Slow Cooker Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

Thursday, February 27, 2014

Back into the cold depths of winter...or at least that's what it feels like when I step outside this week. The high has been hovering around 0 degrees, and the low has been dipping dangerously below 0. I'm beginning to think it is never going to warm up here! In the meantime, while I daydream of warmer days, there is nothing better than a warm meal from the slow cooker to help take off the chill.

I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest, and was pleasantly surprised at not only how little work it was, but how delicious the end product turned out. Typically, I tend to avoid pork. I'm not a pork chop or Iowa chop lover by any stretch of the imagination, and I find that more often than not home-cooked pork ends up being super tough, dry, or overly seasoned. (I do however love myself some pulled pork, or pork roast in a slow cooker). Yum. Yum. Yum.

Step One: Gather the ingredients.

Step Two: Combine ingredients for the honey parmesan glaze, and pour over pork roast. Make sure to lift of the edges so that the bottom of the roast gets coated as well.

Step Three: Set slow cooker to low, and walk away for 6-7 hours!

Step Four: Remove roast to a warm plate, slice, and tent with foil. 

Step Five: Skim the fat from remaining liquid in the slow cooker, and pour the juices into a medium saucepan over med-high heat. Bring to a boil. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstartch and water until smooth. Gradually whisk into the juices in the saucepan. Return to a boil for 2 minutes, or until thickened, making a glaze. Spoon glaze over sliced roast, and enjoy!

Recipe from Six Sisters Stuff

SLOW COOKER HONEY PARMESAN PORK ROAST | Yield: 6-8 servings | Total Time: 6.5-7.5 hrs


1 (2-3 lb) boneless pork roast
2/3 C Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 C Honey
3 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp dried basil
2 Tbsp garlic, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 C cold water


Line slow cooker with plastic liner, or coat with cooking spray. Place roast in slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine parmesan cheese, honey, soy sauce, basil, garlic, olive oil, and salt. Mix well. Pour over pork roast, be sure to lift the sides to coat bottom. Set slow cooker for 6-7 hours on low.

Remove pork roast from slow cooker to a serving platter. It will likely fall apart a little - that's OK! Heat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Skim fat from the juices; transfer to the saucepan. Bring to a boil. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and cold water until smooth. Gradually stir into the saucepan. Return to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Slice the roast into thin slices, and serve with honey parmesan gravy.
