Heating a fully cooked ham in a pressure cooker can be a healthy way to prepare a ham. A good quality ham is naturally a lean piece of pork. When heated in a pressure cooker, you are left with ham that is moist and tender with virtually no fat. Now you can prepare a ham for your family and feel good about feeding it to them.

Things You'll Need

  • Fully cooked ham
  • Pressure cooker
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • Sliced onion
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • Meat thermometer

Video of the Day

Place ham in the pressure cooker with the fat side up.

Pour in 2 cups of pineapple juice.

Add one sliced onion.

Sprinkle in 1/4 cup brown sugar.

Add 1 tsp. dry mustard.

Seal the pressure cooker.

Cook the ham on a low setting for 30 minutes.

Insert meat thermometer into ham. When the temperature reaches 140 degrees Fahrenheit, your ham is ready.

Remove your ham when it's cooled.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do not use a sharp object to remove ham. Piercing through the skin will cause the ham to lose moisture.
  • Be sure that your pressure cooker is large enough for your ham. The meat should not take up more than 3/4 of the pressure cooker.
