Cranberry Pork is pork sautéed in a sweet, tart, tangy, spicy sauce made with cranberries, red wine, and dijon mustard.
I had leftover fresh cranberries and a small pork roast to cook. I waited to long to start a slow cooker dinner. So I cut the pork into cubes or pieces and decided to do something similar to a sweet and sour pork, except this Cranberry Pork is not nearly as sweet as that.
This Cranberry Pork is one of those dishes that I created on the fly just with what I had on hand. The result was delicious. I love these types of recipes. Mr. Flavor Mosaic now wants me to make it again.
If you are tired of turkey after Thanksgiving and want something different, try this Cranberry Pork. It would work well with pork chops or pork tenderloin also. I actually wrote up the recipe to work with pork chops. The sauce would also work well with meatballs for a holiday party. Give it a try.
