Slow Cooker Glazed Ham Dinner Platter
1 Fully-Cooked Boneless Ham, Approximately 3 to 4 Pounds
1 Cup Orange Juice
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
1 Tablespoon Water
Martin’s Potato Rolls, for serving
Pour orange juice into a large (6.5- to 8-quart), oval slow cooker.
In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar, Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, and honey into a paste. Spread brown sugar mixture all over ham and place, flat side down, in slow cooker.
Cover slow cooker with lid and set to low. Cook ham for 3 to 4 hours or until the meat is tender and the internal temperature reaches 140°F. If desired, flip and baste the ham halfway through cooking time and again about an hour before ham is done. (Note: for larger hams, such as 7 or 8 pounds, increase cooking time to 4 to 6 hours.)
Once ham is done, remove to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm. Skim any fat and strain the juices from the crock pot into a saucepan. Place the pot on the stove over medium heat and bring the juices to a simmer. In a small bowl, use a fork to stir the cornstarch into the water to make a slurry. Slowly pour the slurry into the pot while whisking the ham juices. Allow the mixture to bubble and thicken for a minute or two, stirring occasionally. Add more slurry as necessary to achieve desired consistency.
Serve the ham warm, drizzled with sauce, alongside Martin’s Dinner Potato Rolls, mashed potatoes or stuffing, and a side of steamed veggies.
Tip: Use leftover sliced ham for delicious sandwiches on Martin’s 12 Sliced Slider Potato Rolls!
