Slow Cooker Sweet N Sour Meatballs
Meatballs in the crock-pot are the one of the easiest recipes to make. Most of the time the recipe is just frozen meatballs dumped in a crock-pot with some sort of sauce and heated until the meatballs are infused with flavor. Simple enough.
This is one of those recipes. Cut up some bell peppers and some carrots. You could also add in some pineapple chunks if you choose or even some sugar snap pea pods. In a separate bowl, mix the soy sauce and the sweet n sour sauce and then pour over the meatballs and the veggies in the crock-pot.
If you are not a big fan of using the pre-made store bought sweet n sour sauce. You can make your own with this easy recipe…
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon water
- 2/3 cup pineapple juice
- 1/3 cup rice vinegar
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- In a small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and water. Set aside.
- Mix the remaining ingredients in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
- Stir in the water/corn starch mixture and stir until thickened over. Remove from heat and use immediately.
If you use the homemade recipe for the meatballs double the homemade sweet n sour recipe. The added sauce is great for dipping or to add to the top of your rice.
