Slow Cooker Parmesan Honey Pork

Parmesan. Honey.  Slow Cooker.  Need I say more?   

Don’t be worried if you can’t find a tenderLION.  Pork tenderLOIN works well in this recipe, too, incase you didn’t catch my spoof..

Combine the soy sauce, honey, Parmesan, Italian seasoning, minced garlic, oil, and salt in a small bowl.

I probably could have gotten away with simply telling you to combine all ingredients but the pork.

But that might have been confusing.. you think?

Pretty sure this pork wouldn’t slice with the most delicate of hands.  It was shredding itself as I removed it from my Crock Pot.

So tender and smelled delicious.  I made a batch of truffle whipped potatoes.  I know you would agree that they look pretty yellow.  They were Yukon Gold potatoes.. plus bad lighting.  I can’t spell either.

On a roll today. 

At least I had a splendid dinner.  My brain is all kinds of messed up thinking about how good this was.  My excuse for the poor spelling..

Whatever you decide to pair this pork with, just make sure you are serving it with something to soak up the yummy sauce. 

I’m a sauce kind of girl, so anything worth mopping up with a slice of bread- or some kind of starch within arms reach, I’m good.  Tonight it was neon taters.

  1. Looks absolutely delicious. I love slow cooker pork. I’d probably do the rice match with it lol, but that’s just because I’m Asian and match rice with everything :P

  2. Yum! I have a pork roast in my freezer right now and I can’t wait to try this.

  3. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog. As someone who is struggling with losing the weight that I put on over the past 10 years, I love reading your recipes and seeing that you can eat flavorful food while not eating away all of your calories in one sitting. And BTW- I laughed out loud when I read “neon taters” Thanks so much for the blog!!

  4. Made this today and it was awesome! I used parsley instead of italian blend. The gravy also turned out awesome. I will make this again for sure!
