"One of my favorite pork roast recipes, and may also be made successfully cooked in the oven at 325 degrees F, if you like lots of gravy then double the cranberry sauce and French dressing"

Using a strainer separate the dried onions from the dry powder; place the dry onions in a small bowl
Heat about 3 tablespoons oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Rub the roast all over with 2 tablespoons oil or more if desired, then season the pork loin with the onion soup powder, black pepper and garlic powder.
Brown the roast on all sides in hot oil then allow to cool slightly or enough for easy handling if stuffing with the garlic cloves (if your cloves are very large I suggest to slice in half).
Make small slits all over in the roast, then stuff with garlic cloves (this is only optional).
Place the roast in the slow cooker.
In a bowl whisk the French dressing with the cornstarch until smooth then add in the cranberry sauce and dried onions; mix until combined.
Pour the mixture over and around the pork.
Cover and cook on high setting for 4 hours or on low setting for about 7-8 hours or until the pork reaches internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
