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!

    Leigh Anne, we are the same way at our house… we LOVE pig! I love this easy pork recipe to put in the slow cooker all day. I use mine also all during the week….especially for a pork roast. I’m definitely going to try the way you made it, love the soy sauce you put in it! Pinning and printing off! Have a wonderful day, my friend. (=

      Yeah! Glad you enjoyed it Luanne. So glad you enjoy the recipes and make them. It keeps us connected even though we are now old ladies and miles apart! (Luanne and I were childhood friends for those who may wonder)

    You hhave sugar listed as the last ingredient. When do I use it? I’m excited to make tomorrow for company coming over. I love your recipes! And I love a slow cooker recipe too!

    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.

  5. Bobbi says

    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.

    I am a fussy eater and so is my husband. I am not keen on Pork but this really caught my eye…I have it on as we speak. Looks amazing!

    This was so good! I used maple syrup instead of honey because our honey is very floraly. It was perfect and went together great.

      • Jim says

        made this today. Really really good. One thing though, on the honey, it says 1/2 cup. Did you mean 4 oz or an actual 1/2 cup measuring cup? I bought an 8 oz jar of honey and it took the whole jar to fill the 1/2 cup. It did come out pretty sweet so didn’t add the sugar to the sauce on the stove. Wife actually loved the sauce but I really think it was too sweet.vi did cook it on high for about 4 hours so for those asking. Will make it again.

  8. Cara says

    Thank you so much for this amazing recipe! My husband says it tastes like he just dropped $100 on a fancy meal. I paired it with roasted rosemary potatoes & carrots. This recipe made our day & will definitely make it into regular rotation! :)

  9. Hannah Cox says

    Hi! I’m getting ready to try this – super excited! Quick question, do you put the fat side up or down?

    Thanks! :)

    Your photo shows shredded cheese. The recipe says grated. Using 2/3 cup actual grated cheese will (I assume) yield quite a different result as the two are not generally equal in taste when measuring amounts. I actually read the recipe when I made my grocery list, and purchased grated. Now preparing to make it tomorrow – and disappointed to see I should have gotten shredded.
    Hoping for the best as it looks great!

    Trying this with deer roasts today because, well, it’s deer season and we have a freezer full. It’s similar to a marinade I’ve used for deer before but the Parm and herbs add something different. Deer as with pork are both so good with sweeter marinades and sauces. Can’t wait till it starts to fill the house with delicious smells soon.

  12. stacey says

    I came across this recipe on pinterest… I have it in the crock pot now. I am really looking forward to tasting this yummy roast when I get home today! Thanks for sharing! I would love to have the recipe for the yummy looking potatoes you have in the photo.. if you don’t mind that is.

    Thanks

    I am mixing up the seasonings right now. My Hubby and I don’t like the premarinated pork loins in the store and I am in a deeply committed relationship with my Slower Cooker lol. and I love the parings of Honey and Parmesan so I am excited for tonight’s dinner (sides will be homemade garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli fritto)

    The first words out of my 16-year-old daughter’s mouth — “This is the best meat I have ever eaten!” I stumbled across the recipe quite accidentally last evening while looking over some other recipes on your site. I had two pork tenderloins defrosting in the fridge for supper tonight. I had everything I needed on hand (except basil — I substituted thyme and it worked very nicely). So simple. I may try subbing maple syrup another time I make this as another poster suggested.

  15. Christel says

    Hi this looks delicious! I was wondering if brown sugar would be a good substitute since I have everything to make this except the honey?
