We’re continuing our pineapple theme from yesterday with this easy slow cooker recipe for Sweet ‘n Sour Meatballs. Anastasia loves dinners that cook themselves, and this recipe is about as easy as they get. Just defrost the meatballs and pineapple in the refrigerator overnight, and throw everything into the slow cooker first thing in the morning before heading to work. Serve over egg noodles, cous cous, or rice.

Sweet ‘n Sour Meatballs
(serves 4)

2 lbs. frozen, pre-cooked turkey meatballs, defrosted
2 cups frozen pineapple, defrosted
6 carrots, peeled and halved
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup all fruit peach spread
1 can (14.5 - 16 oz.) diced tomatoes
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup barbecue sauce

Place meatballs, pineapple, dried cranberries, and carrots in a slow cooker. Add tomatoes. Mix together jam, broth, and barbecue sauce. Pour over meat and vegetables. Cook on low 8-10 hrs.
