Pineapple-Glazed Meatballs

Today’s recipe is a speedy stove top meal that only takes 4 ingredients.  The main ingredient being fully cooked meatballs.  I love to get fully cooked meatballs when they go on sale to keep on hand for quick meals like this.  When they go on sale you can get them for the same price of ground beef in the meat department.  It’s the same price without all the work of making the meatballs.  This dish can also become an appetizer by cutting the barbecue sauce and pineapple in half and forgoing the rice.

Pineapple-Glazed Meatballs

  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 cup undrained crushed pineapple in juice
  • 1 (16 oz) pkg fully cooked frozen meatballs

  1. In a skillet combine the barbecue sauce and pineapple together.  Add meatballs and stir until coated.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat.  Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes or until heated through.  Serve over rice.  Serves 4-6.

  • Was looking for something to do with freezer-burned frozen meatballs. This was perfect. Prep time was about 3 minutes, most of which was knocking the ice crystals off the meatballs. Cooked them for about 2 hours in the crockpot and my husband devoured them. Sauce is tangy sweet and sour. Who would have guessed? A hit!
