Today I’ll make all of your busy moms life easier: here is a slow cooker ham recipe that can feed your family for 3 days in 3 different ways! I think you must be applauding me now in front of your screens, aren’t you? 😉 And don’t get scared by the beer being in one of the ingredients: after slowly cooking for 6 hours there will be no alcohol left! Just a delicious melt-in-your-mouth slow cooked ham.
On the first day serve it in a old school comforting way: baby potatoes (or mashed) and a green salad or green beans. On a second day serve it with my super easy ratatouille. And on a third make a simplified butternut squash curry with the slow cooked ham cubes.
What you’ll need for the slow cooked ham :
1/4 cup Maple syrup
2 table spoons Dijon mustard
Water ( as much as you’ll need to fill the slow cooker up to the top so it covers the ham)
Ham( big piece- around 5 pounds)
Mix all of the liquids with mustard directly insight of the slow cooker, add ham, cower and cook on high for 6 hours. (Easy breezy, I loved this part!) Serve with baby potatoes and green salad.
The easy Ratatouille :
1 medium eggplant
2 bell peppers
1 medium tomato ( without skin).
One teaspoon herbs of Provence
+ leftover meet
Cut your veggies in cubes. Cook them on medium heat with one table spoon of olive oil,herbs, pressed garlic and meat. Enjoy your easy dinner :).
The Butternut squash curry
1 1/2 cup butternut squash cubes
3 medium potatoes
1/2 cup celery
1 big onion
1 teaspoon grounded good quality allspice
1/2 teaspoon grounded Cumin
+ leftover meet
Cut the veggies and cook until soft with olive oil, spices and leftover slow cooked ham cut in cubes. I hope you’ll find it as delicious as we did!
And now, I need to make another batch of this ham :).
