Monday meals: sweet and sour meatballs

I’m an unashamed fan of any dinner than I can throw in the slow cooker sometime in the morning and then throw onto plates whenever my kids are hungry in the evening. This is one of those meals. And an even bigger plus – it makes a great freezer meal. Just put all of the ingredients in a ziplock bag and whip out whenever you need a quick, easy, no-prep option to feed your brood.

I actually kind of like making my own meatballs, but you could just as easily use a bag of frozen for this recipes. Whatever works for you, momma!

What you’ll need:

  • a 10-ounce jar of your favorite sweet and sour sauce. Or whip up your own, if you’re a pro like that
  • 1/4 brown sugar
  • 1/4 soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • two peppers – whatever colors you want – chopped
  • one onion, chopped
  • a can of pineapple chunks, drained
  • two pounds of meatballs

Stir all of the ingredients except meatballs together in the crockpot. Then add the meatballs and stir until they’re well coated. Throw that thing on low for about five or six hours. It’s best served over rice.

The original recipe is from here.
