Easy Gluten-Free Meatballs in Red Sauce

Who doesn't love meatballs? My family definitely does, so it was imperative that I come up with an equally awesome recipe when we cut out the gluten.

This gluten-free meatball recipe is enough for about 6 people. I also included a couple of ingredient variations for those of you on dairy-free and/or egg-free diets. Enjoy!


  • 2 lbs ground grass-fed beef
  • 2/3 cup rice flour or almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon whole root turmeric powder, optional (added for its excellent health benefits)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (omit for dairy-free version)
  • 1 large egg (sub 1/4 cup water or broth for egg-free version)

Plus 1 large jar organic red sauce for cooking


  1. Combine all ingredients and form into meatballs.
  2. Spread 1/2 cup pasta sauce on the bottom of the slow cooker. Place meatballs into slow cooker one layer at a time with additional pasta sauce between layers and on top.
  3. Cook 5-6 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high.
  4. Serve sauce and meatballs with mashed potatoes or gluten-free noodles.

On a side note, I usually make a double batch and freeze half for a later date. Meatballs freeze soooo nicely!

    I LOVE meatballs!! I’m not sure why I rarely share recipes for them on my blog. These look amazing, I wish I could just reach through the screen and munch on these.
