Crockpot Parmesan Honey Pork Roast Recipe

Crockpot Parmesan Honey Pork Roast Recipe

This pork roast recipe is another easy to assemble and walk away meal.  Just pop the pork in the crockpot and top it with the honey, Parmesan cheese mixture.  When you return hours later, you’ve got a moist pork roast that easily pulls apart.

The honey parmesan mixture gets turned into a thick sauce after the pork is fully cooked.  Just add a bit of cornstarch and water and it becomes almost like a rich barbecue sauce.  It has a great sweet and tangy flavor to it.

This recipe is very unique.  I’ve never tasted anything quite like it and was surprised you could get such a great sauce from grated Parmesan and honey.  And it makes the house smell amazing!  I could even smell it outside with the windows closed!

Barbecue Pulled Pork Sliders

Applebees restaurant has little barbecue pork sliders that are super yummy.  So the inspiration for this recipe comes strictly from them.  I’m usually not a pork or red meat eater but there’s just something so delicious about it once it’s slathered in rich homemade barbecue sauce.

I found a different barbecue sauce recipe to test out that’s based on ketchup and brown sugar.  It’s another winner!  It turned out sweet and tangy with just the right amount of zip.  Combined with the sweetness of the King’s Hawaiian honey wheat rolls I used, they were oh so yummy!

I find that using a crock pot to slow cook the pork works best for me.  I used around a 4lb hunk of pork this time but I divided it in half after it was fully cooked.  I’m using the other half of the shredded pork later this week for pork tacos.  That recipe will be coming soon too!

Crockpot Mexican Pulled Pork

This pulled pork recipe is very versatile just like my Salsa Chicken is.  These kind of crockpot meals are great for weekends when you have tons of other things to get done and you don’t want to have to be in the kitchen long.

All you have to do is put all the ingredients together and come back in 6 hours.  You still get a great home cooked meal without slaving over the oven all afternoon.

We ate this pulled pork in soft taco shells as the original recipe intended but you could use it many other ways.  It would also make a great topping for a delicious salad!

Crockpot BBQ Pulled Pork Sammies

bbq pulled porkI’m simply amazed at how good these darn pulled pork sandwiches turned out.  We’ve been buying all of our meat and chicken from Whole Foods lately.  I know it may sound absurd to some people, but I can tell the difference in their meats and poultry.  It’s so much more tender and cooks like a dream.

The pork in these sammies practically melted in our mouths.  It was so delicious!  I know we’ll have these again since they were practically effort free.

Sticky Chinese Pork

sticky chinese porkEasy, quick and delicious best describes this dish!  Of all the Asian cuisines, I’d have to say Chinese is my favorite.  The food in most Chinese dishes is prepared in bite-sized pieces, ready for direct picking up and eating.  Traditional Chinese cuisine is also based on opposites (yin and yang) whereby hot balances cold, pickled balances fresh and spicy balances mild.  Cantonese cuisine, from the South of China, is what most people from Western cultures associate Chinese food to be but it’s much more than this.  The regional cuisines of China is divided geographically to include:  Northern or Beijing (Peking) Cuisine,  Eastern or Shanghai Cuisine, Western or Szechuan Cuisine, and Southern or Cantonese Cuisine.
