Crock Pot Meatballs are a great low-effort recipe that allows you to put in the hours of cooking when you have the time and energy, and then enjoy it when you’re off work. Delicious meatball recipes also make for an easy family dinner. Crockpot meatballs keep well in the fridge, so be sure to prep them days or even weeks in advance and let them simmer away until you’re ready to heat them up!
This dish is perfect for a winter’s night. The sweet and sour meatballs with apricot jam is a dish that will tantalize your taste buds. The succulent meatballs are coated in a sweet and sour sauce, with just a hint of apricot jam. The perfect blend of flavors will have you wanting more.
For many years, one of our favorite chicken recipes has been Cindy’s Chicken. It’s a simple recipe but oh, so good! When we have a get-together, I often serve sweet and sour crockpot meatballs as one of the appetizers. Meatballs are always a huge hit with kids (and some of the adults). I wanted to serve meatballs but didn’t want them to be the same ones I always serve.
I decided to see what it would taste like if I used the sauce from Cindy’s Chicken on the meatballs. It was a good gamble. Our family now has a new favorite meatball recipe!
Easy Crock Pot Meatballs Recipe:
800 g cooked meatballs
250 mL bottle of Russian dressing
250 mL of apricot jam
3 Tbsp. dry onion soup mix
For this recipe, you can make your own meatballs from scratch and cook them or buy frozen pre-cooked meatballs.
In a bowl, mix together the Russian dressing, apricot jam, and dry onion soup mix. Place the meatballs in the crockpot and pour the sauce over top. Stir. Cook in the slow cooker on low for 2-3 hours.
If you are making these as a freezer meal, place the meatballs in a large resealable freezer bag. Mix the sauce together and pour into the bag. Squish together to combine, remove excess air from the bag, and seal. Freeze until ready to cook. Thaw. Pour into the crockpot and cook on low for 2-3 hours.
If serving these crockpot meatballs as an appetizer, you can set them out with toothpicks.
