This recipe is only has 3 ingredients - frozen meatballs, BBQ sauce and 100% DOLE® Canned Pineapple Juice. I used a honey chipotle BBQ sauce to give the meatballs a little kick. The 100% DOLE® Canned Pineapple Juice gave the meatballs a little sweetness and mellowed out the chipotle BBQ sauce. We loved the flavor!
We really love using pineapple juice in all types of recipes. 100% DOLE® Canned Pineapple Juice is so versatile. We love it in smoothies, punch, cocktails, and marinades. We often swap it out for orange juice in recipes. We always have a six-pack in the pantry. They don't call it the “King of Juices™" for nothing!
These quick BBQ Pineapple Meatballs can be made on the stovetop in about 20 minutes or simmered for a few hours in the slow cooker. To make the meatballs more festive, I served them on top of some puff pastry cut out in the shape of a star. Perfect for the holidays. If you aren't looking for holiday party food, you can serve the meatballs over some rice or noodles for a quick meal. Either way, you should make these BBQ Pineapple Meatballs. They are delicious!!
