Crockpot Brown Sugar Ham

March 31, 2015
A whole ham, rubbed with brown sugar, horseradish, mustard and cola slow cooks in your Crockpot for the best, most moist ham ever!

If you couldn't tell already from this little ol' blog of mine, I'm mainly a skillet or casserole dinner type cooker. That is to say, very rarely do I cook a big hunk of meat with side dishes for dinner in this house. 

It's not that I don't enjoy meals like that, I definitely do. It's just that to have everything hot and ready on time to be eaten together requires too much brain power on my part! Of which I am seriously lacking recently. I swear, with each pregnancy, a certain amount of brain cells die. I'm forgetful, can't find the right words in the middle of the sentence, walk into a room SEVERAL times a day and forget why I'm in there... sheesh. The things we moms do for children!

So clearly I like to put the whole dinner in a dish, bake it and serve!

I have to say though, ham is one of those meats that I could eat any day of the week. And there truly is nothing quite like a home made whole ham - yum! It's just mouth watering. 

I scored an awesome deal on this ham at our local grocery discount store (Aldi), but this week with the Easter sales I'm sure you'd find a cheap ham as well. Be aware of the shape of your Crockpot, mine is oval and it allows for a larger ham because of the shape. Round slow cookers may only hold a 3-4 lb ham - which is still plenty to feed a family of 4!

Crockpot Brown Sugar Ham

  • 3 - 6 lb fully cooked ham
  • 2 tablespoons, plus 1/4 cup cola
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground mustard
Cooking Directions
  1. Place ham in the bottom of a slow cooker.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons cola, brown sugar, horseradish, and ground mustard. Spread over the surface of the ham.
  3. Pour remaining cola along the sides of the ham. Cook on low 5-6 hours.
  4. Slice and serve with juice from slow cooker.

This is honestly the perfect dinner for Easter Sunday! Plus, you have plenty of time to prepare the side dishes while the ham cooks away in the Crockpot, leaving plenty of needed oven space.

Here are some of my favorite side dishes to go with ham:

Homemade Creamed Corn in the Crockpot

Holiday Pineapple Stuffing

Sweet Vinaigrette Asparagus and Tomatoes

    I love to use my slow cooker for ham (especially on the holidays). It's just SO easy! This brown sugar version looks delicious!

    Me too Blair - but then I think, why don't I do this more often because of how easy it is, haha!!
