Roasted Pork Loin Recipe with Cranberry Apple Sauce

Traditional New Year's Day Dinner

My family loved this Roasted Pork Loin Recipe with Cranberry Apple Sauce. While eating pork is a Traditional New Year’s Day Dinner, this roasted pork tenderloin recipe can be cooked up at any time! I was in the mood for something different and I had to use up some apples. I did not have cranberries but this turned out just as tasty by substituting with a can of jelled cranberries.
