Slow Cooker Sriracha Meatballs | © 2016 |

This is a quick and easy slow cooker recipe. Sriracha and honey come together perfectly as the hot and sweet sauce. If you like the meatballs more sweet than spicy, then simply add more honey. The meatballs stay really moist and tender and the sauce soaks up a lot of the meaty flavour with that long and slow cooking process.

  • 100 g Sriracha sauce
  • 150 g Honey
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp Fresh lime juice
  • 1 Red onion, sliced
  • 500 g Ground beef
  • 4 tbsp Bread crumbs
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Sriracha
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Combine sriracha, honey, minced garlic and lime juice in a slow cooker on high heat.
  2. In a large bowl add all the meatball ingredients and mix until well combined. Shape the mixture into meatballs about the size of pingpong balls.
  3. Stir sriracha sauce in the slow cooker until combined. Taste and add additional honey or sriracha as necessary to suit your heat preference. Add in sliced onions, then the meatballs. Reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, for 4-5 hours. | © 2016 | | © 2016 |

Slow cooked meatballs are best due to the infusion of the flavors and the spicy sriracha sauce with the touch of honey makes it even special. Nice share!

Chrissy Barua 26/4/16 20:55

I bet these are amazing! Can't go wrong with Sriracha!

Eva Taylor 26/4/16 23:52

What a coincidence Angie, I just posted a sriracha recipe on my blog yesterday! Great minds...
I've never thought to add sriracha to meat balls, but it's really a logical step, my very rich Italian meatballs contains a hotly spiced Bomba which is also home made and adds a delicious depth of flavour to the dish, as would a home-made sriracha sauce!

mjskit 27/4/16 04:21

In my book, Sriracha is like bacon. Everything is better with it. :) I'm sure these meatballs would be great without it, but with it - they've got to be freaky fabulous! I don't have a slow cooker, but I'm sure I can figure out how to make these without one. Great recipe Angie!

Katerina 27/4/16 10:09

I think we are both in a slow cooker mood! What delicious meatballs!

Pachecopatty 27/4/16 20:24

Angie-your site is always filled with amazing photos and recipes! I'm a huge meatball lover and with the Sriracha, oh wow!!!

Catherine 27/4/16 20:41

Dear Angie, These are such tasty and delicious looking meatballs. They would disappear in a NY minute!! xo Catherine

Evelyne CulturEatz 27/4/16 21:02

That is too funny, we are learning how a new colleague only eats super spicy and the joke is the Sriracha bottle at lunch. Will share with her and I am sure I would love this too!

Rahul @ 27/4/16 21:31

YUM! I loves sriracha on everything, but never thought about meatballs. Definitely going to try these…

Abbe@This is How I Cook 28/4/16 02:08
