This is a great recipe for the busy person, as it can be made in the slow cooker. If you use all pre-made frozen items, there is virtually no prep time. I prepared my own meatballs and used fresh onions and peppers, as it was cheaper for me. When frozen meatballs and vegetables go on sale, I will be using that.

I usually don't have much time to make things from scratch, so I usually use frozen meatballs, but any recipe that you like is fine.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large bag frozen meatballs
  • 1 jar duck sauce
  • 1 jar sweet and sour sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey

Directions:

Put all into crock pot, cover and heat on low for at least 4 hours. If the sauce is not thick enough, remove the meat balls into a large bowl. Leave the lid off the crock, and turn it to high for 30 minutes, or until the sauce thickens. Return the meatballs to the sauce, and stir well.

May serve on a platter with toothpicks inserted into each, and either spoon the sauce over, or serve in a bowl along side for dipping.

Servings: 6-8
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cooking Time: 4 Hours
