Crocked Ham, Slow Style

Thank goodness for recipes like this one.

A busy week means consolidating some of the cooking time as well as simplifying mealtime planning.

Sliced ham with veggies tonight.
Ham and cheese grilled sammies later,
southern ham and potato frittata for the weekend...
yup that's three meals down and still a lot of left overs.

Crocked Ham

1/2 cup of brown sugar
with enough bourbon to moisten
Stir in:
1 teaspoon coarse grain mustard
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish, pressed dry
and rub all over a 3 to 4 pound ham.

Place in a slow cooker and cook on high for an hour. Add a can of cola and cook on low for 6 hours.

Remove if desired and glaze with drippings in a hot oven for about 20 minutes to caramelize the outer layer.

Nothing could be any easier. Well, maybe ham biscuits the next morning for a quick git-up-and-go...


  1. Oh my gosh, Drick! I saw this picture and started drooling right away. It looks absolutely amazing. I especially love the thought of removing it from the slow cooker and caramelizing the glaze in the oven. It's beautiful. :)

  2. What a glorious way to make ham. I'd love this in a biscuit!

  3. Fantastic! Love ham. Never knew that you can cook it in slow cooker though. Thanks. The ham looks so succulent. Yum.

  4. And again, I am so glad I started eating meat agin!!! So many yummy dishes with this one!

  5. Multi-purpose...I like that! Bourbon, mustard, horeradish, brown that too!

  6. What a great recipe! I've never cooked a ham in a slow cooker, but I will be, very soon! Looks scrumptious and the glaze sounds divine! One for the Drick file, for sure!

  7. Cook once eat often; that's what I'm talking about!

  8. Love this, drick!! I bet the aroma in the house would be delish, I had never tried to make a ham in the slow cooker, thanks!!

  9. ::Drool:: this looks absolutely delish! Love the beautiful glaze, I could so dig into this right now. There isn't a recipe on this site that doesn't make my mouth water lol Have a good one! =]

  10. I love it did you say there was ham with the Bourbon? lol just joking I love bourbon in ham there is no other way! this is perfect!

  11. As always your rubs amazing to try this one out :)

  12. I believe you just saved my bacon, so to speak. I have a ham for our New Year's Eve dinner, but the bottom element in my oven just burnt out. I can't get a replacement part just yet, so was considering how to do the ham. We are experiencing gale-force winds and rain right now, so the bbq is not an option.
    I've just found your recipe, which sounds wonderful, and I can just pop the ham under the broiler briefly to glaze.
    Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!!!

  13. Is this a bone-in ham? Or spiral or sliced? Looks delicious!

      either one would do, but I used a small bone in ham... something about having a hambone left over, ya know
