Fill it with coke until the gammon is fully, but barely submerged. Optionally, you can add a sauce or glaze on top of the finished roast, and bake it in the oven for about 20 minutes.

This roast is really easy to make, and because of the nature of the slow cooker, it’s basically failed proof. As long as the slow cooker is left with the lid on, it should be ready to eat after about 7 hours.

I usually leave it for 9-10 hours, however, which means I put it on in the morning, go to work, and come home to roasted gammon. Boiling gammon in coke might seem a bit strange, but it honestly tastes lovely.

If you like the idea of a sweet tasting gammon, you can always boil the coke down to a glaze when the roast has finished cooking. Then you can spread the glaze on the roast, and bake in the oven for a few minutes to give the gammon a proper coke flavor.

You can also simply discard the liquid, and serve the gammon with traditional gravy instead. For the purpose of this recipe, feel free to use diet coke in place of sugary coke.

I prefer to use a gammon cut that doesn’t have any pork rind for this recipe. Some supermarkets sell round chunks of meat marked gammon joints, which are pieces of gammon meat pressed together rather than an actual joint.

As a bonus, gammon is a lot healthier and lower in calories without all that fat! As the coke is only there to enhance the gammon flavor, use whichever brand you have at hand.

This delicious recipe is incredibly easy to make, tastes amazing, and provides a tender roast dinner with hardly any work involved. Fill the slow cooker with coke until the entire joint is fully, but barely, submerged.

Leftover gammon can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. Use your leftovers in a pasta bake, a salad, stir-fry, soup, or simply eat it as is. The calories account for using a fat free gammon joint, with a serving size of 170 g per person.

I have heard using orange soda is a great option! Keyword coke, gammon, slowcooker. I'll also show you an Instant pot version and it's 2 sons for the lot, no matter how big or small your joint it and super easy.

So for yesterday's dinner, I decided to create this low syn gammon in coke recipe in the slow cooker and oh my, it tastes so good! With every gammon join, I leave it to simmer away in fresh water to remove the excess.

You can scroll down for the full list of ingredients and recipe on how to cook a gammon joint in coke. And whether you want to cook slow cooker or quick instant pot gammon with diet coke, which I'll show you shortly.

It can be a bit tricky cutting off every scrap, but the more you take time, the more you can ensure you're protecting your weight loss. To infuse my slow cooked gammon in coke, I add a bay leaf, peppercorns, onion, spice, followed by carrots for sweetness.

This takes me back to cooking Gordon Ramsey's honey glazed gammon where he mentioned he reuses the stock. Apart from peeling the carrot for the flavor to run quickly, try not to be too perfect when chopping these as you won't use them again.

However, I have used the stock from gammon joint in cola in a soup before and it gives a really delicious teriyaki taste. I've recently found out that after reserving the cola from my coke gammon recipe, it makes a great stir-fry sauce.

I leave to cool completely and add 1 tsp of cornflour per 150ml of the post- gammon recipe coke. Then add some ground ginger and a tbsp of tomato purée and stir into your vegetables before whacking up the heat.

It's not only cheap and convenient for instant flavor in a bottle, but how many children don't like fizzy drinks? It's so magical that it makes it special enough for the perfect Christmas roast joint and can in fact be cooked with any size, providing you can fit it in your slow cooker.

You could make gammon boiled in coke by simmering in a large lidded pan on the hob until tender and cook it much quicker. And to finish it off cooking a gammon joint in coke, you will need to drain it, give it a coating of honey for the glaze.

Then place your gammon in coke in the oven as usual with a good rub of honey to caramelize, or created pulled pork. So, you could make ham cooked in coke alongside a gammon cola recipe and bacon joint in the same slow cooker.

When you remove all the fat (and the extra plastic wrapping) of common 500-700g joints, I find the gammon tends to break up. This is opposed to slicing your gammon joint coke meat ahead and risk it drying out.

If you want your gammon and coke in slow cooker leftovers to last longer in the fridge, then try not to cut it up into slices before storing. Cutting it up in slices gives it more surface area to breath and grow bacteria quicker.

Other ways my gammon joint in Coca-Cola lasts longer is to cook another meal out of it. If you want gammon slow cooked in coke for a Slimming World Christmas dinner, then I would wrap it well in clingfilm and foil.

Not only do we enjoy cola gammon on our Sunday roast and Christmas dinner laden with all the gravy, it's also great as an easy casual weekday meal. My fiancé often requests that our coke cooked gammon leftovers be served with eggs, chips, beans and onion rings.

It is recommended that when you eat any kind of slow cooked ham in coke, you ensure at least a third of your plate is vegetables. It's 2 sons for the lot, no matter how big or small your joint it and SUPER EASY.

1 kg gammon joint, all fat removed (Bigger or smaller if you wish) 1.25 LTR diet coke *INSTANT POT USERS: Only use 250ml diet coke 1 onion chopped 1 medium carrot peeled & chopped ½ tsp ground cinnamon 1 bay leaf 12 peppercorns 2 tsp runny honey 2 sons (1 level tsp of runny honey = 1 syn) Discard the water and place the gammon in a slow cooker along with all the herbs, spices and veg.

I adore gammon, and this Slow Cooked DietCokeGammon is a total must make if you’re looking for an easy, delicious way to meal prep a some meat to add to your healthy meals! I was lucky enough to be given an Instant Pot which has made it even easier for me to cook healthy, Slimming World friendly meals.

This sensational Slow Cooked DietCokeGammon came about because I’ve always loved to cook gammon in cola, but that just didn’t seem like a possibility now that I’m avoiding all full fat fizzy drinks. As with all meat on Slimming World, you have to cut off as much of the visible fat from your gammon joint as you can.

It’s packed full of flavor, melt in the mouth, and the meat just pulled apart after 10 hours in the slow cooker. After the program had finished and following the machine instructions to shut down your cooker remove the joint.

And put it in a Tupperware with a few ladles of the cooking juices poured on top to keep it nice and moist! I carefully removed the top layer of fat from the gammon using a sharp knife.
