding home-cooked recipes that don’t take hours out of my day to prepare.

This way my family enjoys a delicious meal and I get to hang on to my sanity! One of my most used small appliances is my slow cooker. I love to fill it, set it and forget it. While our food is cooking, I can focus my time on other tasks at hand like baking cookies for my daughter’s Robotics team and my husband’s office party.

We love pork and eat it often. My go-to brand is Smithfield®. Their Marinated Fresh Pork, which I buy from my local Food Lion, is perfect for any night of the week. Smithfield Marinated Pork products bring you “Real Flavor Real Fast” which means you can spend more time enjoying your favorite activities and less time in the kitchen! Our favorite is the Smithfield Marinated Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet. Oh my stars! The smell while it is cooking in the slow cooker makes my mouth water!

One of my favorite additions to many of my holiday recipes are cranberries. I could eat them every day. I put them in cookies, my Christmas bread, and my Cranberry Orange Walnut Relish. It is easy to make and has a perfect balance between tart and sweet.
