Confession time. I had to dust off the Crock Pot before I could make this Crock Pot Ham Recipe. I have a crock pot problem! I love them! I have (too) many of them! I forget to use them! Seriously, there are at least six different crock pots in this house and there is usually only two of us eating a meal. What emptynest couple needs six crock pots? Apparently, I don’t since I forget to use them.
Last week, I actually remembered to pull it out and try a Crock Pot Ham Recipe. I kept seeing these recipes all over my Pinterest feed, but was skeptical of putting a whole ham in the crock pot to cook. I am happy to admit that my skepticism was way off. This Crock Pot Ham Recipe is DELICIOUS!! Juicy, tender and all kinds of yum!
I opted to use a boneless fully cooked ham in my Crock Pot Ham Recipe. This recipe is based on a Pinterest Remake of the recipe posted by TheFrugalGirls.Com. This recipe was modified to fit our families preferences and I had to make a few ingredient subsitutions due to lack of ingredients.
For some reason I have a bad habit of going to the grocery store and not coming home with the items on my shopping list. The list is usually at home on the counter after I get to the store. (FAIL) Thanks to another botched grocery shopping trip, cherry juice was a substitue for the normal pineapple juice.
Crock Pot Ham Recipe
- 4 to 5 lb fully cooked boneless ham (make sure it will fit in your crock pot)
- 4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 cup [ineapple or cherry juice (I had to use cherry juice because I left the pineapple juice at the grocery store.)
Mix together fruit juice and mustard.
Place the ham in the Crock Pot.
Coat the ham with juice/mustard mixture.
You can add cherries or pineapples to top of ham, if you wish.
Place lid on Crock Pot and cook on high for 2 hours or low for 4 hours.
Check the internal temperature of your ham.
As soon as the food thermometer reads 165 degrees your ham is fully reheated/cooked.
Slice, serve and enjoy!

- Place lid on Crock Pot and cook on high for 2 hours or low for 4 hours.
- Check the internal temperature of your ham and it will be done at 165 degrees. This will prevent over cooking.
- Slice, serve and enjoy!
This recipe is absolutely delicious! You would think putting a fully cooked ham in the crock pot, might dry it out. No sir! The crock pot holds the moisture in doing its job perfectly.
I need to get better at this whole Crock Pot thing. When the kids were at home I used my Crock Pots all of the time. Now they just collect dust. This ham was so easy to make. It was juicy and had a lot of flavor. We cooked the whole ham, ate one meal and froze all of the leftovers for future meals. I like having the ready to serve foods in the freezer for easy meals. I am going to add “Get better at using the Crock Pot” to my to do list!
