Combine sauce ingredients in slow cooker; cover and cook on high while preparing meatballs.
Combine meatball ingredients and mix until well blended. Shape into 1 to 1 1/2-inch meatballs. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add meatballs; brown on all sides. You might have to do this in batches. Place browned meatballs in a 325° oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until cooked through (if the skillet isn't ovenproof, transfer to a baking dish). Ground beef should be cooked to at least 160°.
Transfer meatballs to slow cooker with a slotted spoon. Cover and reduce to LOW for 2 to 4 hours. Serve hot as an appetizer or over rice for a main dish.
Makes 24 to 48 meatballs, depending on size.
