This easy recipe for gluten free slow cooker meatballs is homemade with marinara sauce. They are simple to put into your crock pot for a party or dinner. This healthy recipe makes meatballs from scratch that can be served over pasta or eaten with a toothpick. I think this is the best recipe for gluten free meatballs! 



2 pounds Ground Beef
1/2 cup Rice Crumbs or Gluten Free Bread Crumbs
1 large Egg
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 small Yellow Onion, grated
2 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
3 tsp. Tomato Paste
1 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
2 tsp. Dried Oregano
2 tsp. Dried Basil
2 tsp. Dried Parsley
1 - 24 ounce jar Marinara Sauce


In a large mixing bowl mix together the ground beed, rice crumbs, egg, parmesan cheese, onion, garlic, tomato paste, salt, pepper, oregano, basil and parsley until well combined.

Turn your slow cooker on low. In the bottom of your slow cooker pour a thin layer of marinara sauce.

Begin making the meat mixture into golf ball sized meatballs and placing them into the slow cooker. Once all the meatballs are in pour the rest of the marinara sauce overtop.

Cover and cook for three to four hours. When the meatballs are finished the sauce will be bubbling and the meatballs will be browned on the outside.
