Spicy Chili Crockpot Meatballs

On a mission to find a new recipe for the crockpot.  I searched Pinterest for inspiration. I was limited with ingredients on hand and I already visited the market. Below is the recipe created with what I had.

Spicy Chili Crockpot Meatballs

1.5 pounds lean ground beef
2 eggs with white thingies removed
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped white onion
a few shakes Lawry's garlic salt
a few twists of fresh black pepper grinder
a few shakes dried parsley
a few shakes dried chives
1 tbs Lea & Perrins Worchestershire sauce

Mix the above ingredients together until well combined and shape into tablespoon sized meatballs.  Brown meatballs in a pan with olive oil until they are lightly browned OR bake on an aluminum foil lined cookie sheet for 25-30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

In your lightly oiled crockpot combine the following ingredients

1 10.1 ounce bottle of Trader Joe's Sweet Chili Sauce
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce
a few shakes Lawry's Garlic salt
a few twists of fresh black pepper grinder

Add meatballs and gently stir until all meatballs have a little sauce on them.  Set the crockpot on low and cook for 6-8 hours.

Serve over

Chive Parsley Calrose Rice

2 cups Calrose rice
4 cups water
2 tablespoons butter
1 tbs dried chives
1/2 tbs dried parsley
a few shakes Lawry's Garlic salt

Combine in a rice cooker
Serve your Spicy Chili crockpot Meatballs over rice and enjoy.  The husband tasted and approved the recipe.  I had it for dinner last night and today for lunch.  It is excellent day off and even better the next day as left overs.
