Crockpot Hawaiian Meatballs
I’m all about the easy dinner ideas. Anything from the crockpot is awesome! I just come at lunch from school and throw the food in the crockpot and turn it on low. It’s so nice and easy I can’t even tell you how much I loved this meal. We have leftovers but it was so good I want it tomorrow for lunch if Matt doesn’t beat me to it!
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
3/4 cup crushed saltine cracker crumbs
1/3 cup minced onion
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon Sea salt
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 packed brown sugar
1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks juice
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Veggies to put in the crockpot
1 green pepper sliced
1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl mix together all of the ingredients for the meatballs. You will want to use your hands to mix them together well. Separate into golf ball-sized meatballs. Place on a cookie sheet, then bakes for 20 minutes.
2. When the meatballs are done baking allow to cool completely and place in a gallon-sized freezer bag. Place in the fridge or freezer depending on when you would like to make it.
3. In a medium saucepan whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce. Bring to a boil on medium heat, continue to stir until the sauce thickens. Set aside to cool. Place in a bowl or bag and in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
4. Cut off the green peppers. Place frozen meatballs into the bottom of the crockpot and dump the sauce on top. Then put cut peppers on top. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until meatballs are heated through and the peppers are tender.
5. The last 30 minutes add your pineapple. Serve with rice! Enjoy!!
