For Christmas I got some Crock Pot Recipe cookbooks. I found this gem in there and tried it tonight. Only 4 ingredients... my kind of cooking!! It was really good and really filling. Watch your portion size if you're watching your waistline. I think this would make a great Christmas dish as well!!!
6 carrots, sliced in half lengthwise
3 sweet potatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
1 1/2 pounds boneless ham steak (watch out for Nitrates, you may need to buy this at your health food store to avoid)
1 Cup maple syrup
:Place carrots and potatoes in bottom of slow cooker to form a rack. Place ham on top of vegetables. Pour syrup over ham and vegetables. Cover; cook on LOW 6 to 8 hours.
Makes 6 servings (or 4 large)
