Slow Cooker Parmesan Honey Pork Roast

Recipe by  

"It's hard to make slow-cooked food look pretty, and this pork seriously fell apart when I tried to take it out of the slow cooker, so don't judge this by its picture. I promise that this recipe is delicious! My husband even said that this is one of his favorite Sunday dinners. I also made mashed potatoes and the gravy was delicious on them. Use roast between 2 to 3 pounds."

  1. Prepare slow cooker crock with cooking spray. Lay pork roast into crock.
  2. Whisk Parmesan cheese, honey, soy sauce, basil, garlic, oil, and salt together in a small bowl; pour over the pork roast.
  3. Cook until roast is cooked completely through, 6 to 7 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Remove roast to a cutting board to rest a few minutes.
  4. Skim fat from the cooking juices; discard. Ladle remaining juice to a small saucepan; bring to a boil.
  5. Whisk cornstarch into cold water in a bowl until dissolved; pour into boiling liquid in saucepan. Cook the liquid, stirring frequently, until thickened into a gravy, about 2 minutes.
  6. Slice pork roast and serve with the gravy.

I browned the pork roast first. I cooked a 3 1/2 pd roast. Then added some water to the marinade because I felt it was too thick. Also added some ginger to the marinade. I cooked for 7 and that was too long. Would do 5 1/2 or 6. I also did not use all the liquid for making the gravy so you would not need to use the whole cornstarch mixture. Family said it was a keeper.

I didnt care for this but my husband did so I am giving it a 3. Odd thing is I usually like Asian sweet/ sour type dishes and he doesn't. My roast was 2.5 pounds. I cooked it on high about 4.5 hours. I felt like it was pretty dry. My husband suggested slicing it and putting it back in the gravy. That helped w the dryness. I also added onions and fresh mushrooms in the end. I made my gravy by adding to the crockpot vs using a separate pot. Gravy was fine that way.

This was yummy! I used just under a tablespoon of basil and a tad more garlic than called for. the gravy was spectacular - I have a hunch the leftover gravy would make a terrific a stir fry sauce.

Made this last night and was very disappointed. There was too much basil and it overpowered everything else. The sweetness of the honey combined with the parmesan cheese and basil, the flavors didn't seem to go together very well. Sorry, we did not like this dish.

I cooked a 2.5lb roast on low for 6 hours. That was too long so I will adjust next time. Other than that, the flavors were great!

I used a 4+lb pork butt roast (bone-in) without adjusting any other ingredients, and cooked on high for 2 hrs before I realized it was supposed to be set on low. Then cooked an additional 1.5 hrs on low and checked the temp. Internal temp was 165 so I turned it off - it was perfectly moist. Next time I will use half the honey - just a personal preference. The Basil was just the right amount but I love basil. I will use this recipe again. Thank you for posting!!
