Orange Marmalade Pork Loin

Last week, I used orange marmalade in the BBQ meatball recipe.  Of course, I had to buy a whole jar just for the half cup I needed for the meatballs, so I tried to come up with a way to use the rest of the jar.  I had planned on cooking a pork loin in the crock later that week and I had an idea that I could use the marmalade on that.  It worked great!  It was so easy and really good.  You can see from the photos of the finished product below that the orange flavor really soaked into the meat, but it was not over-powering at all.

4 lb pork loin

1 cup orange marmalade

1 cup orange juice

seasoning salt & black pepper to taste


Sprinkle the roasts with the seasoning salt and black pepper on both sides.


Pour the orange juice in to the bottom of your slow cooker.


Place the roasts in the cooker and spread the marmalade on the roasts to cover the tops of them.


Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.  The meat will be so tender that it will try to fall apart when you are taking it out.  Yum, yum!
