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.
Boneless hams come in all different sizes. If possible, try to find one that is on the small size and not so long, so that it can fit in your slow cooker. However, you can always cut the ham into two or three large pieces so it fits.
Slow Cooker Ham
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 make the glaze all you need is:
- brown sugar
- dijon mustard
- apple cider vinegar
Combine these three things in a bowl and whisk together. That’s it!
Spray the inside of the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Add in the ham, cutting into large pieces if necessary. Pour the glaze overtop.
To cook, set the slow cooker on LOW for about 3-5 hours, depending on the size of the ham. You want the internal temperature to reach 140-145 degrees. After two hours, check the ham every 30 minutes until ideal temperature is reached.
Let the ham sit for about 5-10 minutes before slicing. If desired, pour the leftover glaze and juices from the bottom of the slow cooker over the ham before serving.
