Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

The simple roasts are so savory. Add, garlic powder to any roast with an onion, carrots and potatoes. YUMMY!

Ingredients:

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. Slice roast; serve with gravy (I also made mashed potatoes and the gravy was delicious on them!).

Grilled Pork Burgers Are Fantastic

One of the newer products available is our ground pork. This is just like ground beef but is made with our pasture raised pork.

I know, I know what you’re thinking. That doesn’t sound appealing at all! Do you eat it like you would ground beef and just make a hamburger patty out of it? After all, the first part of “hamburger” is “ham”. You’re exactly right, that’s all you do and let me tell you, the finished product is absolutely fantastic.

Grilled Pork Burgers

I had my own reservations initially, but I grilled some for our family a couple of week’s ago and they were fabulous! I actually couldn’t even really tell the difference between them and a lean, ground beef. They were juicy, great taste and with the chopped up onions and hot peppers I had garnishing mine they were great!

Next time you’re at the Binford Farmer’s Market or Greenwood Farmer’s Market, be sure and ask Darby or Kim for a package of your own ground pork and head home to fire up that grill!
