Hello – once again I am bringing you a recipe from Chicken Soup for the Soul – Recipes for Busy Moms. This book is full of wonderful kid friendly – Mom approved recipes and I am so glad I stumbled upon it.
1 Jar (9 to 10 Ounces) sweet and sour sauce
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 1/2 pounds frozen meatballs
2 bell peppers (1 red and 1 green), chopped
1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks, drained
The meatballs are in the dish in the left of the photo. I buy them in bulk at Costco so I measured out two pounds. I was not home for dinner last night (had a work meeting) hence, the crockpot meal so that the boys would have a warm meal to eat with minimal fuss. What I did not pay attention to was the fact that the meatballs were Italian style. They ate it and my husband took leftovers to work for lunch – but the consensus was that Italian style meatballs with sweet and sour sauce was a bit weird. Advice – buy plain meatballs for this recipe.
Place all ingredients into a four quart or larger crockpot/slow cooker; stir gently then cover with the lid. Cook on low setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high setting for 4 to 5 hours, until done. (I did the low for 8 hours)
