Sweet and Sour Meatballs

I love using my crock pot and the fall season seems so appropriate to cook lots of yummy meals in it. These meatballs are a total crowd pleaser for sure and the yummy sauce is to die for! And of course it is and fix it and forget it meal so dinner is ready on busy nights. Enjoy!



1 lb. ground turkey

1/2 cup bread crumbs (I use Italian for more flavor)

1/4 cup fat-free milk

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 egg, beaten

2 tablespoons finely chopped or grated onion

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


1/3 cup packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons cornstarch

13 oz can pineapple chunks, undrained

1/3 cup vinegar

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 green bell pepper

1/3 cup water

1. Combine meatball ingredients in a bowl. Shape into 3/4-1 inch balls. (I use my little cookie scoop) Brown all sides in a non-stick skillet. Place in slow cooker.

2. Add brown sugar and cornstarch to same warm skillet. Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Pour over meatballs.

3. Place lid on cooker and cook for 3-4 hours on low. Pair these meatballs over rice (brown or white) and serve with steamed broccoli and you have a delicious healthily meal.

* If you like pineapple you can use the 20 oz. can. That's what we do and my hubby isn't a huge fan of peppers so I just leave them out and use lots of pineapple!
