Reviews for Slow-Cooked Ham
"This is a great recipe, fast, easy, very moist."
"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."
"Absolutely fantastic! My family asks for this often and my kids point out when ham is on sale in the grocery store! I usually freeze the leftovers and use them in all my casserole/egg bake recipes."
"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"
"Made this with a honey cured turkey breast and it was wonderful. Took it to a potluck and there was nothing left. If I make it again, at serving time, I might try to thickened the sauce and serve it over the meat. Thanks for another great recipe."
"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! "
