Today I’m sharing a delicious meal that is easy to make and contains fruit, veggies, protein, and served with a starch..it’s a perfect all in one meal!!
Here’s what you need for the recipe…
Minnie says, “Don’t forget to add peppers if you want to!”
Start by slicing your peppers and place in the bottom of your greased crock pot. I used 1 green pepper and 1 red pepper in my recipe.
Mix the pineapple chunks, water, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar and cornstarch in a bowl and set aside.
Open your bag of frozen meatballs (no need to thaw them) and place them on top of the sliced peppers.
Pour sauce over the top of the meatballs, put the lid on and cook on low for 4 hours. Serve on top of a big scoop of rice!! (Yes, I picked out only the red peppers, cuz the green ones are NOT my favorite!) In all truth, I think one of my kiddoes chose not to have any peppers! This recipe is so versatile!!
Here is the printable recipe in it’s entirety!

This recipe sounds so good. I believe I will make it, except I would make my meat balls from scratch. When I have checked the frozen ones there are so many ingredients that I have no clue what they are. They must be chemicals, which are not healthy for us.
I purchase meat from a good meat market. I regrind the meat and I make meat balls and brown them in the oven. Then freeze then in single layers & place in bags for future use. Then I do not have to think about chemicals.
