Slow Cooker Parmesan Honey Pork Roast

Slow Cooker Parmesan Honey Pork Roast

So I have a confession….this is the first time in my life that I have cooked pork.  I mean, sure I’ve cooked bacon and heated up hot dogs, but actual pork roasts, chops, or ribs I have never ventured to try. We never really cooked with pork in my house growing up so I’ve always been a bit uncertain about it.  Well after seeing how inexpensive it was, and finding this delicious recipe on Six Sister’s Stuff, I had to give it a try.  It was amazing!!  The pork was fall apart tender and the sauce was so flavorful!  It was excellent with a side of mashed potatoes.

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp olive oil
