Tasty Tuesday-Parmesan Honey Pork Roast

It's that time again! Time for a delicious new recipe that is both quick and easy to make. I actually prefer when my food cooks itself, so how's about a slow cooker dish today? This is another great find courtesy of Pinterest. That site has been great for my taste buds, not so much for my waist line :) I cooked this for the hubby a few nights ago and it was ah-maz-ing. Even the gravy pretty much makes itself.

You'll need:

1 2-3lb. boneless pork roast

2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/2 cup of honey

3 tablespoons of soy sauce

2 tablespoons dried basil

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons minced garlic

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/4 cup cold water

Spray slow cooker with non-stick spray. Place roast in slow cooker. In a small bowl combine the cheese, honey, basil, garlic, soy sauce, oil and salt, then pour over pork. Cover and cook on low 6-7 hours until meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. Remove meat to a serving platter. Skim fat from cooking juices and transfer to a saucepan. Bring liquid to a boil, then combine cornstarch and water until smooth in a separate bowl. Stir into pan, bring to a boil, then stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Slice roast and serve with gravy.


  1. Oh yummy. This is going to my crock pot meal list. What did you serve it with?

  2. I served it with mashed potatoes (the gravy was yummy on those as well!) and baked asparagus
