Crock-Pot Brown Sugar Pineapple Ham for the Holidays

When my husband requested baked ham for our Christmas in August celebration, I knew I wanted to make a tasty version for him, but since I had a huge dinner to make on my own, I wanted to make it as easy as possible. So, as it often does, my Crock-Pot came to the rescue!
You are going to love this brown sugar and pineapple crusted ham. It's so tender it just falls apart and the best thing- just throw it in the Crock-Pot for six hours and forget about it!
I created these delicious Leftover Holiday Ham Baked Sliders with my leftovers from Christmas dinner including this Crock-Pot Ham, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. Check out the recipe here and let me know what you think!

Check out my cooking video here!


Ingredients

Use a large or approx. 6-quart Crockpot.
  • 1 Ham, pre-cooked, spiral cut {can use bone in or boneless} 
  • 3 cups brown sugar
  • 1 20 oz can pineapple tidbits or chunks, undrained

Directions

  1. Cover the bottom of the Crockpot with brown sugar.
  2. Place ham on top of the brown sugar and add the pineapple tidbits with the juice. 
  3. Sprinkle ham with remaining brown sugar.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
 
I found this delicious spiral ham at Sam's Club. 
I have used ham anywhere from 3-7 lbs for this recipe. 
Lay a base of brown sugar on the bottom of the Crock-Pot. 
 
 Place your cooked ham on top of the sugar.
 Pour a can of pineapple tidbits with juice on top of the ham. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
 
 Look at this juicy, sweet ham!
This is going to be a recipe I use for many holidays to come.
This ham made my Christmas in August dinner a lot easier and my husband
 is still raving about the delicious ham!

  1. I came across your recipe today looking for a ham glaze that doesn't include mustard. I'm trying something similar to this, except not in the crockpot. Wish me luck!

    3. I'm not a very experienced cook , but i have a question about a Pre-Cooked Ham & 6 - 8 Hours time in the Crockpot / Slowcooker. Would this not dry the Ham Out ?

      Delete
    4. No, the brown sugar and pineapples make a nice glaze the you baste over the top of your ham . The ham stays moist. And the crockpot is on low..
      Any more questions, just ask. We were all novices at first.

  5. You put bone-in in the ingredients but the SAMs club ham you used is boneless. Is there a difference in Cook time or method?
    Thank you

    1. I noticed that, too!

      Delete
    2. Hello! Sorry about that! No difference at all. The first time I cooked it I used a bone in and the second time {with the main photo} I used boneless. I have updated the post.

      Delete
    3. If I use a whole boneless ham will the flavor get into the ham? Or should I have it sliced and then tie it together so it doesn't fall apart. That way the flavor will be able to get into the ham. Also, we like honey ham so if I put some honey in there will it get a honey flavor as well?

      Delete
  6. I was wondering how you got the nice crusty outer shell on the ham. Did you bake in oven at 375 for 15 to 20 mins, or does it get that way just "sitting"? Also, I don't see the previous comments about "no bone" in ham! What am I missing?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello! I sprinkle a little extra brown sugar on top of the ham like in the pictures. The crust forms in the Crock-Pot. I have also updated the post. You can use boneless or bone in ham. I have tried both.

    3. EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    4. People need to think back to the first time they tried something new. A ham is not cheap, so you don't want to ruin it. What's wrong with asking questions if it's not clear to YOU? This is what's wrong with the internet---it's full of people who can't wait to put others down.

      Delete
    5. Sure, absolutely no problem with asking questions that haven't been addressed, either in messages or recipe text and/or pictures. Please just make sure that you watch the video, read the text, etc. Let's remember that others are spending their precious time posting these recipes and have included quite a lot of information in order to help us re-create them. Let's invest OUR time in reading and watching...creating an investment that in the end, produces something good and positive. While I agree that we can sometimes be too sensitive, I also feel that we tend to want others to do most of the work while we just reap the benefits. Nice recipe! :)

    1. I make my ham every year with pineapples and brown sugar, but never in a slow cooker. Gonna give this a try this year so I can just put it in there and not have to worry about it. Good idea! God bless ��

  10. This looks amazing. My husband doesn't like pineapple but this just mainly makes it juicy and doesn't have the taste of the pineapple correct?

    1. Yes, the pineapple and brown sugar make a nice sweet glaze and cooking liquid but it is not a strong pineapple taste.

      Delete
    2. You probably could use orange juice instead of pineapple, if you don't care for pineapple.

      Delete
    3. I've have a similar recipie..I use coke instead of as much brown sugar, so you could use coke instead of pineapple...which also will give it that same tenderness the pineapple does. Root beer is a good soda to use too.

      Delete
    4. Couldn't I use straight pineapple juice without the tidbits/chunks?

      Delete
    5. Yes, but the chunks are such a good treat

      Delete
    6. I always use apple or orange juice instead of pineapples.

      Delete
    7. any acidic fruit will tenderize meat from what I've been told.

      Delete
    8. I like adding apple sauce to my glaze when I cook ham, you could try that instead. It blends well with the brown sugar, since he doesn't like pineapple.

    1. Hard to say- depends on the size of your ham. I would say on average they are 5-6 lbs so about 12-14 people? A little less if using bone in ham.

  14. i hate to be a spoil sport but a browned crunchy coating on a ham like the one in the cover photo can not be obtained by cooking solely in a slow cooker. The boneless ham does appear to have been cooked in a slow cooker with pineapple as it is paler without brown crust. A skillet, hot oven, grill or broiler is required for significant browning. The liquid from pineapple tendsto prevent crunchy browned crusts.

    1. I assure you I cooked this ham only in my slow cooker with sugar rubbed on top like the picture. I took the final picture right after I took the lid off. It sure is one good lookin ham!

  32. I have been doing my hams like this for years. I just haven't tried it in the crock Pot but have done so in the oven. I have used both regular and pre-cooked hams, sliced and unsliced. If you want a little bit of spice added to it my mother use to use ...brown sugar, pineapple rings( 4 - 8 depending on ham size) , stud the pineapple rings with 3 - 4 whole cloves per ring and for a little added taste and color a maraschino cherrie in the center of the pineapple rings. bake this way about 4 hours or more or if you like you can us a crock pot as with the other recipe.

  34. How about I explain a bit about ham... Ham starts out as pork. Technically, it comes from the leg/thigh but people make ham from other parts of the pork too... I make my own from the loin (think: unsliced pork chop). To turn pork into ham, it must be cured and oftentimes smoked. When I make it, I cure my loin twice, once in a wet cure which is basically salt, sugar, hot sauce and water. It sits in the wet cure for 48 hours. Then I remove it, dry it, and coat it in salt and pepper. I put it back in the fridge for at least 72 hours. I then take it out to my smoker and smoke it with applewood for 2-4 hours. By then, it's fully cooked. There is an art to curing and everyone does it different but those are the basics.

      Delete
  37. Ham in pictures seems to be placed in crockpot cut side down, but a good portion of the ham is not submerged in the pineapple juice, so I'm guessing that during the cooking process, the exposed portion of the ham will absorb the juice, and remain moist and juicy, and NOT end up dry and tough. Just wanted to make sure I was understanding this correctly, due to the fact that I didn't see any other comment in reference to this. Thanks.

  46. You can adjust the amount of brown sugar according to the size of your ham. In a bowl mix about a cup of brown sugar, pineapple juice from a can of pineapple rings, ground cloves (about 1tsp or so according to your taste preference), and Kentucky Bourbon. Secure pineapple rings to ham and brush the glaze all over the ham and bake accordingly. Easy and delicious.

  57. In the picture you show your ham and state it is 3 lbs. A 3 lb ham is quite small and most hams I see for sale are between 6-8 lbs. In the comments I see people refer to Hams around this size, and I even read a comment where you mentioned using a 7 lb. ham. Is your recipe specifically for a 3 lb. ham? Should I double it for a ham twice the size? I have a 6 quart crockpot. I am assuming a 6-8 lb. ham can fit in that without problem. I would like to do this for Thanksgiving. But I want to make sure I get it right.

    1. Hi Diane. I have updated that. The first time I made this I used the Sam's Club smaller 3 lb ham. However, the last few times I have made it I have been cooking for many more people so I used between 5-7lb hams. All fit in my biggest Crockpot and I used the same amount of sugar and pineapple b/c the ham itself has a lot of juice too. It always comes out tender and with a nice crust!

  64. My family isn't fond of pineapple and we were wondering what we would need to change if we just want the brown sugar and the ham? Can I just put it in the crock pot like that or do I need to add something else so it will still be nice and juicy? Thank you!

  65. My daughter requested this recipe, as she does not like turkey. I just set the 6 hours on the Crock Pot and we can't wait to try it this afternoon! Thanks for such a great and easy recipe :)

  66. Just tried the crockpot ham and pineapple recipe. I added some maraschino cherries to the recipe as they are a family favorite. After putting it in the crockpot overnight and setting my clock for 6 hours to wake up to a delicious smelling ham; Oh wow! It taste GREAT!!!Easy recipe to use without the hot heat of the oven. Thank you for sharing.

  67. Dang my ham is to tall for the crock. Do you think aluminum foil will hold the steam in?

  68. This ham recipe did not come out as pictured. The flavor was good, 6 hours as too long and I never got the sugar crust although I followed the directions.

  69. I was so excited to try this recipe to complete my Thanksgiving dinner this year. I followed the recipe to the letter, cooking it for 6 hours, the ham turned a very dark color and was completely dry. What could have gone wrong?

  70. I made this on Thanksgiving. 9lb spiral in 6qt crock pot. Tough time making it fit! Mine did not get the crusty browness on top but boy oh boy was it delicious! Pretty sweet tasting though if you like ham that way. I'm not sure why it's done in a crock pot, maybe to free up the oven if you don't do it ahead? It seemed to me baking in the oven would produce the same results. Question: Is it to be basted at all during cook time? It could have been more moist.

  79. I used your recipe for my writers group holiday party. Thank you! Everyone raved about the ham. I'm going to clear out my freezer and buy a lot of spiral hams when they go on sale after the Holidays. This ham recipe is going to be my main main from now on.

  82. Hi, Norway calling! Preparing for Christmas, and I bought a raw, brined ham. My American husband likes his ham made with brown sugar and pineapples, so this sounds like the perfect recipe, but never tried making it a crockpot. Would the time be sufficient for a raw ham too, or do I have to add more time? To me, 6hrs sounds like a really looooong time for a pre-cooked one, but then I'm no expert. Wouldn't want t ruin an expensive ham mid Christmas!

  83. How many servings did yours make?

  84. Looks good but I have never seen a crockpot brown any meat as dark as that.

  85. Hi I have a Smithfield hardwood smoked non precooked ham will this recipe work with this ham? I have a lot to cook and this would be wonderful to try I've never done a ham in the crock pot before.

  86. I tried this last week in preparation for Christmas, I struggled with how salty the ham came out, I felt like the juices ran out and the salt stayed behind, would love any tips to reduce the saltiness of it. We also found the ham to be very dry, I am not sure if my crockpot runs hot or not, but 4 hours was too much. I read on another site that using a Bone In non cut ham yields a less dry ham so I am going to try that.
