Liquid Is The Key To Properly Reheating Ham
By Angel Albring
Meat loses moisture in the cooking process, so leftover ham that has already been cooked has even less natural moisture and is prone to drying out when heating it up. Adding a liquid when reheating leftover ham can not only keep it from drying out but also brings out a few different flavors from the meat with the help of seasonings.
To reheat ham, add a liquid such as broth, BBQ sauce, apple cider, or root beer to the meat, and cook it in a slow cooker on low heat until it’s heated all the way through. You can also add a cup of water or broth to your ham and simmer it on a pan for a few minutes or put it in the microwave for two to three minutes in a covered, microwave-safe container with a liquid.
Per Healthline, meat tastes better if it’s been reheated at room temperature to let the juices resettle throughout the meat after being cold in the fridge. So, if you plan to reheat your ham, let it sit out for around 10 minutes, and then reheat it until it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure it is safe to eat.
