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 it’s picture . . . I promise that this recipe is delicious! My husband even said that this is one of his favorite Sunday dinners.


1 (2-3 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 (I also made mashed potatoes and the gravy was delicious on them!).

    This looks and sound delicious. I will definitely give this a try. That dark brown sauce it makes looks incredible and I suddenly have a large amount of Parmesan on my hands so I can’t wait to give this a go. Thanks so much for posting and great photo too!

      I used a 4 pound center cut pork roast bone in. I cooked it exactly 5 hours and it smelled great, tasted good but was so tough! Like shoe leather? The internal temperature was 160 degrees?

        Could have been your cut of roast. The post says cook for 6 to 7 hours on low. Not sure if you cooked it on low or high.

        160 degrees F is actually an old temperature recommendation. 145 is the temp considered to be safe for pork. I know my crock pot cooks a bit faster than most, so checking the temp often is really helpful. The first time I made this, I cooked it too long and on high for awhile and the honey burned. I tried it again and cooked it on low for much less time (checking the t
