This Spicy Cranberry Barbecue Meatballs recipe really is just about as easy to make as any recipe could be. The ingredients that go in to the Spicy Cranberry Barbecue Meatballs recipe are right there in the title, cranberries and barbecue sauce. These two ingredients get blended together and poured over the meatballs, which you pick up at the local grocery store. That will make the step of preparing the meatballs very easy to put together. And they are cheap to buy, too. The trick to this cranberry barbecue meatballs recipe lies with the amount of time that you put the meatballs in to the crock pot and let them cook.

The crock pot is perhaps the best single piece of equipment that you could put in to your kitchen. If you do not have one yet, be sure to get one soon. The crock pot was invented out of the Jewish tradition of leaving meat and other foods to cook over the night beside and also inside a slowly cooling oven. They did this because food could not be cooked on the Sabbath and this way families could still have hot meals on that day. The food always tasted fabulously. This was observed and an enterprising entrepreneur made a miniature oven, the slow cooker. When you put food in to this container it cooks in the same way at a very low heat and very slowly over a long period of time. When you cook this way, whether it is chicken, beef, lamb or even fish the meat turns out beautifully. That is partly because the meat, chicken or fish is kept under a lid so no liquids get lost and that makes the meat tender and juicy, and as well the length of time at such a slow and low heat makes the food turn out beautifully.

Make this meatballs recipe whenever you have friends coming over to your house, and you want to serve them something filling and fun, too. Meatballs are always a great snack for all, and everyone loves to eat them. These ones are cooked in the sweet and savory combination of barbecue sauce and cranberries and will soak some fabulous flavor in to the meatballs as they cook. You can serve them by themselves or put out a collection of raw veggies to go with them. You could cut up cucumber, celery, peppers and many other veggies that will taste great with the meatballs. And if you want, make these meatballs for the kids on a weekend when everyone is at home and you want a snack late at night. It will be great. Enjoy this dish soon with the kids and your family.
