5-7 lbs ham (to fit into your slow cooker)
1/2 cup of your favorite mustard
1 cup brown sugar
salt & pepper to taste
1 onion, quartered


  1. Cover ham in mustard and then rub with brown sugar, salt and pepper. Put inside your slow cooker. Add onions around the edges.
  2. Cook on low for 6 hours.


  • Instead of brown sugar, try some molasses or honey.
  • Want a little kick? Toss in a few whole cloves.
  • Add a few whole garlic cloves, in addition to the onion.
