For the Manny Pacquaio Sugar Shane fight, I was tasked with coming up with a new recipe for meatballs to serve up at the party. Host Reggie said he’d have some rum, and asked me to “do what you do”. I apologize for not having pics. too much was going on at the party. but here’s the dish.  Note: this is NOT for kids.  :o)

Malibu Coconut Rum
1 bag of your fav frozen meatballs. (we used the kinds you bake in the oven for 20 mins first), or you can make your own from scratch.
Large bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce.
Large bottle of pineapple chunks in juice, (not syrup)

After baking the meatballs for about 20 minutes, add them to a crockpot and turn to high. Add Malibu to the crock pot to cover about 1/3 of the meatballs. Cover and cook for about 30 minutes, stirring every 10. Add barbeque sauce and cover. Cook for another 30 minutes, stirring every 10. Add pineapples (save juice), stir, cover, and  cook for 30 minutes, stirring every 10. Add pineapples, stir, cover, and cook as long as you like (at least 30), stirring every so often. when you’re ready to eat, just reduce heat to warm and enjoy.

The early stages of the recipe ensure the juiciness of the meatballs. Keep in mind, the pineapples will become intoxicated and are yuuuuuuummy!  Let your guests know that there are pineapples in there as they tend to sink to the bottom out of sight.
