4 hrs 10 mins
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
1Spray or line the slow cooker.
2Add the frozen meatballs to the slow cooker.
3Mix all the other ingredients in a pouring jug and pour over meatballs, stir gently to coat.
4Place lid on slow cooker.
5COOK on LOW for 3 to 6 hours OR on HIGH for 2 to 4 hours
1Substitute chicken or pork meatballs for beef if desired
2Double the recipe for a crowd by using 2kg of meatballs and adding another jar of sweet and sour sauce
3Serve with rice or Asian noodles
4Suitable for 3-5 l slow cooker (double recipe for 7l cooker)
5*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

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.

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?
