❤️ Crockpot Ham with Coke
Easy Crockpot Ham!
I love that this recipe is so simple and easy. To actually cook your ham in the crockpot it requires only 3 ingredients. The glaze is an additional step (using stovetop) you can take care of right before the ham is done, or while it is resting. It has only 4 ingredients. Perfectly easy!
Only a few ingredients and you have the best ham!
Make With Coke and Brown Sugar
For those of you not following a sugar free or ketogenic diet simply replace Zevia cola with Coke or Pepsi, and the Swerve brown sugar with real brown sugar!
Fully Cooked Ham in Slow Cooker
Making a fully cooked ham in crockpot is a breeze! It's a fix and forget until it is done so you can go about your business making other yummy recipes!
Keto and Low Carb Ham
This low carb ham is keto-friendly, sugar-free, and gluten-free. Make sure to buy a sugar-free ham and use Zevia soda in place of regular soda. Use Swerve brown sugar replacement for the regular brown sugar.
If your ham comes with a glaze packet, just toss it. This recipe makes its own health glaze (that is MUCH) better.

- 2 tablespoons bourbon
- 1/2 cup brown sugar or sugar free brown sugar substitute

🍲 How To Cook Ham in Crockpot
Here are the steps for making ham in your slow cooker - it's super easy!
Spray slow cooker with nonstick spray or rub with butter. Remove ham from packaging and place sliced side down in the pot.
If your ham comes with a glaze packet, you can toss it. Pour cola and 1 tablespoon bourbon over the top of the ham. Cover and turn crockpot to low.
Cook until the ham's temperature reaches 140 degrees. Test the temperature after 1-1/2 hours. It took approximately 20 to 25 minutes in my slow cooker, but each slow cooker may be different.
Remove ham from slow cooker, tent with foil and let rest. Reserve 1 cup of juices from the crockpot for the glaze.
How To Make Brown Sugar Glaze
In a saucepan or skillet, melt butter. Add 1 cup the juices from the slow cooker, 1 (or 2) 🙂 tablespoon bourbon, and brown sugar.
Heat to a gentle rolling boil and stir continuously with a whisk until liquid is reduced by half and is slightly thickened.
Tip: be careful not to burn the glaze, or boil at too high a temperature. It can easily burn with butter and brown sugar.
Let the thickened and reduced glaze cool.
Brush or spoon the glaze evenly all over the ham. Pull apart the slices to help make sure the glaze works its way down into all its nook and crannies. So good!
Serve and Enjoy
Many ham companies recommend serving ham at room temperature. This is my preferred way to serve and eat ham, but many people love it warm and it tastes just as good! Enjoy!
❓ Common Questions
Can I use a different soda in this crockpot ham?
Yes! Root beer, cream soda, or a lemon-lime soda are all great options.
How long can I keep ham?
Ham can be kept for up to 4 days
How do you know if a ham is done?
Check the temperature. It should be 145 degrees F at its thickest part without touching the bone. Remove the ham when it reaches 140 degrees F then tent with foil and let rest until ready to serve.
