This is an easy slow cooker meal that you’ll love. I’ve been making pineapple meatballs for years. This time, I decided to change things up by adding barbecue sauce.
I used precooked turkey meatballs. These have been flamed broiled, and there are loads of meatballs in the bag.
You’re going to need a can of pineapple slices or chunks.
One 28 oz bottle of barbecue sauce of your choice.
I add crushed red pepper flakes for a little heat which melds with the pineapple flavor. I use bay leaves in almost everything.
Chop some green pepper and red onions and put them in the bottom of a slow cooker.
Put the turkey meatballs and the can of pineapples with the juice into the slow cooker. I put the whole bottle of barbecue sauce on top of everything.
Add a bay leaf, red pepper flakes, black pepper, and sea salt. I also put a couple of splashes of Worcestshire sauce in to give the meatballs a richer taste. Let the mixture cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours.
I like to put the sweet and spicy Hawaiian Meatballs on a bed of rice. You can also layer it over spaghetti noodles or make a meatball sub with mozzarella cheese on top. Enjoy!
