Mix together 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup of water, a 12 oz. jar of chili sauce, and 1 can of whole berry cranberry.
Pour into a slow cooker.
Open a bag of frozen meatballs and mix it into the sauce.
Cook on high 4-5 hours.
I served the meatballs over steamed rice and parmesan green beans.
Bell's Meatballs (original recipe)
1 pkg of homestyle meatballs
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. water
1 - 12 oz. bottle Heinz chili sauce
1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
1/2 can sauerkraut (it calls for a whole can, but I'm thinking about cutting back on it some)
Cook the meatballs about 15-20 minutes to brown up some at package directions.
Simmer the next 5 items on a lot heat about 20 minutes.
Pour over meatballs and cook at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Cars and Ribbons variation: Mix everything (I didn't use sauerkraut) but the meatballs and pour into a slow cooker. Add in the meatballs. Cook on high for 4 hours.
