"A never-fail recipe that is a family favorite. Frequent basting during the cooking time is key to a delicious result. We can't help taking several tester bites while waiting for dinner to be ready. Makes great leftovers for sandwiches. A Maritime tradition with home-baked beans and bakery fresh bread. Also fantastic with potato scallop and buttered green beans."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Whisk beer, brown sugar, and Dijon mustard together in a bowl.
  3. Place ham cut side up in a large roasting pan; pour beer mixture over ham.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until ham begins to brown, about 15 minutes, basting 4 to 5 times.
  5. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cover roasting pan with lid or aluminum foil.
  6. Continue to bake until ham is heated through, about 90 minutes more, basting frequently.

Hi there! I am the self professed foodie who submitted this recipe, and there is an error in the brown sugar amount. It should read 2 TBSP, and not 1/2tsp. Not sure why that happened, but happy ...

Loved it! I used a can and a half of beer, almost 1/3 cup dijon and a large handful of brown sugar for an 8.5 pound ham and turned out great! Plenty of juice in the pan to keep it moist. I cooke...

I just made this and it is so good! Even my 6 year old who puts ketchup on everything said it was good and didn't put any on hers!!

this was great!

My wife and I did not like it. We don't like beer. That must have been the reason. It tasted bitter I think. After washing each slice and cutting away the outside from each slice it tasted go...

I used a dark beer - Negro Modelo and it made the best ham ever!

Reduced the amount of sauce to about 1/4 of the total amount and use over a large ham steak. WOW!! what an improvement

Thank you for this recipe, my family loved this! I am making it for the 2nd time today. Makes great sandwiches too.

I will try this again as the results may have been my fault. My ham came out very tasty, but not juicy. It was dry, almost like a country ham. But, I did not read where I was suppose to continue...
