DIRECTIONS

  • To prepare sauce juice the oranges (about 1 cup).
  • Prepare the 1/2 teaspoon orange zest to divide 1/4 teaspoon each between sauce and meatballs.
  • Mix all sauce ingredients in a microwavable bowl.
  • Heat to boiling.
  • Let stand 10 minutes.
  • Taste. Add additional hot sauce or brown sugar if desired.
  • Pour a small amount of sauce into the bottom of a 6 quart crockpot, just enough to cover the whole surface.
  • For meatballs mix the grated ginger and 1/4 teaspoon of the orange zest into the liquids to disperse them so that no one gets an unpleasantly concentrated suprise.
  • Mix all the ingredients together very well.
  • Form small meatballs and pack them firmly.
  • Brown the meatballs in skillet or oven.
  • Pile meatballs into the crockpot.
  • Cover with the rest of the sauce.
  • Cook on low for about 4 hours.
  • Stir every hour to make sure that all meatballs absorb the sauce equally.
  • Note:Prep time does not include time to brown meatballs because that will depend on the method chosen.
