Slow Cooker Parmesan Honey Pork Roast

Slow Cooker Parmesan Honey Pork Loin Roast

I’ve got another yummy slow cooker recipe for you today.  I love using my slow cooker any day of the week but my favorite day to use my slow cooker is on Sunday.  We go to church for three hours on Sunday so I love to put something in the slow cooker first thing in the morning and then when we get home and are ready to eat about 3:00 p.m.  dinner or linner (lunch and dinner) is ready!  Sunday is suppose to be a day of rest and using the slow cooker helps it be more restful.

Slow Cooker Parmesan Honey Pork Loin Roast

This recipe uses a pork loin roast.  One of the things I love about pork is it relatively inexpensive so it is easy on the budget. My husband loves pork roast and since one of my girls is allergic to red meat so we eat a lot of pork.

This pork cooks on low in the slow cooker for about 6 hours and when it comes out it is so nice and tender and just about falls apart on you.  Before I put it in the slow cooker though I covered it with a mixture of parmesan cheese, honey, soy sauce, basil, oregano, garlic, olive oil and salt.

After  it is cooked, pull the meat out of the slow cooker and than strain your juices to make a yummy glaze for your roast.  I thickened the remaining liquid with some chicken broth with cornstarch mixed in.  Just heat up the mixture on the stove top until it thickens and forms a nice glaze.  I wanted mine a bit sweeter so I added 1 tsp of sugar to it.

It has great flavor and texture.  I served it with some rosemary roasted potatoes and a green salad and it was the perfect, easy meal for my day of rest!

    I always wonder when I see recipes for the crock pot – should the meat be thawed or put in frozen?

    Heather says:

    It’s in the crockpot now!!! Can’t wait to taste it. I used the grated parm cheese though instead of the shredded. That’s all I had. Forgot to buy the other. Hope it will work ok.

    I was just wondering, how would this be in the crockpot for closer to 9 hours. Will that be too long? If that’s too long, I may need to try this one on the weekends. It sounds fantastic.
