Low Carb Crock Pot Meatballs are also gluten free and so easy to have ready in the crock pot!
Low Carb Crock Pot Meatballs have simple ingredients but great taste and the ease of the crock pot. I love the idea of homemade meatballs but hate the greasy mess of cooking them on the stove or in the oven. They also need to be gluten free and low carb.
A couple of notes: the recipe says 2 pounds of ground beef but sometimes packages come in 2.2 pounds (for some strange reason!) and I used the 2.2 pound package. That much difference is totally fine.
Also, I used the 93/7 meat/fat to have less grease to deal with. That is always my policy. Even if the 80/20 is cheaper, for 20% fat, I am throwing away 20% of what I bought! Yikes! I often find the lower fat meat on sale so buy it then and put it in the freezer until I need it.

They are pictured with and oh, so good with Creamy Spinach Cheese Bake.
2 pounds ground beef
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
14 oz can diced tomatoes
Mix all together except for the tomatoes.
Form meatballs from 1/8 cup of meat mixture.
Put them in a greased crock pot.
Pour tomatoes (juice too) over meatballs.
Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or on high for 4-6 hours.
I used 2.2 pounds of ground beef because that is what the package was. That much difference won’t matter.
I also used 93/7 ground beef to reduce the amount of fat in the bottom of the crock pot.
