parmesan honey soy pork loin

This recipe is amazing!  I love cooking pork and this one is easy and so flavorful.  I did use a little more soy and a little less honey because I don't like my food to be sweet.  I also used beef stock for the glaze instead of chicken.  I did not add the sugar.  You could probably use a little less cornstarch also.  The thing that's great about this one is I have all of these items on-hand - no grocery store trip needed!

It is so tender it doesn't really cut but shreds.  It would make a great sandwich as well.  

9.1 edit - use a lot less cornstarch (1 tbs)
add some beef stock to the crockpot
