Slow Cooker Honey BBQ Meatballs

Recently, I was given a box of Moore’s marinades. Since I absolutely LOVE trying new products, I was eager to test them out. The first flavor that I knew I had to try was their Honey BBQ Wing Sauce. The sauce was spicy and sweet, smoky and tangy- adding the perfect balance of a spicy kick and a sweet stickiness to these meatballs. The sauce is made with real honey and molasses; and is gluten free, has no MSG, and is kosher. With a medium heat level, no wonder Moore’s Marinades calls this sauce their “fan favorite”.

Over the weekend, my hubby and I put together these meatballs, let them simmer in the slow cooker for a few hours, and then served them over rice. The flavor was amazing and the meal was a definite success. If you prefer, you could also serve these meatballs by themselves, in sandwich form, or over pasta!!

If you love different sauces, Moore’s Marinades is a must try! They offer Moore’s Original Marinade, Teriyaki, Asian Teriyaki, Honey BBQ, Buffalo Wing, Creamy Ranch Buffalo Wing, and Blue Cheese Buffalo Sauce.

These meatballs look SO good, Kristin! They’d be perfect for our church potluck dinners! I don’t think I’ve never seen Moore’s brand in the stores in Wisconsin, but I’ll definitely take a closer look next time I’m at the store.
