“Meatballs are roasted, then simmered in a rich barbeque sauce made with cola. These make a great potluck dish, and they are always gone in minutes! Now they have become a tradition at our house on Super Bowl Sunday, and I learned the hard way to always make sure I have plenty of copies of the recipe handy for giving!”

Original recipe yields 36 appetizer meatballs

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, grated onion and Ranch dressing mix until well blended. Shape into 1 inch meatballs, and place on a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan, or any baking sheet with sides to catch the grease.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, turning them over half way through. While the meatballs are roasting, mix together the ketchup, cider vinegar, cola, chopped onion and green pepper in a slow cooker. Season with seasoning salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. Remove meatballs from the baking sheet, and place into the sauce in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low for 3 hours, then remove the lid and cook for an additional 15 minutes before serving.

My family loves this recipe. I made it twice now for dinner and served it over rice. I will admit to cheating and using prepared frozen meatballs. I make the sauce and then throw the meatballs in frozen and cook 3+ hours.

I have made this recipe 4 times now and have learn a few things. Only let it cook 4 hours or less because the meatballs will become greasy after that. I use red onion for a milder flavor. I also use store bought frozen meatballs in the bag and double the sauce and that works well. This is truely a great recipe to have. Enjoy!
