There’s just no other way to describe these Cooked Perfect Frozen Meatballs other than fantastic! Seriously, they are convenient, quick, and delicious. I like to purchase the Angus Beef Meatballs which are very versatile. In addition to making Mongolian Beef Meatballs with them, you can try them with a more traditional marinara sauce, a honey garlic sauce, or a creamy Swedish meatball sauce.

Frozen food.

I serve Mongolian Beef Meatballs alone as well as with rice. Additionally, you can make sandwiches, pizzas, or serve the meatballs over pasta.

My oldest son loves to make meatball calzones. Simply use frozen or canned pizza dough, jarred pizza sauce, assemble and bake. This makes a tasty and quick Summer lunch or dinner.

Plus, Cooked Perfect Frozen Meatballs heat up equally as well in the oven, microwave, or on the stovetop. This makes them ultra-convenient for my boys to make their own meals or snacks. And, a great summertime staple. They heat up quickly and easily without heating up the house… very important when you live in the deep South as I do.

    1. It can be unsafe to cook from frozen in a slow cooker, depending on the slow cooker, and the size of the meatballs. The meatballs could sit in the “unsafe zone” for temperature too long and allow bacteria to grow. If you use these precooked, frozen meatballs, I would thaw them first. It will take 1 to 1.5 hours in the slow cooker for this recipe.

  1. The list of ingredients says “soy sauce of liquid aminos.” I assume it should read soy sauce or liquid aminos.

    My 14 year old picky-eater son wandered into the kitchen to ask what smelled so good. When he tried them he said, “these are the best meatballs I’ve ever had”. He proceeded to eat 30 of them. Growing boys!!
