down and gave it a thumbs up! I found it here on the 'Made From Pinterest' blog. That's a great blog because they try-out stuff that they find on Pinterest and then they write a blog post about it! They give their readers the good and the bad results of everything they try!
This recipe was on their good list! And I totally agree with them! This recipe is made in a slow cooker and has simple ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen right now... boneless pork roast (I used boneless pork chops) grated parmesan cheese, honey, soy sauce, dried basil, fresh garlic, olive oil, and salt. That's it! This is a nice balance of sweet & savory! The basil adds another depth of flavor!
All the ingredients just blend so perfectly together! I didn't even thicken the sauce because it was so tasty! Who cares if it's not thick! But you can add a cornstarch slurry if you want it thick! This went perfectly with mashed potatoes and petit peas...it's a real yummer!
1 (2-3 lb.) boneless pork roast...I used bonless center cut pork chops
2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup honey
3 Tbls. soy sauce
2 Tbls. dried basil
2 Tbls. fresh minced garlic
2 Tbls. olive oil
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
If you want to thicken the sauce at the end, make a cornstarch slurry using:
2 Tbls. cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
Mix together, then add it to the boiling sauce and stir until thickened.
I liked the sauce without thickening it!
Spray slow cooker with non-stick spray or line it with a plastic slow cooker liner bag.
Place roast or pork chops in slow cooker.
In a small bowl combine all ingredients except for the slurry ingredients.
Pour over pork, cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until cooked through.
After fully cooked, if you want to thicken the sauce,
remove pork to a serving platter and keep warm.
Skim fat from cooking sauce and transfer to a small saucepan.
Bring to a boil, then add the cornstrach/water mixture.
Stir until thickened, about 2 minutes and serve over pork.
