Slow Cooker Hawaiian Turkey Meatballs

I love when I happen to find, or create, a recipe that's quick, easy to make, and inexpensive!  This meal is exactly that!  The recipe itself only requires 4 major ingredients, plus a few additional ones, that you probably already have around the house.  Prep time involves cutting the peppers into chunks and that's all.  After that is done, you just place all the ingredients into the slow cooker (crock pot) and let cook for 3-4 hours.  Your job is done!  It's that easy.

I chose to serve this over a bed of brown rice, and it turned out great!

Slow Cooker Hawaiian Turkey Meatballs

32 oz. package of precooked, frozen turkey meatballs
13.5 oz. can of pineapple chunks (set juice aside)
1 large green pepper, cut in chunks
1 cup light brown sugar (I like to use Splenda)

2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2/3 cup of vinegar
2 Tbsp. reduced sodium soy sauce

Place the meatballs in the bottom of a slow cooker (crock pot) then add in the pineapple chunks and green peppers.

In a small bowl whisk together the pineapple juice, light brown sugar, cornstarch, vinegar, and soy sauce.  Once combined, pour the sauce over the ingredients in the slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until the meatballs are cooked through.  Take lid off and stir occasionally throughout the cooking process.

Serve over a bed of warm brown rice!
