Ham With Honey Mustard Glaze Pressure Cooker Recipe


SERVES 4 to 10, depending on size of ham and side dishes – Cooker: 6- to 8-quart – Time: Depending on size, 11 or 15 minutes at HIGH pressure

  • 1 to 1½ cups ginger ale, beer, or sparkling apple cider, as needed
  • 1/3 cup sweet-hot honey mustard or honey Dijon mustard (we like the Pommery brand)
  • ¼ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • pinch ground cloves.
  • 1 (2½- to 4-pound) boneless fully cooked ham


  1. In a 6- to 8-quart pressure cooker, place a trivet and steamer rack
  2. Pour in the ginger ale
  3. The liquid should just come up to the bottom of the rack
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the mustard, brown sugar, and cloves together and spoon or spread with a pastry brush over the surface of the ham
  5. Place the ham in a steamer basket, fat side up, and set the basket in the pot, making sure it does not exceed the two thirds full level
  6. Close and lock the lid
  7. Set the burner heat to high
  8. When the cooker reaches HIGH pressure, reduce the burner heat as low as you can and still maintain HIGH pressure
  9. Set a timer to cook for 11 minutes for a small ham (2½ to 3 pounds) and 15 minutes for a larger ham
  10. Remove the pot from the heat
  11. Open the cooker with the Natural Release method; let stand for 15 minutes
  12. Be careful of the steam as you remove the lid
  13. Transfer the ham to a platter
  14. Do not use sharp utensils, like a meat fork, to pierce the ham when trying to turn or lift it because the juices will escape
  15. You can finish the ham off under the broiler for a minute or two to brown the top if you like
  16. Cover with aluminum foil until ready to serve, at least 15 minutes
  17. Slice the ham with a long, thin knife, and serve hot
  18. Let the leftovers come to room temperature, then wrap tightly and refrigerate; it will keep up to 5 days
  19. You can also freeze any leftovers up to 2 months
