The slow cooker orange Sriracha meatballs recipe was inspired by a competitor I met in a 2019 cooking contest.  I won the championship of that crock pot recipe competition with Chinese roast pork shoulder with royal sauce

That contestant made BBQ cocktail meatballs.  Her inspiration made me think that I could make something similar with Chinese fusion.  That's how this recipe came about.

CHEF NOTES

There are different sizes of meatballs in the market.  I found that Italian style in bite size is the best.  It made the dish appeared more for the guests.  And it is easier for serving.

One tablespoon of Sriracha sauce sounds too little for this big pot of meatball finger food.  It is in fact perfect for all age group.  The first time I made this recipe, I used two tablespoons of this hot sauce.  WOW.....the flavor was so intense that I felt like I could spit fire.  For a person, like me, that can take a lot of heat and think it is too much.  You know how hot it was.  So, it is better to have less heat to start with.  You can always add more later.

You can easily turn this recipe into a dinner.  Here are a few suggestions for you.  1) Make it a lettuce wrap dinner.  2) Served with steamed white rice, OR  3) Serve along with lettuce and white rice at the same time and let everyone to choose how they want to assemble their dinner.  This will be a lot of fun.
