Harvey Ham Sandwiches

Harvey Ham Sandwiches


"Slow cooked shredded ham in a brown sugar and mustard sauce. This is the sort of thing you prepare a day or so in advance so that when you serve it you don't really have to do much of anything at all. Great for times when people will be in and out, eating irregularly all day."

  1. Place the ham in a large pot or slow cooker, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 8 to 10 hours. Remove the meat from the water, and allow to cool. If it has cooked long enough, it will fall into pieces as you pick it up.
  2. Pull the ham apart into shreds once it is cool enough to handle. It doesn't have to be tiny shreds. Place the shredded ham into a slow cooker. Stir in the mustard and brown sugar, cover, and set to Low. Cook just until heated. Serve on dinner rolls. We don't use any other sandwich toppings with it, but that is a personal choice.

This recipe is fantastic! It goes great with baked beans on the side. And my husband who almost never has a comment about what he's eating said, "This is really good!", and had a second helpin...

Pretty good the first time around. A bit too sweet though. Had to add some toppings -- pickles and/or cole slaw -- to round out the sweetness. I froze the leftovers for another day.

Very, very good. I made it just the way it says and loved it. I will definately make this again, it would be perfect for family gatherings. The only people who didn't like it were those that ...

This is such an awesome recipe! It takes awhile to cook but of course that is why it is a slow cooker recipe:) Once it is done it is very simple to make and fast once the ham is cooked. It ta...
