Sometimes you just need a no-brainer recipe for dinner, and this fits the bill in spades. These are so easy, even your budding ‘Chopped’ 5 year old could make them. No fancy ingredients by the dozen required either. Only 3 simple, everyday ingredients and a slow cooker are needed to transform ho-hum meatballs into a wonderfully sweet and tart sauced dish worthy of chefs extra-ordinaire Scott Conant or Aarón Sanchez…ok, maybe not actually them, but your family will love them nonetheless!
1 500 ml jar Chili Sauce
1 500 ml jar Grape Jelly
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
50 Meatballs (*see directions below)
*Make meatballs as per recipe above, but do not use pasta sauce to cook meatballs in. Instead, pour 2 cups beef broth over meatballs and bake at 350°F for approx. 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels and place into Slow Cooker.
