Tuesdays At The Table - Parmesan Honey Pork Roast

Howdy!  Did everyone get a three day weekend?  From the looks of stores...it seems that way!  I had a few shopping adventures over the weekend.
On Sunday I went to a local furniture store and IKEA with my brother, JC and his girlfriend.  I scored an AWESOME deal in the furniture store's clearance center!!!!  A $700 chair for $217! Once we loaded up the chair (they won't deliver anything from the clearance center), we moved along to IKEA.  Where JC's girlfriend fell in love with an entertainment center.  Also a great deal - $229 for $99!  And...that's where skills in spacial relations came into play.  Of course, the entertainment center is the huge 6 foot x 5 foot model that comes in three boxes.  With about an hour of jostling, everything fit into my SUV.  Yet ANOTHER reason I'm so happy I drive a Tahoe!

Monday I spent some time with my fabulous (and newly engaged - go visit her blog!) cousin.  At Target I scored some cute curtains for my sun room on sale for $5.58! Then we communed with nature the yarn store.

OK, I'm babbling.  I'll get along to the recipe now.  Oh, but first...did you know I'm celebrating 500 followers with a giveaway?  Enter here. :-)


Parmesan Honey Pork Roast

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.

  6. I'm not normally a pork fan, but this sounds wonderful. I know my husband would be a fan of it too.

  7. That pork sounds delightful! I wonder if it will taste as good with chicken? I think I'm going to have to find out :) MMMM
