Crockpot Sweet and Sour Meatballs
These meatballs make a nice appetizer, or serve as a main dish with rice and a salad.


  • 1 pound ground chuck or round
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fine plain breadcrumbs or corn flake crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce, low sodium
  • 2 tablespoons grated or finely minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, low sodium
  • 1 large sweet bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • hot cooked rice
  • 1 can pineapple, chunks (15 ounces)


In a large bowl, combine ground beef, egg, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, salt, pepper, 1 teaspoon soy sauce, bread crumbs, and onion. Shape into 1 1/2 in balls. In a large skillet, lightly brown meatballs in the vegetable oil. Drain well. Transfer meatballs to slow cooker.

In a small bowl, combine vinegar, sugar, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, cornstarch and bell pepper; stir to blend. Pour over meatballs. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 7 hours. In the last 30 minutes of cooking, stir in pineapple with juice. If thicker juices are desired, combine more cornstarch with a little cold water and add, stirring, until thickened. Serve with hot cooked rice.

Great taste!, Member PackOPits

I'm pretty new to cooking and this was my first time using a crock-pot. It was simple to make and tasted great. My 7 year old son helped me with the making of this and it was a blast. I myself cut the pepper into bite sized pieces and wasn't able to get anything but sliced canned pineapple put I cut them to chunks. I was using a 7qrt crock pot so put in a bit of water about halfway. Turning out great, thank you for sharing this!
