How to Make BIG EARL'S PARTY MEATBALLS
- Pour the four bottles of chili sauce into a large crock pot. Rinse each bottle out with the apple cider vinegar. After rinsing the fourth bottle add the vinegar to the crock pot.
- Add the crushed pineapple, grape jelly, brown sugar, hot sauce, jalapeno peppers, and carbonated cola into the crock pot. Cook on medium for about 1 hour, stirring until the sugar is dissolved, the jelly has melted, and all the ingredients are completely incorporated.
- Add meatballs and stir to coat them with sauce. Cook on low for about six hours if the meatballs were frozen, about three hours if they were thawed. Stir occasionally.
- About 1 hour before serving add the pineapple tidbits and continue to cook on low.
