Ingredients
 

  • 1 kg frozen pre- cooked beef meatballs ( I got mine from Coles)
  • 1 500g jar sweet and sour cooking/simmer sauce
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium red capsicum, cubed
  • 1 can pineapple chunks, drained

Instructions
 

  • Spray or line the slow cooker.
  • Add the frozen meatballs to the slow cooker.
  • Mix all the other ingredients in a pouring jug and pour over meatballs, stir gently to coat.
  • Place lid on slow cooker.
  • COOK on LOW for 3 to 6 hours OR on HIGH for 2 to 4 hours

Notes

  • Substitute chicken or pork meatballs for beef if desired
  • Double the recipe for a crowd by using 2kg of meatballs and adding another jar of sweet and sour sauce
  • Serve with rice or Asian noodles
  • Suitable for 3-5 l slow cooker (double recipe for 7l cooker)
  • *NB* - while slow cooking frozen raw meat is never advised, small partially cooked meatballs such as these pre purchased ones will defrost quickly and safely during cooking

  1. Sounds delicious – could you make your own meatballs and put them in raw (not frozen)? I wonder if they would just fall apart if they weren’t browned first?

  2. Absolutely brilliant. I made two lots of nibble sized sweet chilli meatballs. I was trying out easy finger food recipes for a future wedding and they were gone almost before I walked back to the kitchen. A big hit and very easy to make and they freeze very well. Will definitely be making again.

  3. Absolutely brilliant. I made two lots of nibble sized sweet chilli meatballs. I did make my own plain mince meatballs with just a bit of garlic, salt and pepper as I was trying out easy finger food recipes for a future wedding and they were gone almost before I walked back to the kitchen. A big hit and very easy to make and they freeze very well. Will definitely be making again.

  4. Absolutely delicious!! Made my own meatballs pork and beef mince and doubled all sauce ingredients except for jar (only had 1) added 2 TBS white vinegar, pepper, added juice with pineapple and 2 cups of water.Thickened with 3Tbs cornflour and 3 TBS water added to sauce 1/2 an hour before serving Will definitely make again 🙂
