  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" slices on an angle. Slice potatoes into ½" rounds. Mince chives. Combine ground beef, panko, and half the garlic salt (reserve remaining for slow cooker) in a mixing bowl. Divide beef mixture into 16-18 evenly-sized meatballs, about the size of golf balls.

  2. 2

    Start the Meal

    Place slow cooker liner in slow cooker, if desired. Fold top edges in before putting on lid. In a clean slow cooker, combine carrot, potatoes, remaining garlic salt, and cream cheese. Top with meatballs. Cream cheese will melt as meal heats. Turn slow cooker on to low heat. Cover, and cook until meatballs reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 hours.

    Stir in Sauce and Peas
