My kids have been obsessed with meatballs lately. I guess I should say more obsessed because meatballs have always been a favorite. But lately, they can’t get enough. I made spaghetti the other night and all the meatballs were gone well before the noodles were!
Since a couple of my boys are currently going through weird picky stages, I’ve decided we’re having meatballs for every meal!
No, not really but I figured I could make them more often and switch it up from the usual spaghetti.
My kids ate this entire recipe of Hawaiian Meatballs. In one sitting. And then asked me to make them again when I told them they were all gone.
I thought they were really good too and I was happy that the recipe didn’t call for ketchup because you guys know I hate (and by hate, I mean I secretly love) when recipes call for large amounts of ketchup in the sauce.
But this one is just pineapple juice and brown sugar! Feel free to make your own meatballs if you’re feeling more ambitious but the frozen ones worked just fine!
from My Organized Chaos
- Put meatballs and pineapple chunks in slow cooker.
- In a large bowl, stir together pineapple juice, brown sugar, cornstarch, white vinegar, soy sauce, and cayenne (if using). Pour over the meatballs.
- Cook on low for 3 - 4 hours.
