Recipe: Easy Crock-Pot Sweet and Sour Meatballs


 This is a very quick and easy recipe to throw in the crockpot. The end result is a sweet and slightly tangy flavored meatball that you can eat alone as an appetizer or as a meal.


Easy Crock-Pot Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Ingredients:
1 package (38 oz) prepared frozen meatballs - or go ahead and be ambitious and make your own!
16 oz jar of chili sauce
1 jar (2 lbs) grape jelly

Put all ingredients together in a crock-pot and cook on low for about 6 hours.

I told you it was easy! I did stir the pot a few times since I wasn't in a hurry for them to cook. I found it helped keep the meatballs soaked in the sauce and blend the chunky jelly with the chili sauce for a smooth nicely mixed sauce.

This made a nice big batch of meatballs. We had them during football Sunday as an appetizer and then used the leftovers on Monday as a meal.


I simply chopped green peppers, onions and pineapple and sauteed them together in a pan. Then I added in the meatballs and sauce and served over rice.


Enjoy!

  1. You should try this with a can of cranberry sauce instead of the grape jelly. It's delicious!

  3. What a great idea! We've had the meatball+chili sauce+grape jelly recipe, and my whole family loves that for party food.  But I never thought to add vegetables and serve over rice to make it a meal!  Thanks!
