Easy 3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Hawaiian Meatballs

An easy appetizer for a crowd that can double as a main dish for your family, only requires 3 ingredients and can be prepared in the slow cooker – that’s a win in my book. I first served these Slow Cooker Hawaiian Meatballs at Lily’s Luau, and when I was looking for a quick and warm appetizer for a recent small group gathering at our house my husband suggested I serve these. My daughter added that I should make enough for plenty of leftovers because they like them so much.

Slow Cooker Hawaiian Meatballs Ingredients

1 bag Frozen Homestyle Meatballs

2 small cans  of crushed pineapple

1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce (We love Sweet Baby Ray’s original, and I use the 14 oz bottle.)


Mix pineapple (do not drain) and BBQ sauce.

Cover meatballs with the mixture in the slow cooker.

Cook on low for 4 hours – stirring occasionally. (Mine tend to scorch if I don’t stir often enough.)

That’s all there is to it to create savory and tangy Hawaiian Meatballs.

We served them as an appetizer/snack with a few other finger foods, but you could easily serve over rice or even as a non-traditional meatball sub to make an easy family dinner.

I promise, this is one of those go-to recipes (well, if you can even call it a recipe) that can serve you well in so many different situations. Tuck this one away for future reference or try a batch with your family this week. (A pinnable image is included below for your convenience.)

Until then…

Stay humble, work hard, be kind.
