Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Meatballs

This recipe is a HUGE hit with my husband and sons! I must admit, though not a very big meat eater myself, I REALLY like this one!

For the Meatballs:
1 lb ground turkey(you can use beef I suppose)
about 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, I use fresh
1 egg
1 Tb cornstarch
1 Tb dried minced onion
salt and pepper
mix together in bowl and form into balls. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes turning once. Place in crockpot.

For the Sauce:
mix in bowl:
3 Tb cider vinegar
1/2 cups sugar
1 Tb soy sauce
3 Tb cornstarch

Pour this over meatballs in crockpot.

Cook on low 4-6 hours. I check on it after several hours to be sure the sauce isn't evaporating too much, if it is I add about 1/4 cup water.

About an hour before you plan to eat add some chopped fresh onion and green bell pepper. You can add it during cooking time, but I like mine a little firmer. Also add one can of pineapple chunks with juice.

Serve over rice.
