What’s For Dinner? Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Ham

  • Sharebar

Easy Slow Cooker Ham

A friend of mine asked for this recipe again a few weeks ago, and I’ve had ham on my mind ever since!  So I was thrilled when I saw Publix ham prices this week . . . we’ve got it cooking up in the crockpot right now.  This is just a simple, easy, go-to recipe that’s a wonderful warm treat this time of year, especially if you have lots of busy weeknight activities (and don’t want to really cook!)  I love making it and then enjoying it for several days after on sandwiches or even on top of a Chef Salad! 


Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Ham


  • 2 cups packed brown sugar Use $0.50/2 Domino Sugar Products 8/29/2010 RP Insert (exp 11/30/2010)
  • 1 (8 pound) cured, bone-in picnic ham Publix Semi-Boneless Ham Portion or Whole, Fully-Cooked, 1.79/lb Update – I found several Smithfield hams this morning priced at $1.39/lb. which are perfect – for $13.19 I have an ENORMOUS ham that I had to pull out my big crock pot for (and even then it took a little trimming to stuff that piggy in the pot!)  Now I have tons for dinner and I’ll be able to freeze the leftovers for quite a few more meals!


  1. Spread about 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar on the bottom of the slow cooker crock.
  2. Place the ham flat side down into the slow cooker – you might have to trim it a little to make it fit.
  3. Use your hands to rub the remaining brown sugar onto the ham. Cover, and cook on Low for 8 hours.

  1. I do a brown sugar ham in the crock pot like this except, using toothpicks, I hang pineapple slices on the top and sides of the ham. Then I pour the rest of the pineapple juice in around the ham. It adds extra flavor and is delicious.
