Slow Cooker Sunday: Sweet and Tangy Meatballs

This isn’t the normal type of meal I would cook.  I tend to lean toward fresh ingredients but I do love a cheat sometimes.   A while back I was in Ikea and got caught up in the moment and bought a 1kg bag of their frozen meatballs.  They’ve been clogging up my freezer ever since.

Last week I came across this very simple recipe from Six Sister’s Stuff for Tangy Meatballs which only has 3 ingredients!  The only challenge I had was finding grape jelly here in the UK.  So, I substituted Reduced Sugar Black Currant Jam.

It may not sound appetizing but it was really nice and most importantly the 5 year old loved it.

With impending snow falling I came to your blog for five days worth of slow cooking recipes so I could then go and shop for the next week and feel smug. Wrote out list Went to shops Realised list was on table at home. However I did remember this one so it is now in the slow cooker for tonight's dinner. MY slow cooker is woefully under used so I am looking forward to falling in love with it all over again with the help of your linky.
