Hosting a big get together and need to save space in the oven? This great idea for Slow Cooker Ham yields excellent results and takes up no oven space because you cook it on the counter in the CrockPot!
Recently I discovered that Costco sold a boneless ham year-round, and since then I’ve been sold. My family loves ham and we love having leftovers to add to sandwiches, Mac n cheese, breakfast burritos, or just by itself.
My ode to boneless ham continues… I love the fact that you can slice it however you want and don’t have to deal with a bone to cut around. Moreover, you can make ham cubes, perfect for scrambled eggs. But if you can’t find boneless ham, bone in spiral cut will work as well.

The glaze is great and super easy too. Only three ingredients and items you most definitely have on hand already. It’s all pure deliciousness with this slow cooker ham recipe!
To cook, just set the ham in the slow cooker. Brush on the glaze and cook on low for 5-7 hours, depending on the size of the ham. You want the internal temperature to reach 140-145 degrees.

Slow Cooker Ham with Brown Sugar Glaze
- 1 boneless ham I use the Kirkland brand
- 1/2 cup brown sugar

- Spray the inside of a slow cooker with cooking spray. Remove ham from packaging and place in slow cooker set at low heat. Make the glaze by combining the brown sugar, dijon, and vinegar in a small bowl. Pour over the ham. Cook ham at low heat for 5-7 hours or until thermometer reads 140 degrees.
So if you’re hesitant to cook in your slow cooker or Crockpot, I say give this a try, you’ll be amazed what that crockpot can do!
