Last week I cooked a ham roast for the first time, and was pleased with the result. Using a slow cooker, the meat becomes fall-off-the-bone tender – and it’s easy to make because it cooks while I work on the farm. Here’s my recipe – how would you fix a ham roast?
4 LBS. ham roast (“pork fresh ham”)
1/3 c. honey
1/4 tsp. salt
2 pinches nutmeg
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 c. water
1 medium onion, sliced
Place ham roast in an air-tight plastic bag. Mix together honey, herbs, and spices and rub into the roast. Let marinate in the fridge overnight. In the morning, place roast in slow cooker, cover in sliced onion, and pour 1/2 c. water on top. Cook on low for about 6 hours. Enjoy!
I served this meal with mashed potatoes, biscuits, roasted sweet potatoes & carrots, and oatmeal raisin cookies. 🙂
