I love easy meals. Especially as it gets closer to the holidays, having some free time instead of cooking is nice. These slow cooker meatball subs has been one of my families favorite recipes for years. It takes about 10 minutes to put in the crock pot and you easily have dinner. I love the tangy sauce instead of a traditional marinara sauce. It’s a dinner the whole family will love.
Start by putting about 8-10 gingersnaps in a crockpot. Then add 1/4 a cup vinegar. I use the fork to mash up the gingersnaps.
Add 1 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp garlic salt and brown sugar. Then add 28 oz. of V8 juice and mix well.
Finally add meatballs, you can make your own or use store-bought. Allow to cook on high for about 3-4 hours. Then turn down to low for about 1 hour. Let cool for about 20 minutes. The V8 mixture should be thicker like a gravy now.
You can remove the meatballs and put them in a sub or hot dog bun. Then add a little spoonful of sauce on top of the meatballs and provolone cheese.
Skip the pizza delivery tonight and make these slow cooker meatball subs instead. With a few minutes in the morning you can have a delicious meal your whole family will love.
