Dr. Pepper Meatballs
These can be served as an appetizer or over rice as a meal. I used them as an appetizer and they were delicious! Really easy to make when you buy ready-made meatballs.
- 2 pounds frozen meatballs (store bought or homemade)
- 1 (12-oz. can) Dr. Pepper
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup brown sugar (dark or light)
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Combine everything except meatballs in a dutch oven or similar pot on stove top. Stirring constantly, bring just to a boil over medium high heat.
Carefully add frozen meatballs and stir to coat. Continue to cook over medium heat until sauce has reduced by at least half and is nice and thick (roughly 20 minutes), stirring every so often to prevent meatballs from burning.
