I was able to put this all in the crock pot in about 5 minutes and then walked away. For the two of us, I served the meatballs over brown rice and called it dinner! These would also be perfect for a party snack; easy to throw together and keep warm in the crock pot.

To make this recipe really easy, I bought a bag of refrigerated original meatballs and used those. If you have a preferred recipe for your own meatballs, definitely use those! The bag was a pound and made more than enough for the two of us. We definitely have leftovers. I have a 6 quart crock-pot, and it probably could have fit 6 pounds worth of meatballs. That’s a whole lot of meatballs for a party.

Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Meatballs
Recipe type: Main
  • 1 lb meatballs
  • 6 oz chili sauce
  • 6 oz Grape Jelly
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • Pepper and Chili Powder to taste
  1. Mix thoroughly all ingredients other than the meatballs in the crock pot.
  2. Add meatballs and stir until all are coated.
  3. Cook refrigerated meatballs on high for 2 hours and frozen on high for 3-4 hours. If you are cooking a larger batch of meatballs, you will probably need to cook for longer. Also, if making for a party, I would recommend cooking on high for required time and then turning the heat down.
