Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Ham
My family loves to enjoy ham. While a ham can be pricey to buy, if you can get several meals out of it, it can become an affordable option. Making a Ham at home is significantly less expensive than buying one that is already cooked and ready to serve. I know it can be intimidating if you’ve never made one before, but it’s really not that hard, and the reward is a delicious meal! Many people enjoy eating Ham for major holidays, in fact, my Brown Sugar and Coke Glazed Ham Recipe is one of the most popular recipes on my site. I get many messages and comments asking if it can be cooked in the slow cooker to free up the oven, and it can be. Today, I’ll be sharing my recipe for Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Ham. This one can also be cooked in the oven if you’d prefer – just reference the cooking times on the ham you purchased, and bake it for the length of time that matches the size ham you bought. Once it’s done, pick this recipe back up when it’s time for it to BROIL the glaze. I hope you enjoy!!
Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Ham Ingredients
1 bone-in ham, smoked pork shoulder, 6 – 8 lbs, uncooked
¼ cup honey
¼ cup whole grain mustard, (can also use Dijon)
as desired salt and pepper
1 cup chicken broth (or water)
Remove the packaging and any paper bladders that might be included in the plastic, off the ham.
Give the ham a quick rinse and pat dry
If there is a thick fat cap (large area of fat and skin attached), with a sharp knife, carefully cut approximately ½ of the cap away from the ham. Do not cut too close to the flesh of the ham, as the fat cap adds extra moisture to the ham.
Place the ham in the slow cooker insert, fat cap side up, and add the chicken broth or water.
Cook the roast on low 8 – 10 hours or 4 – 5 hours on high.
Remove the roast after the cooking time is up and place on a baking sheet and turn your oven on to broil
Mix up the honey and mustard mix and baste the ham with the mixture. If you find the mixture is very thick, add a splash of water or broth to loosen up the mix slightly.
Brush on the glaze, covering the entire ham.
Place it under the broiler, and watch it closely. Broil for approximately 3 -4 minutes or until the top begins to caramelize.
Remove the ham from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
