Slow Cooker Ham - With Root Beer Demi Glace

Slow Cooker Ham With Root Beer Demi Glace

If you are still looking for an easy meal idea for Easter (or any night really!) make sure to check out this easy and delicious Ham recipe.  I like to use the Slow Cooker as much as possible – it’s just too easy to not use!  I put our small ham in the slow cooker and tossed in a can of coke and let it cook all day long.  It adds a great flavor, but my favorite part of this meal is definitely the Root Beer Demi Glace, which is also super easy to make.  Spend some time with your family…don’t spend it all in the kitchen ;)

Ingredients
  • Ham
  • Coca-Cola
  • 12 oz of Root Beer
  • 12 oz of Beef Stock
Instructions
  1. Put the ham in the slow cooker
  2. Add enough Coca-Cola to cover ¼ of the ham - baste the ham through the day to ensure it says juicy and moist
  3. Cook on low for 4-6 hours
  4. Put the beef stock and root beer in a pan on the stove approx 45 minutes before you want to serve your meal
  5. Let the root beer mixture simmer for 30 minutes, slowly bring to a boil the last few minutes
  6. The liquid will reduce QUICKLY so when it starts to boil, do NOT leave the stove - you don't want to lose it all
  7. The liquid will become syrup like when it is ready
  8. Spoon the demi glace over the ham right before serving

What is your favorite Easter recipe?  Feel free to share it in the comments!  If you are looking for a dessert recipe, I posted a Strawberry Chocolate Truffle and a Peaches & Cream Pie recipe yesterday :)

Peaches and Cream Pie Recipe

Peaches and Cream Pie Recipe

Can you believe that Easter is just a few days away?  My kids had a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny while we were in St. Augustine last weekend, then the Easter Bunny hopped in for a Glow in the Dark Easter Egg hunt Monday night (my parents were in town and my mom wanted to see it!), and of course they are saying that the Easter Bunny will be here on Sunday too!  Now, I have to run to the store for more candy :)

If you get together with family, or maybe you just have a special say at home on Easter my buddy Christie at Saving Said Simply has a delicious pie recipe that you may want to try.

Check out the Peaches & Cream Pie Recipe

I love peaches, and I can honestly say that I have never made a Peach Pie, but that sure looks good!  Maybe I will have to give it a try :)

The other night I decided to make a Mexiacn version of my chili and I have to say that it turned out really well. I am a fan of anything Mexican AND I can put in the crockpot :)  And, this one has little to no prep time – even better!  When I posted my Chili with Noodles recipe awhile back some folks commented that they make their chili with rice…so I thought Mexican Chili deserved rice!

  • ½ lb of ground turkey
  • 1 cup of cooked rice (I used white)
  • Tomatoes, sour creams, shredded cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips and cilantro for toppings
Instructions
  1. Put everything in the crockpot expect the rice and let it cook for 4-6 hours
  2. Cook the rice according to package instructions
  3. Add the cooked rice to the crockpot for an additional 1 hour
  4. Serve with your favorite toppings
  5. Enjoy

I will admit, it doesn’t come out of the crockpot all that pretty, but it is delicious – and low-cal!  Make sure to let me know if you try it!
