Slow Cooker Asian Meatballs
Who here loves MEATBALLS?! I haven’t always loved them but was glad that changed several years ago when I actually decided to give them a try. Homemade Meatballs are the best, but there are also so many great recipes using frozen meatballs that we love just as much. Today’s Asian Meatballs happen to be one of those recipes.
We LOVE all the Asian flavors and love meatballs and were glad we finally made an Asian meatball recipe that everyone loved. Not only were the flavors great, but we loved that these were make in the slow cooker which means they are easy peasy!!
We love how great the sauce ended up tasting because it added so much flavor. These can be served on their own or would be great served with white rice, brown rice or noodles. We added toothpicks to serve, making them great for a party!

What changes are needed to the cooking time if you used fresh ground beef?
That is a good question. I haven’t tried using fresh ground beef. They probably wouldn’t take the 4 hours, but still maybe the 2. You can check them at 2 hours & see if they need more time or not.
My family loves this recipe!!! It is so easy and so flavorful! This recipe made it on our rotation because no one complains and everyone eats it!! Winner!
