    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Quarter mushrooms. Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ½" slices on an angle. Combine ground pork, panko, and half the garlic salt (reserve remaining for slow cooker) in a mixing bowl. Divide pork mixture into 12 evenly-sized meatballs, about the size of golf balls.

    Start the Meal

Combine carrot, remaining garlic salt, mushrooms, white portions of green onions, sweet chili sauce, and garlic sesame sauce in a clean slow cooker. Top with meatballs. Turn slow cooker on to high heat. Cover, and cook until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4 hours.
