These are soooo good. I make them each time I attend a pot luck. My slow cooker comes home empty each time! How do I give this recipe six stars?

I made this in my pressure cooker. First I sautéed celery onions carrots with red green yellow and orange peppers and threw in a few fresh cranberries. Then added the sauces, cooked a few mins for the sauces to melt together and the veggies to soften then added frozen(cooked) meatballs, used the rice (8 min) setting and they were awesome.

perfect mix

I've used jellied sauce and whole berry sauce. I like the cranberry mixed with the chili sauce better than grape and/or apple jelly. Simple and savory.

These are fantastic for Christmas parties, especially when you have a lot of other things to cook. Perfect slow cooker appetizer.
