How to Cook Ham in the Instant Pot

Here you are looking at the ham you just bought and the Instant Pot sitting on your counter, wondering how to cook a ham in the Instant Pot. What if I told you that this is actually an easy process? It is! I’m going to walk you through how to cook this large delicious piece of meat in the Instant Pot. Before long, you’ll have another delicious meal to feed your large family. Let’s get started!

How to Cook Ham in the Instant Pot

You may be a little intimidated by the fact that your Instant Pot can do it all. Yes, it can even cook this ham that you’ve been scared to make. Ham is actually one of the easiest meals you can make in the Instant Pot. Plus, imagine all the meals you can make with leftover ham from the Instant Pot. 

Choose Your Ham

Of course, one of the most important steps to cooking ham in the Instant Pot is to choose your ham. Hams are very inexpensive post-holidays. You’ll notice that hams get marked down the day after major holidays. You can always buy one then and then freeze it. I’m always watching out for good deals too! 

For this recipe in the Instant Pot, it calls for hams that are 4-5 pounds. It won’t be hard to find a ham that size. You don’t want your ham to be too big because it won’t fit in the Instant Pot. Make sure you keep this in mind as you choose the ham that you want to cook. 

Step by Step Directions

I will go ahead and share the tips here. However, you can also print this recipe off in the recipe box. 

Step 1:Pour water in an electric pressure cooker and top with trivet (if space for the ham allows.) Place the ham on top.

Step 2: Mix together other ingredients and brush over ham.

Step 3: Cover the electric pressure cooker with the lid and set the valve to sealing. Program to cook on “manual” or “pressure cook” for 9 minutes. 

Step 4: Once the cook cycle is complete, allow the electric pressure cooker to naturally release the pressure.

Step 5: Carefully remove the ham. Slice and serve.

Now that you know you can cook a ham in the Instant Pot, you may start making hams more often. I can’t get over the taste of ham and how delicious it can be when cooked right. 

What to Serve with Instant Pot Ham?

The next question you have may be “what do I serve with Instant Pot Ham?” Well, that’s not really an issye because you can literally serve anything with ham. Some of my favorite meals to serve with this ham include Baked Beef Macaroni & Cheese, Mashed Potatoes, and a veggie that you may be craving. 

You don’t have to wait for a holiday to serve ham. Ham is literally good at any time of the week and you won’t be able to get enough of how good it tastes on a Tuesday.
