This ham recipe is a pretty special one. It’s a slow cooker recipe, which isn’t particularly special, but it does make it a lot easier.
No, what makes it special is that it uses Coca Cola in the recipe, and it’s amazing! It really gives it a distinct flavor to the ham, and it comes out so nice and moist.
There’s nothing worse than dry pork products. Ugh. Shake ‘n’ Bake is why I thought I hated pork for so long. So dry and yucky.
Luckily for everyone, this recipe is moist, flavorful, and absolutely wonderful!
4-Ingredient Slow Cooker Ham
1 5-8 lb cooked ham, bone in
½ cup brown sugar, packed
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 12 ounce can of Coca Cola or whichever Cola you prefer
Place the ham in the slow cooker.
In a small saucepan, combine ¼ cup of the brown sugar, cola, and mustard over high heat. Bring to a boil and make sure the sugar has dissolved. Pour the mixture over the ham. If your ham is pre-sliced make sure some of the glaze goes in between the slices.
Take the remaining ¼ cup of brown sugar and sprinkle over the top of the ham.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours, basting with the cooking juices every few hours.
Remove ham from slow cooker and let cool a bit until it can be handled. Slice the ham and serve.
If not serving immediately, preheat the broiler and transfer the ham to a oven-safe baking dish. Brush with some of the leftover liquid and broil for about 5 minutes, glazing with additional liquid as preferred.
