Today I want to post a recipe I made up on Saturday. Believe me, this is not my own recipe, I got it out of the Six Sisters cookbook that I reviewed a while back. I just wanted you all to see how easy this is to make and how great the cookbook is! I literally make something from this book every week. Whether it is a dessert, meal, side, beverage, etc. These are down to earth, homey recipes that taste good and use products found at your local grocery store. Nothing exotic or out there:) What I like with this recipe is that you throw everything in the slow cooker and it simmers for hours while you are doing your other stuff. Then boom! Your dinner is ready at the end of the day.
1 (10 oz) jar of sweet and sour sauce. I bought a little bit larger jar and used all of it. I like mine saucy:)
1/4 c. light brown sugar
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/2 Tspn garlic powder 2 lbs frozen meatballs
Bell peppers, I used green and red, cubed
1 small onion cubed 1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks, drained
DIRECTIONS-Spray your slow cooker with a nonstick cooking spray. Then throw all the ingredients in the pot and stir gently.Then put the lid on. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high 4-5 hours. This can be served atop rice or with toothpicks as an appetizer.
I love this recipe!! It works great on top of rice and makes a pretty complete meal. Just be forewarned:) The smells will drive you nuts throughout the day. I soo wanted to taste it before dinner time. This says it serves 8 but I am not sure it will do that many. Not everyone in our family eats it so we had 4 plus some leftovers. But I also didn't use a complete 2 lb bag of meatballs. So I would double the recipe if you have people who like big helpings or seconds. You can't go wrong with this one!!
