Slow Cooker Ham and Potatoes

Slow Cooker Ham and Potatoes has so much flavor and is a wholesome meal the whole family will love. Simple ingredients and easy to make.

The slow cooker is the perfect way to cook ham and potatoes! So tender and delicious. I always add baby carrots and fresh green beans. This is a complete meal by itself and you don't need a side dish but we like to serve it with sliced tomatoes and cornbread.

Ingredients

See printable recipe card below for all ingredients, specific measurements, and complete instructions.

  • Ham Steak - You will need a 2 pound fully-cooked ham steak 
  • Potatoes - You can use small red potatoes and cut in half or russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 to 2-inch pieces.
  • Fresh Green Beans - I used fresh green beans but feel free to use frozen if that is all you have on hand.
  • Baby Carrots -
  • Vegetable or Chicken broth - I used low sodium chicken broth. But vegetable broth works well in this recipe also.
  • Onion - One small diced onion.
  • Butter - A little bit of cubed butter adds a lot of flavor to the vegetables.
  • Seasonings - Minced garlic, salt and black pepper.

Recipe Tips

  • I have found that slow cookers may vary in how they heat. Some tend to cook hotter than others. So please note you may need to adjust cooking time based on the brand and model of your slow cooker.
  • If you don't have fresh green beans you can use frozen green beans. I would not use canned beans in this recipe.
  • I recommend using low sodium broth since the ham is salty. You can always add extra salt if you feel it needs it at the end of cooking.
  • If you prefer you can use sweet potatoes in place of baby potatoes.
  • Leftover ham from Christmas or Easter can be used in place of ham steak.
  • Use a 6-quart or larger slow cooker.
