It is a wonderful recipe you can put in and enjoy for a great Sunday lunch with the family.
What I love about this recipe is that you can put the pork loin in the slow cooker on low and top it off with the cranberry glaze and then let the slow cooker make a fantastic meal. Plus, you can adjust the amount of pork loin needed based on the size of your family or if you want leftovers.

How To Make Our Cooker Cranberry Pork Loin Recipe:
When you are ready to prepare your pork loin, get out your slow cooker and prepare it by spraying it down with nonstick cooking spray.
Then, place the pork loin into the prepared slow cooker.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the whole cranberry sauce, worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and yellow mustard.
Mix the sauce together with a spoon until it is well combined and then pour the sauce over top of the pork loin.
Then turn the slow cooker on high for 4-5 hours or low 6-8 hours until the pork loin is cooked all the way through.
When it is done, remove the loin from the slow cooker and place it on a serving plate to slice it and serve it with your favorite sides.
If you want to make a gravy from the leftover juice and sauce, just add about ¼ -½ cup of water and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and then whisk it until the sauce begins to thicken up.

How Long to Cook A Pork Loin in the Slow Cooker
Cooking a pork loin can be a little tricky to try and decide just how long to cook the pork to get the perfect amount of tenderness, without overcooking the pork. The size of the pork is important to note. Small pork loins will cook fast, while bigger pork loins will take a while longer.
A general rule of thumb is to cook the roast for 2 hours per pound on LOW heat or 1 hour per pound on HIGH heat (you might have to adjust the time for high heat, depending on how your slow cooker cooks).
When you are ready to eat, just make sure that when it’s done cooking, your pork loin has an internal temperature of 145 degrees (you can test it with a meat thermometer).

LOVE your site~thanks so much!
You could cook it on low for 6-8 hours!
I think it would work fine if your pork was frozen. Just check that it is cooked thoroughly before serving! :)
