Great crock pot dish for picnics or parties! You can use homemade meatballs or buy frozen ones. If you use homemade you need to brown the meatballs first before cooking them in the sauce. Can be served alone as horderves or in rolls as a sandwich.

- 1 1⁄3 cups ketchup
- 4 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 1⁄3 cups water
- 1 cup cider vinegar
- 4 tablespoons cornstarch
- 5 lbs small meatballs (1", size)
- In a large sauce pan bring the sugar, ketchup, water & soy sauce to a rolling boil.

- Once ingredients in the sauce pot boil, add the corn starch/vinegar mixture to thicken the sauce.
