Cook your next ham in an Instant Pot to guarantee a juicy, tender, easy meal. This recipe makes family dinner or your next holiday meal a breeze!
I am a meat-loving girl through and through. Steak, chicken, pork of any variety.. YES, please! Ham especially has always had a special place in my heart. I love the saltiness and succulent flavor of a well-cooked ham. It has to be juicy, tender enough to cut with a fork and also needs a bit of extra flavor (not too much). I swoon over holiday meals because HAM. I go crazy over ham leftovers and make the most of every juicy morsel, including that delicious little bone that transforms soup into crazy-good soup (this Ham Bone Soup is to die for!). And my recent discovery of preparing ham in my Instant Pot has transformed my ham-loving life in a new way. I will never bake ham in an oven ever again. Pressure-cooked ham is the way to go!

PREPARING A HAM IN YOUR INSTANT POT
If you are looking for a no-fail dinner to put on the table, this beautifully glazed ham with just a few ingredients will be perfect! It’s not just for Easter dinner!
Start with 1/2 cup honey, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce.
Combine ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
Place the ham inside a piece of heavy-duty foil and fold up around the sides. Pour the sauce over the ham, ensuring it seeps into the slices. Fold foil up over the ham to cover entirely.
Next you’ll pour 1 1/2 cups water into the Instant Pot. Place ham on trivet and lower into Instant Pot.
Place the cover on the pot and set timer to 20 minutes on high pressure (pressure cook setting). It will take the IP around 11 minutes to build up pressure before it begins cooking.
When cooking time is done, do a Quick Release. Let the float valve drop and remove the cover.
Carefully place the ham on a serving platter. Gently pour a little of the juices over the top of the ham and serve with Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes! We also recommend this recipe on How To Make Grits from Mama Gourmand as a good side dish alternative.
