“These meatballs are great! I came up with them on a whim one night while searching through my pantry trying to answer the age old question, 'What's for dinner?' My family LOVES these! I have also taken them to several BBQ's and they are ALWAYS a big hit! For dinner, I like to serve them with a side of steamed minute rice to go along with the meatballs. I hope you enjoy!”

Directions

  1. Heat a slow cooker to Medium-High; stir the reserved liquid from the pineapple chunks, soy sauce, vinegar, and brown sugar together in the slow cooker. Whisk the cornstarch into the mixture until dissolved.
  2. Mix the ground beef, egg, Worcestershire sauce, milk, bread crumbs, onion, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; form into 1-inch balls.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat; cook the meatballs in the hot skillet until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Place the meatballs into the slow cooker. Add the reserved pineapple chunks and green bell pepper.
  4. Cover and cook until the meatballs are no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour.

Super easy and delicious! I doubled the recipe (except for the pineapples) and replaced the other 1/2 of the called for pieapple juice w/oj. I also used fresh onion in my meatballs and added granulated garlic and a few drops of liquid smoke and 1/4c of bbq sauce to them as well. I did also reduce the milk called for and trust me, they were still PLENTY soft. My husband thought the house smelled great when he walked in the door and was more impressed when they hit his mouth. It was too simple but I still relished in the praise! ;O) Thanks for the recipe!

I made this tonight and it was great! The only thing I would do differently next time is to reduce the amount of milk. I think it was too much liquid in the meat mix... I used ground pork tonight and it worked well, too! I would make this again :)

Very good meatballs but I thought it kind of pointless to put in the slow cooker. I boiled the sauce ingredients in a large frying pan and after rolling the meat balls I browned them in the oven, then added them to the sauce to simmer for 20 minutes. The only thing I would do differently next time is double the sauce ingredients to make sure I have enough to serve over rice. A delicious recipe.
