Reviews for Slow-Cooked Ham
"Made this for the family at Easter, got rave reviews, so made again this week just for us! It's so simple and tasty, it's the only way I'll make a ham going forward. I was careful to cut across the grain, making every bite fall apart tender. It doesn't come out particularly sweet, I was using a Kentucky Legend ham, a honey ham or suchlike might turn out sweeter."
"The sweetness of the rub plays beautifully against the saltiness of the ham. Make sure you use the type of ham that's specified, or the texture may not be that good. I also think the lower cooking time is best. I also used Dr. Pepper instead of Coke."
"I have not tried this recipe as I just wanted to say that my mother worked at Sheppard Air Force Base during WW!!. I am still a Texan at heart. I lived in Wichtall Falls until I was 8 and then moved to Southern California. But, I am still Texan!!!!!!!"
"I have not made this but for the woman who asked what she could substitute for the cola and sugar is use Zevia Cola which is sold in most grocery stores, it is a soda made without sugar but made with Stevia and use Stevia Blend in place of the sugar. Zevia comes in several flavors and really does taste like regular soda. You can get Stevia Blend on the internet."
"This is a great recipe, fast, easy, very moist."
"Very tender and delicious, plus the fact that it is made in the crockpot makes it great for holiday meals since your oven is free for side dishes!"
"Good recipe. Ham was very moist and tender. Would like to find a substitution for the brown sugar and cola as I watch my sugar intake."
"I'm a fan of anything in the slow cooker, and 5 ingredients or less! A perfect Monday meal..."
"I've made this recipe with a bone-in ham and it is fantastic. I use the bone for bean soup a few days later and the whole family loves it."
"Best ham ever! This was my first time cooking a ham and cooking it in a crockpot. I wouldn't have it any other way! So tender and juicy. It was loved by ALL!"
"I used Dr. Pepper instead of a cola and it turned out great! About 5-10 minutes before i pulled it out I added some brown sugar on top. It was wonderful :)"
"This is the only way my family likes ham. I followed the recipe except I make a paste of the ingredients using a little Dr Pepper or coke (whichever I have on hand) and sit the ham on a bed of pineapple chunks."
"Well I replaced the cola with gingerale. I inserted approximately 15 whole cloves in the ham after I put on the glaze. I liked the recipe, but I liked my changes better.1 scrooge"
"I have made this recipe many times, except that I always pour the rest a a whole can of cola in the crock- pot. I got my recipe from a different source though. Everything else is the same. My family loves it this way. It's about the only way I make ham."
"This was the most tender, moist, delicious ham I have ever tasted. I used a 5.5 lb. ham, and only had to cook it on low for about 6 hours. It might have dried out, otherwise. Will use this recipe as-is for years to come. Thanks! "
