Can I say I am addicted to my Instant Pot? I understand why so many love this appliance. I have been so busy lately that cooking and baking in it has saved me a ton of time in my kitchen.

Tropical Mango Glazed Ham

When my ex-husband told me to get out years ago, he did this right at Christmas time. My friends helped get my stuff out and got me through that time. To thank them, I made a tropical mango glazed ham.

Cooking Tip:

[dropcap custom_class=”normal”] I [/dropcap]nstead of placing a chicken on a roasting rack, cut thick slices of onion, put them in an oiled pan, then place the chicken on top. The onion will absorb the chicken juices. After roasting, let the chicken rest while you make a sauce with the onions by adding a little stock or water to the pan and cooking it for about 3 minutes on high heat. – Source: FoodNetwork

I found the original recipe for the mango ham glaze on Food Network. It was fabulous. Everyone enjoyed the ham dinner I made.

Cooking A Ham In The Instant Pot

I do have a confession, this is my second attempt at cooking a ham in the Instant Pot. The first attempt, I cooked it way too long . I ended up with a well done candied ham.

 

It was a cooking lesson on cooking ham in an instant pot. The time you need to cook anything in an Instant pot is much less than what cook in the oven. So this time I tried again, and cut the time way down and got a perfect ham dinner.

Adding Ginger Ale For Ham Glaze

Another lesson I learned from the first attempt at cooking a ham in the Instant Pot was I need more liquid. My answer to that was ginger ale. My mom actually makes her Easter ham with a ginger ale based ham glaze.

 

Her recipe is simple:

  • Ginger ale
  • mustard
  • brown sugar

Knowing I needed more liquid to cook this ham in the instant pot. Plus less time to develop this Instant Pot Pineapple Mango Ham. I combined that mango ham glaze I made years earlier with my mother’s ham glaze.

 

The combination of those ingredients gave this pineapple mango ham that wow factor. The taste of the ham was perfect. Best of all, it made for an easy ham recipe.

 

It was an easy ham recipe for the Instant pot after I figured out what I did wrong the first time that is. The key to making a ham in the instant pot is watching the time. Remember it is less than the oven to cook the ham.
