Slow Cooker Pineapple Ham is an easy and delicious dinner perfect for special occasions or any night. Smoked ham is cooked in pineapple juice, brown sugar and mustard and then glazed at the end for a sweet main dish.

Aside from sandwiches, we don’t really eat much ham.  It’s usually reserved for Christmas or Easter dinner. Even then I usually go with a spiral sliced ham. But thanks to this slow cooker pineapple ham recipe, we will be having ham more often.

Crock Pot Smoked Ham

I usually buy a pretty large ham when we’re cooking for a holiday.  The problem is that those large hams will never fit in any slow cooker I own. I happened upon small 3-4 pound applewood smoked hams at Costco. They are perfect for a slow cooker.

I actually thought I’d need to cook this in a 2-3 quart slow cooker, but it was bigger than I thought. I ended up using a 6 quart slow cooker and it still barely fit.

The ham is already cooked so really you are just heating it up and adding flavor. I cooked it for 1 hour on high and then another 6 hours on low. I felt it was a little over done so next time I’ll start peaking in at 4-5 hours.

Pineapple Juice Ham Glaze

I used pineapple juice in the ham glaze.  You could also drain a can of pineapple or substitute orange juice if you can’t find pineapple juice.

Brown Sugar Mustard Pineapple Glaze for Ham

The star of this recipe is in the glaze. Once the ham is cooked, remove it to a platter and make a glaze right in the crock of the slow cooker.

Glazed Ham

The glaze is super sweet so don’t just dump it back on the ham. I’d ladle it over a little bit at at a time to each piece as it’s served.  It is so yummy!

Mustard Pineapple Ham

I served the ham with slices of fresh pineapple.  You could also use canned or just skip the pineapple altogether.
