This is my go-to slow cooker meatball recipe. It’s so easy, there’s only 3 ingredients


1 (32-ounce) bag frozen fully cooked meatballs
1 (18-ounce) jar grape jelly
1 (18-ounce) bottle barbecue sauce
1/4 cup water
Optional: chopped green onions or parsley for garnish


  1. Place the frozen meatballs in the slow cooker.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the grape jelly, barbecue sauce, and water. Whisk together until well blended.
  3. Pour the sauce mixture over the meatballs in the slow cooker, making sure all meatballs are coated with the sauce.
  4. Set the slow cooker to low heat and cook for 4 to 5 hours, or until the meatballs are heated through and the sauce is thickened. Alternatively, you can set the slow cooker to high heat and cook for 2 to 3 hours.
  5. Gently stir the meatballs to ensure they are evenly coated in the sauce before serving. If desired, garnish with chopped green onions or parsley.
  6. Serve the meatballs with toothpicks or small serving forks, and enjoy as an appetizer or a main dish alongside your favorite sides.
