This is one reason I love my Instant Pot®. I can pull a frozen ham from the freezer, put it in the Instant Pot® with just 3 ingredients and, with almost no effort, have dinner on the table.

  • Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 35 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 to 40 minutes. Remove ham and trivet. Cut ham into slices and place on a plate.

  • Select Saute setting on the pressure cooker. Mix cornstarch with water until smooth. Stir mixture into the pot, bring to a boil, and stir until thickened. Pour sauce over the ham.

Cook's Note:

Weight of the ham may vary; use any size you can fit on the trivet in the pot.

I'm rather impressed with having a frozen ham into a cooked ham in a short amount of time. I had pineapple rings on hand which worked just perfect. I would recommend more cornstarch for a thicker sauce but that's a preference thing. Would make again and could fit an even bigger ham if needed. Read More

So thankful to find this excellent recipe for a frozen ham. I didn t have pineapple so I added 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar and 1/2 cup water. I also used honey instead of maple syrup. The ham was very tender and delicious. It took about 30 minutes for a natural release but I m sure this time varies according to the ingredients used. Read More
