Perfect Parmesan Pork Roast

Sunday is the perfect day for a roast.  And who doesn't like a good roast?  It's easy, makes the house smell wonderful, you can take a nap while it's simmering, and it makes awesome leftovers.  What more could you want?! I have tried a lot of pork roasts in my time, and I really love the flavor of this one!  I hope you will too!  ENJOY!
1 boneless whole pork loin roast (4 pounds)
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

Cut roast in half. Transfer to a 3-qt. 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 5-1/2 to 6 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and meat is tender.

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.
