How to Make Ham in a Slow Cooker


how to make ham in a slow cooker plus a yummy dr pepper ham glaze recipe insta pot, crockpot, pressure cooker


Every year I have the exact same issue, trying to prepare a holiday meal with one oven. I adore homemade rolls, perfectly cooked sides and a big, fat, juicy ham, so I don’t want to skip any of those recipes. The only problem is there just isn’t room to make everything and have it all hot and ready at the same time. So this year I am going to teach you how to make ham in a slow cooker.


I really don’t know why I didn’t do this earlier. And I have to beg you for just a moment to give this recipe a try. It’s glazed and though it’s hard to tell in the picture it’s actually really fantastic. Anyway, this recipe is super easy and if you’re looking for something a little more exciting you can always go with the southern ham that has an awesome glaze on that one too. All you do is prepare the ham like normal but then stick it in a slow cooker for 4 hours. That’s it! It’s all ready to go and you’ve had your oven free the whole time!
