How to Make This Quick and Easy One-Pot Meal

Prepare the ingredients: First, gather all the ingredients you’ll need for the recipe. You’ll need ham, brown sugar, canned pineapple slices, and pineapple juice. Make sure you have all the ingredients on hand, so you can quickly assemble your Instant Pot ham.

Add the brown sugar: At the bottom of the Instant Pot, add half of the brown sugar. This will help create a sweet glaze for the ham and keep it moist throughout the cooking process.

Place the ham and pineapple: Place the ham on top of the brown sugar. Next, add the pineapple slices between the ham slices. This will infuse the ham with a sweet and tangy flavor that your taste buds will love.

Pour the pineapple juice and add the remaining brown sugar: Pour the pineapple juice over the ham, making sure to cover every inch. This will ensure that the ham stays juicy and flavorful. Next, top the ham with the remaining brown sugar. This will help to create a delicious crust on top of the ham.

Cook in Instant Pot: Turn on the Instant Pot with the vent sealed, on high for 15 minutes. (It takes about 20 minutes to decompress.) This will allow the ham to become tender and juicy as it absorbs all the flavors from the sauce.
