  • Prep Time: 13 minutes
  • Cook Time: 9 minutes
  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 1/2 lb precooked carving ham with brown sugar glaze
  • 1 cup water


  1. Open the ham package and place the ham on a large sheet of heavy duty foil. Baste the ham with the brown sugar glaze that comes with the ham. Wrap the ham tightly in the foil.
  2. Place the trivet in the bottom of the Instant Pot. Add in the water. Place the have (fat side up) on the trivet.
  3. Cover the Instant Pot and press the manual button. Set the timer for 9 minutes (you’ll need about 2-3 minutes per pound of ham). Make sure the valve is on “sealing.” When the timer beeps let the pot sit on warm until all the pressure is released and you can open up the pot (mine took 8 minutes to release all the pressure).
  4. Using oven mitts, remove the foil packet and place on a cutting board. Carefully open the foil and make sure the ham is heated to your liking. Carve the ham and serve.


I used my 6 quart Instant Pot for this recipe.
