A Different Kind of Slow Cooker Sandwiches


These sandwiches aren't shredded. It's a new way to use deli meat and a different way to make sandwiches with your slow cooker.


Slow-Cooker Ham Sandwiches


1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
2 lb. shaved deli ham


8 deli rolls, pretzel rolls, or kaiser rolls, toasted
8 slices pepper Jack cheese
1 cup arugula
1/2 cup honey mustard or mayonnaise


In a 2-quart saucepan, mix all the ham ingredients except the shaved deli ham. Heat to boiling; boil 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Place shaved deli ham in 3 1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker. Pour boiled liquid on top of ham; cover and cook on high heat setting 2 hours.

Use fork or slotted spoon to transfer ham to rolls. Top ham immediately with a slice of cheese and arugula. Spread mayonnaise or honey mustard on tops of rolls and place on top of arugula. Serve immediately.

Notes: These were really tasty. I loved the combination of flavors. Plus, I loved that they were really easy to make. This recipe is a keeper!


  1. This one can be doubled or tripled for a crowd. When cooking for large groups of people, do-ahead is a must!

  2. Mom, have you made this one before?
