The other night the hubby and I were talking about our Superbowl menu. I told him that I had been thinking about making meatballs but I wanted to try this sauce that I found online. The sauce uses chili sauce and grape jelly. Sounds gross, right? That's what he thought too, but I had already tried it before so I knew that as disgusting a combination as that sounds, it actually makes for a really good sauce. Of course I had to modify the recipe a little bit because I am big on seasoning everything, but I have to say it came out really good. For the actual Superbowl party, I plan on making my own meatballs, but since we were mainly trying out the sauce, we used frozen ones that were already cooked. Here is the recipe, hope you enjoy!
1 bag frozen “home-style” beef meatballs
12 oz. bottle chili sauce
1 cup grape jelly
½ cup barbecue sauce
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1. Place frozen meatballs in crock pot on high.
2. Combine all remaining ingredients in pot and bring to boil.
3. Pour over meatballs and let cook in crock pot for 2-3 hours on low to incorporate flavors.
