Crock Pot Parmesan Honey Pork Roast

So found this recipe through my friends cooking blog. It was a Pinterest find she made in her weekly menu. I thought it should delicious and the picture looked good so why not. I took it to my Mom's for supper and it was a success. I would make this again for sure....if I wouldn't I definitely wouldn't post it here.....

1 (2-3lb) boneless pork roast
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup honey
3 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp dried basil
2 Tbsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water

Spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place roast in slow cooker. In a small bowl combine everything BUT the cornstarch and water. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160ยบ.
Remove meat to a serving platter;keeping warm. Skim fat from cooking juices; transfer to a small saucepan. Bring liquid to a boil;cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Slice roast; serve with gravy.

** When I made this I could barely get the roast out of the slow cooker. I pulled it apart before putting on the plate and put the gravy on the table for those to pour on their own meat. It's so yummy!!!! Enjoy!!!!


  1. I'm assuming the Cornstarch and water are added to the gravy while cooking in sauce pan?
    thanks for posting these, Kathy! I have to go get a crock pot! I have one but it's too big for just us. How many people did these two recipes feed?


  2. Sounds good. I may try it with chicken instead of pork.

  3. I've got a roast in the freezer and I plan on making this recipe...sounds yummy!
