Crockpot Hawaiian Meatballs is the perfect dinner for those who love salty and sweet. I love this combination!
My brothers don’t like sweet meat, but I do. I love these because they are different and they help mix up the routine. I’ve been trying to come with menu’s for this school year and trying do things that mix up my life. I love Hawaiian food always and you really can’t go wrong with crockpot meals.
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- 3/4 cup crushed saltine cracker crumbs
- 1/3 cup minced onion
- 1 egg
- 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
- 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 bake for 20 minutes.
- 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.
- In a medium sauce pan 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.
- Cut of 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.
- The last 30 minutes add your pineapple. Serve with rice! Enjoy!!
