Easy Slow Cooker Recipe: Honey Parmesan Pork Roast!

Change it up from beef and try this pork roast with the easy honey Parmesan gravy. It is a beautiful thing – so easy, yet so delicious! Plus, slow cooked roasts are always so moist and tender.

I had a pork roast chilling in the freezer, so as soon as I saw this recipe I knew I needed to try it out. Parmesan and honey is a great combination! I already have all of the ingredients on hand – I wouldn’t be surprised if you do too. Super easy!

Honey Parmesan Pork Roast in the Slow Cooker

I love using disposable liners whenever I use my slow cooker now days. The food does not stick and the slow cooker is so much easier and faster to clean up. If you don’t have liners, it helps if you spray a non-stick cooking spray in the slow cooker pot before adding any ingredients. By the way, I use a 4-quart slow cooker for this recipe.

Place your pork roast in the prepared slow cooker, whisk together the sauce ingredients, and pour it over the roast. Let it cook on low for about 6 hours. Then you use the sauce to cook up the easy gravy – basically just boil and add dissolved cornstarch.

Slice up the roast and pour some of the gravy over the top. The honey Parmesan flavor of the gravy goes wonderfully with rice. Or you can serve it with potatoes, if desired.

Instant Pot Instructions:

Turn IP onto saute setting and sear roast on each side. Then add 1/2 cup water to the bottom of the pot, add your trivet, and place the roast on top. Cook on High Pressure for 15 minutes. Remove roast, triviet, and water from IP. Switch the IP back to saute, then add the ingredients to make the sauce.  Add the finished roast back to the IP, and put on high pressure for 2 minutes. Use a natural release, for at least 10 minutes or you’ll have a sticky saucy mess everywhere.

Prep Time: 10mins | Cook Time: 06hrs
Yield: 2 to 3 pound roast | Serves: 6-8 servings


  • 2 to 3 pounds boneless pork roast
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water


  1. Use a slow cooker liner or spray with cooking spray. Place the roast in the slow cooker.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the Parmesan, honey, soy sauce, basil, garlic, oil, and salt. Pour the sauce over the pork roast.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 160 degrees.
  4. Remove the roast and cover with foil to keep warm. Skim any fat from the sauce in the slow cooker, then pour the sauce into a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  5. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Gradually stir the cornstarch mixture into the pan with the sauce. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes or until thickened.
  6. Slice the roast and serve with the gravy sauce.
  7. Instant Pot Instructions:

  8. Add all ingredients and cook on meat setting, or if using another pressure cooker for 35 minutes at high pressure. Use Natural Pressure Release until done (about 15 minutes). If you use quick pressure release, you will have a huge sticky mess.
