Crockpot recipes are my jam. Mostly because when life gets busy (aka always), I can just dump my ingredients into the pot and just about ditch them.

Crockpot Sweet And Spicy Meatballs

This is exactly what I did last weekend which allowed me to urge more rest and make a few of additional recipes for the blog on an equivalent day.

My favorite part about this recipe is that the simplicity (though not as simple as my dad's famous 2-ingredient crock-pot meatball sauce) and variety .

Like it spicy? Add more sriracha. love it sweeter? Pour during a bit more sauce , honey or sugar . But don't let premature taste tests fool you – a flavor tasting before they're ready may trick you into thinking they're spicier than they really are because the liquids tend to separate.


For the meatballs:

  • 1.5 lbs Ground Beef
  • 1/3 cup White Onion chopped into small pieces
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup Italian Breadcrumbs
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce:

  • 1 cup Sriracha Sauce
  • 1 cup Honey
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/3 cup Barbecue Sauce
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika


  • cilantro


  1. Chop onions, garlic and thyme into small pieces.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, chopped onions, garlic, thyme, egg, breadcrumbs, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper.
  3. Using your hands, mix the meat and seasonings until evenly distributed.
  4. Roll 1-1 1/2-inch meatballs. Mixture makes about 2 dozen.
  5. In a small mixing bowl, use a whisk to combine the sriracha, honey, brown sugar, barbecue sauce and paprika until smooth.
  6. Put the meatballs in a crock-pot and turn it on high. Pour the sauce over the meatballs and stir to ensure even distribution.
  7. Cook the meatballs in the crock-pot on high for 4 hours, stirring periodically to avoid burning the bottom layer. Turn the heat to low if you feel your crock-pot is cooking too quickly, as these appliances vary in heat.
  8. Garnish with cilantro.
