Slow Cooker Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

All this recipe needs is hot mashed potatoes and a green veggie or salad to be a complete meal. While the combination of Parmesan cheese and herbs may sound odd, it makes a wonderful gravy (and as an added bonus, your house smells scrumptious while it cooks!).

Slow Cooker Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

1 (2-3 pound) boneless pork roast
 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
 1/2 cup honey
 3 tablespoons soy sauce
 2 tablespoons dried basil
 2 tablespoons minced garlic
 2 tablespoons olive oil
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 2 tablespoons cornstarch
 1/4 cup cold water

Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place roast in slow cooker. Combine cheese, honey, soy sauce, basil, garlic, oil and salt in a small bowl; 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 in a small bowl, stirring until smooth. Gradually stir into cooking juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Slice roast; serve with gravy.
