  • 1 pound meatballs
  • 6 ounces chili sauce
  • 6 ounces Grape Jelly
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder


  1. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together other than the meatballs in the slow cooker.

  2. Add meatballs and stir until well coated.

  3. Cook refrigerated meatballs on high for 2 hours and frozen meatballs on high for 3-4 hours. Stir a couple times throughout for even cooking. 

    If you are cooking a larger batch of meatballs, you will probably need to cook for longer.

  4. Once meatballs are cooked thoroughly, turn the heat down to ensure they stay warm and don't overcook.
