Slow Cooker Spicy Coconut Meatballs
I loved these spicy coconut chicken drumsticks so much that I wanted to use a similar sauce and cook meatballs in it. The results were amazing. The sauce was good enough to drink. I even made homemade naan bread to go with it. Which was super fun because I just bought my first pizza stone and I was excited to use it for the first time! I used the meatballs that were the frozen kind in a big bag from Costco but you could make homemade meatballs if you prefer. I always use full fat coconut milk, but if you want you can always use the low fat kind. I used green thai curry paste but you can also use red thai curry paste. If you are scared of the spice I would cut the sriracha in half and then add a bit more at a time if you want.

What Slow Cooker Did You Use?
For this slow cooker spicy coconut meatballs recipe I used my 6 quart oval Kitchenaid slow cooker. I love this slow cooker (you can see me talking about it in a video here). It cooks low and evenly. I love the medium heat choice because most slow cookers that I’ve seen only have the option of cooking on low or high. If you’re going to buy just one slow cooker, this is the one that I recommend.
