Crock Pot Thursday: Cola Ham
Prep time: 10 mins
Total time: 7 hours 10 mins
  • 1 3-4 lb fully cooked boneless ham
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 TBSP mustard
  • 1 20 oz bottle Coca-Cola
  1. Lightly score ham in diagonal lines, first one way and then the other, to form a diamond pattern.
  2. Make a paste of brown sugar and mustard.
  3. Rub paste into ham on sides that have been lightly scored, and transfer it to slow cooker.
  4. Pour soda into bottom of pot. Don't pour it over the ham because you don't want to wash away the paste.
  5. Cover and cook on low 7 to 8 hours.

With ham, it's kind of hard to tell if the flavor is a result of the recipe or if it was already cooked in there... but this turned out great and was super easy! I bought a cheap boneless cut and my husband said he would eat it every day, so I guess it was pretty good. We made a baked sweet potato dish to go along with it, which was perfect.


We thought this meal was good but couldn't taste any bit of coke. I thought that this would make a nice glazed ham but really didn't. Would I make this again? Maybe, but I like the Pineapple Ham we made a while ago much better!


This was great! It was easy and the ham was unbelievably tender and moist. It made a regular chunk oh ham quite delicious.


I've always been skeptical of a recipe that calls for soda, but I'm a convert. This ham knocked our socks off, and I'll for sure make it again!
