Easter Ham (Pressure Cooker Ham)

Before all is said and done, you just might get tired of hearing me tell you how great the Instant Pot is. But trust me, it’s amazing. And using it to cook your Easter ham is no exception! I mean, if pressure cooker ham tastes just as good and takes 1/3 the time, it seems like a no-brainer to me.

Less Time, Same Great Quality

When it comes to cooking for holidays, there is an all-out production at my house. Now that we are hosting the entire family at our home, I am actively seeking out ways to save time and effort – but without sacrificing quality. My family would never stand for that!

So you have my word. I will never share a recipe with you that is not tested and approved. This recipe saves time, but maintains all the quality of a traditional ham. It’s gotten my family’s stamp of approval every time I’ve made it. And trust me – my family is pickier than yours. Lol.

The Secret to This Recipe is…

It’s sweet and succulent – and the flavor that would normally be on the outside glaze goes throughout the meat!This recipe is a variation of a turkey brine that I’ve been using for a while now. The turkey is always perfect, so I figured let’s try it with a ham. And I’m so glad I did – you will be too.

The Process

If ham is too large, cut ham meat off bone into large chunks and place in Instant Pot.

      10 minutes at high pressure. The cook time takes into account coming up to pressure and natural pressure release.
