I’ve been slacking a little in the Foodie Friday department, but I’m here today with a delicious Parmesan Honey Pork Roast recipe. I’m not a huge pork roast fan, mainly because I think it can be cooked badly. But this is not one of those recipes.
I made this Parmesan honey pork roast for Father’s day and my dad came over to have dinner with us. I got it cooking a little later than I should have but it really cooked up nicely and tasted delicious. After just about 5 hours it was so tender and the thermometer read perfectly. Travis was talking about me making it again after just a couple of bites! It was a huge hit for everyone in the house, even the 1 and 3 year olds.
Before I added the gravy it was already looking delicious! I was curious how the Parmesan and the honey were going to do together but it really made for a sweet and savory flavor.
Recipe: from Six Sister’s Stuff
1 (2 pound) 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
1/4 cup cold water
Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place roast in slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the cheese, honey, soy sauce, basil, garlic, oil and salt; pour over pork. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160°.
Remove meat to a serving platter; keep warm. Skim fat from cooking juices; transfer to a small saucepan. Bring liquid to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Gradually stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Slice roast; serve with gravy
