Easy Hawaiian Meatballs
I’m all about the easy dinners, and this recipe definitely fits the bill!
In less than 10 minutes prep, you’ll have an amazing dinner cooking in your slow cooker.
I love how festive and colorful it looks on a plate, too. It’s a warm and welcome change from chicken for dinner.
When you take a bite, there’s so many yummy flavors!
The sweet hawaiian sauce, the peppers, the rice base, it all just comes together perfectly.
I rely on my Instant Pot to make dinner so easy. I love the flexibility it offers to make rice, slow cook, or even pressure cook your foods so you can skip the long cooking time when you’re in a pinch.
My Instant Pot has definitely become my go-to small appliance, I do everything with it.
Once the Hawaiian meatballs and the sweet bell peppers are ready, it’s as easy as dishing up dinner on top of a bed of rice.
You can dish up the meatballs and sauce and a separate bowl of rice to bring to the table so everyone can dish up their own portion, family style. This gives you seconds within easy reach, because you’re going to want them!
