Beer-Glazed Ham

 Beer-Glazed Ham
Here’s a fuss-free way to “fancy up” your Easter ham that everyone will love. Explains Kim Ryon of Factoryville, Pennsylvania, “My motto is: Anything with brown sugar has to be good.” And this ham really is!
8 ServingsPrep: 5 min. Bake: 1 hour 40 min.


  • 1 boneless fully cooked ham (3 pounds)
  • 1 can (12 ounces) beer or nonalcoholic beer
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons ground mustard


  • Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of
  • the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Set aside 2 tablespoons
  • beer. Pour remaining beer over the ham. Bake, uncovered, at 350°
  • for 1 hour.
  • In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, vinegar, mustard and
  • reserved beer; spread over ham. Bake 40-45 minutes longer or until a
  • thermometer reads 140°, basting occasionally. Yield: 8 servings.
