Instant Pot Ham
Super easy No-Fuss method to cook Juicy Tender Instant Pot Ham with delicious Golden Honey Pineapple Ham Glaze. Make this smoky, sweet, tangy, savory pressure cooker ham a favorite family holiday tradition!
Pressure Cook Ham: Add 1 (14oz or 398ml) can of pineapples and 2 tablespoons (30ml) dijon mustard in Instant Pot. Give it a quick mix. Layer a stainless steel trivet and place ham on top. Drizzle ¼ cup (63g) honey all over the top of the ham.
Pressure Cook at High Pressure:
-8-9 lbs Bone-in Uncut Ham: 20 minutes + 30 minutes Natural Release -6-7 lbs Bone-in Uncut Ham: 15 minutes + 30 minutes Natural Release -Spiral Ham (Cut Ham): 3 minutes + 20 minutes Natural Release will be warm enough Check internal temperature at its’ thickest part with an accurate food thermometer. *Pro Tip: 95°F (35°C) - 110°F (43°C) is plenty hot enough to serve a piece of ham. Especially with some hot pineapple sauce! If for some reason, the ham is at 80°F (27°C), place the lid back on and pressure cook the ham at High Pressure for another 5 minutes and 10 minutes Natural Release.
Make Honey Pineapple Sauce: Rest ham on a large chopping board or serving bowl (the internal temperature will continue to rise).
Bring the sauce back to a simmer by pressing the "Cancel" button, then "Saute" button. Taste and gradually add in brown sugar to desired sweetness.
*Pro Tip: You will want it to be quite sweet to balance the salty smoky ham flavor (for reference, we added roughly ¼ cup (50g) brown sugar). Mix 2.5 tbsp (22.5g) cornstarch with 3 tbsp (45ml) cold water in a small mixing bowl. Add the cornstarch mixture one third at a time to thicken the yummy honey pineapple sauce until desired thickness.
Serve Ham with Honey Pineapple Sauce: Cut the juicy and warmed Instant Pot Ham with a sharp knife and a fork. Serve it with the yummy Honey Pineapple Ham Sauce. Enjoy & happy holidays!~ 🙂
