Slow Cooker Pork Roast


This pork sirloin roast in the slow cooker is a very popular dish at our house, and it couldn't be easier! I tried this cut of meat when it was on sale, and I took suggestions from the back of the label and added a few tweaks (like making gravy).

Total Time:

  • 1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix

  • 1 (3 pound) pork sirloin roast

  • 1 (16 ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce

  • 2 tablespoons butter, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, or as needed

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Rub soup mix all over pork roast. Place roast in a slow cooker and pour cranberry sauce over top. Cover and cook on Low until pork is slightly pink in the center, about 8 to 10 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Transfer roast to a platter, reserving juices in the slow cooker.

  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Whisk in flour to form a paste. Pour in reserved juices from the slow cooker; cook, whisking constantly, until gravy lightens in color and thickens, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve alongside roast.


Instead of rubbing the roast with the onion soup mix and then adding the cranberry sauce, you can also just mix the onion soup mix with the cranberry sauce and pour the whole mixture over the roast.
