Ham Potato Bake

2 1/2 lbs. small sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into bite-size pieces
1 1/2 lbs. boneless ham steak

2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp. prepared mustard
2/3 cup and 1 cup apple juice

Put sweet potato into 3.5L slow cooker. Place ham steak over top.

Mix brown sugar, mustard and apple juice in small cup. Sprinkle over ham. Cover. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 3 1/2 - 4 hours. Add cornstarch to thicken about ½ hour before it is finished cooking. Cut ham into serving-size pieces. Serves 4.

The only thing I would do differently is to cut the ham into bite-size pieces and mix it in with the sweet potato so it has a nice ham flavor to it.
