Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

I enjoyed this roast a lot when it was made for dinner and I enjoyed it a lot as leftovers.  I served it over rice and it was perfect.

I originally made this recipe in my favorite vintage slow cooker.  After I purchased my Instant Pot, I made it again.  Boy, was that slick!  I was able to brown the roast in the instant pot.  Then I turned on the slow cooker mode and cooked the roast.  It was late in the day and I didn't feel like finishing the recipe by thickening the sauce.  I placed a plate on top of the pot and put it in the refrigerator overnight.  The next day, I removed the roast from the pot and sliced it.  I placed the pot on the stove top, brought the liquid to a boil and made the sauce.  All in one pot!
