The best ham ever. Crock pot too!

  • Harvey Ham Sandwiches
  • (from

  • 1 (6 pound) bone-in ham
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar yellow mustard
  • 1 pound brown sugar (I probably used about half of this- just add to taste!)
  • 24 dinner rolls, split


  1. Place the ham in a large pot or slow cooker, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 8 to 10 hours. Remove the meat from the water, and allow to cool. If it has cooked long enough, it will fall into pieces as you pick it up.
  2. Pull the ham apart into shreds once it is cool enough to handle. It doesn't have to be tiny shreds. Place the shredded ham into a slow cooker. Stir in the mustard and brown sugar, cover, and set to Low. Cook just until heated. Serve on dinner rolls. We don't use any other sandwich toppings with it, but that is a personal choice.
Yum.  This was awesome ham, I promise.  Eat it plain is divine, in rolls is a snack can't go wrong.  The mustard is muted, even though that sounds like a lot of mustard.  If you're scared, just add half of the mustard called for and taste as you go.  Try this ham, you will not be disappointed!

Good crowd pleaser! Tried this for Easter Dinner. Turned out great.Everyone liked it. Flavor was a nice change from regular honey ham.

I cooked a 7 lb spiral cut ham on high for about 3 hours and turned to low for 5 hours. Was moist and fell apart nicely. I used about 1 cup brown sugar and about 1/2 to 3/4 cup mustard--(all I had.) I'd add more of each next time just for some extra wetness but the flavor was good.
