Finding the right slow cooker
For this recipe, you’ll need a good slow cooker. Did you know every one of us sisters uses a different slow cooker?
We’re all in different stages of life with different schedules, and because of that we need different things from our slow cookers!
Here are a few suggestions to take into consideration before selecting yours.
How big is your family? If you have a large family, we’d recommend looking at an 8 quart slow cooker so you can make sure your recipes fit all in one.
We love this 8 quart slow cooker. You can find it in a 6 quart size too!
What are your slow cooker needs? Do you need a self timer while you’re gone at the office all day? Or do the simple high and low settings work for your lifestyle?
Choosing the best pork roast
Finding the right pork roast can oftentimes be the most difficult part of making your meal! Here are a few things we’d recommend:
For this recipe, you will want to look for a pork loin or pork shoulder. These are the best cuts of pork for the slow cooker.
We’d recommend opting for a boneless roast. This makes slicing your roast after it’s cooked much easier.
Look for roasts that are red-pink in color. Steer clear of pale colored roasts or roasts with dark red spots.
Remember that fat marbling equals flavor! While you don’t want a roast covered in fat, some marbling is great.
HOW TO MAKE GRAVY from slow cooker drippings
I think everyone can agree, the best part of a roast is the gravy that comes from the delicious juices.
Here are simple step by step instructions on making gravy for your Parmesan Honey Pork Roast.
- After your roast has finished cooking, skim fat from cooking juices and transfer to a small saucepan.
- Bring liquid to a boil.
- In a separate smaller bowl, combine cornstarch and water until smooth.
- Gradually stir cornstarch mixture into the saucepan and bring it back to a boil.
- Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
