These Slow Cooker Asian Meatballs make the perfect appetizer or dinner recipe. Everyone in my family loved this recipe! It's so simple to make, just add the ingredients to your slow cooker and walk away until dinner time.
Who doesn't love a good meatball? My kids love them, my husband loves them, and I love them.
These Slow Cooker Asian Meatballs not only make the perfect dinner but also the perfect party appetizer.
If you are serving them at a party just leave them in the slow cooker on warm and grab some toothpicks.
If you serve them for dinner try them over a bed of rice and on the side my recipe for garlic Asian green beans.
Slow Cooker Asian Meatballs:
Step one: Place frozen meatballs in your slow cooker.
Step two: In a small mixing bowl whisk together remaining ingredients.
Step three: Once those ingredients are well combined you can pour it over your meatballs and toss to coat.
Step four: Cook on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 4-5 hours.
When serving I garnished my meatballs with sesame seeds and diced green onions.
Of course, you don't have to use frozen meatballs. I find that they work well and cook quicker. If you would rather homemade meatballs you would need to use a few less to make sure they don't overcrowd your slow cooker and smush together when cooking.

Can you use fresh meatballs?
Can you us fresh meat? Roll them yourselves? If you do what would the adjusted cooking time be?
Yes, you can! If you are using uncooked I would place them on a baking sheet and freeze them so they don't stick together when cooking. If they are fresh and cooked then reduce the time a little when cooking. Hope that helps!
How long do you suggest cooking when using frozen meatballs?
I used frozen for this recipe so the same cooking time. Hope you enjoy!
Fantastic recipe! My son kept raving about the meatballs! We served them over rice mixed with a little soy... Thanks for sharing!
So glad you all liked it!
What sort of meatballs do you use? Thank you!
I used frozen homestyle meatballs.
I've made this before and it's very tasty. I'm going to try it again this weekend but also throw in some broccoli florets the last 20 minutes to get my veggies.
Can you use cooked frozen meatballs?
You could use that and just cook for less time.
These are going to be great! My son is a college student and these work perfectly over steamed rice. I can bring them remade with a rice cooker and rice. He will love it. It’s a quick easy meal for his busy lifestyle. Thanks for the recipe.
Thank you for sharing your talent. I love the sound of this. I will try it and get back with you on how it will turn out.
