  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch


  • First, drain the juice from your can of pineapple into a medium bowl (you'll need that later for the sauce.)
  • It should give you about a cup of pineapple juice.
  • Place frozen meatballs into your 4-6 quart crock pot.
  • Then top meatballs with pineapple chunks and green peppers.
  • Add brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce and cornstarch to the pineapple juice you set aside.
  • Whisk it all together well.
  • Pour sauce over meatballs.
  • Cover and cook on low for 2 hours.
  • After a couple of hours, switch your crock pot to high and cook for an additional hour.
  • Doing this will thicken the sauce.
  • The sauce should be thicker and bubbling around the edges.
