Impress your friends by adding these simple ingredients to add a new twist to an old recipe. The green bell pepper and pineapple add flavor to the meatballs in a way that you truly will not believe!

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 2 hours
Ready in: 2 hours 10 min
Yields: 4-5 adults


  • 1 large Green Bell Pepper, Chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Corn Starch
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 32 oz bag Frozen Meatballs, Thawed
  • 13 oz can Pineapple, Chunks

Easy Instructions

  1. Cook all ingredients together (not including the meatballs) on medium to high heat until the corn starch disappears and the brown sugar melts to begin carmelizing and makes a thick sauce.
  2. I prefer to not drain the pineapples while adding them to the pot, but it is up to you. Personal preference.
  3. Add all ingredients (including frozen meatballs) to crockpot and cook for 2 hours on medium heat. If your crockpot only has warm, low, high settings like mine does, cook on high and stir occasionally to keep the bottom meatballs from burning. All bell pepper should be soft and the pineapple should be caramelized with the sauce.

Cook everything together first to form a sauce

Choose your favorite brand of frozen meatballs. We use Walmart brand, because we found the quality to be the same, at a reduced price.

Time and Heat

I'm still amazed at what a little time and heat will do for a recipe. All these items blend wonderfully together to form an amazing side dish or main entree.

      Oh yeah. That looks good. I remember when I was a kid, and my dad loved to make stuff in the crockpot. It's like the BEST THING EVER! You just dump a bunch of food in there before you head out for school/work, and when you come home you have the most tender, juicy, flavorful meal ready to scoop out and eat.

      LOVE it! =)
