Slow Cooker Pineapple Barbecue Meatballs


Enjoy these meatballs in a wonderfully tangy sauce! Use your favorite flavor of barbecue sauce. When the meatballs are done, you can place them in a slow cooker/server to keep them warm.

Sweet and sour are two delicious tastes that go together so well. The combination of tangy pineapple and tender beef is a popular combo that really hits the spot, making this particular dish a great choice for kids and adults alike! As an extra bonus, it’s an easy recipe only requires a short, budget-friendly list of ingredients with zero chopping and no stove time either – thanks to your trusty slow cooker! It’s hard to believe that something so simple can taste this good, but it’s true…

I never thought to just add barbeque sauce to meatballs for a quick recipe. I was in a hurry the other night and used frozen pre-made meatballs and Kraft Hickory-Honey bbq sauce. It was a big hit with guests!

Pineapple is something you can find in the canned section of most any grocery store. It’s pretty commonly used in baking, but why not take a savory approach and use it with beef instead of just ham? Pineapple really brings out the rich flavors and makes the sauce taste that much better! Speaking of sauce – any barbecue brand you like will do the trick. It’s all about easy with this meal, so there’s no need to make your own. One bottle will do and in it goes with the sweet juice from the pineapple. Boy, does it make the meatballs burst with flavor! Thankfully, there are so many frozen and refrigerated meatball options (meat and even meatless) available to save you a ton of time.

This recipe is a hit every time I make it. Everyone always enjoys it!! The recipe is great just the way it is. The only thing I did different was after baking the meatballs in the oven for 25mins I put them in a crock pot and than pour the BBQ sauce in and cook for 2 hrs on slow!! PERFECT.

Nothing beats a mouthwatering, make-ahead meal that satisfies everyone at the table and can also be served in volume as a party show-stopper. The idea that anyone can enjoy a dish of savory meatballs, chunky bits of pineapple, and amazing sauce – all without the use of a stove or oven – is such a beautiful thing! Isn’t it nice to know that you’re only one slow cooker and five ingredients away from an unforgettable meal?!

Very impressed! I made these with the BBQ sauce from the Barbecued Beef recipe from this website (make double the quantity) and the meatballs go very well with the sauce. I added quarter of a teaspoon of chili powder and 1 tablespoon of ground cumin to the meatball recipe and they were great. It only took a tablespoon and a half of milk to hold the beef and bread crumbs mixture together. I served it over tagliatelli pasta.
