3 Ingredient Keto Crock Pot Meatballs Gluten Free, Low Carb, Simple and Delicious!

3 Ingredient Keto Crock Pot Meatballs; Gluten Free, Low Carb, Simple and Delicious!

These 3 Ingredient Keto Crock Pot Meatballs will make mealtime so quick and easy. Just add a side and you are set!

I just love that they are ready to eat when we walk in the door at dinnertime!

They take just a few minutes in the morning to assemble. They can also be made ahead and frozen!

At .1 carb per meatball, they are a great choice for a Keto or Low Carb diet.

The ground beef:

My meat came in a 2.25 pound package. I have no idea why they do that but that is what they had. (Edit; I recently had 2 kind readers point out that 2.25 pounds is 1 kg so that is why, I guess. It isn’t labeled as a kg; it is labeled as 36 oz and 2.25 lbs; still strange if you ask me. It seems like if it is a kg, it would be labeled as such. Anyway!) 

If you use two 1 pound packages, that is fine too. The cheese and egg measurements will still work just fine.

I don’t bother with seasonings but if you want to add salt and pepper or a steak seasoning to add more flavor, feel free. We always eat them with something else so have not felt it was necessary.

I usually use the 93% meat and 7% fat (93/7) when I buy ground beef. Especially in this recipe when the grease will just sit in the bottom of the crock pot, I don’t want extra fat in it.

I can almost always find it marked down so it is not much more expensive than the fattier meat. I just throw the extra grease away anyway so don’t want to pay for it.

That is just me though; use whatever you like! 🙂

What to eat them with:

It is pictured here with Creamy Spinach Cheese Bake and made a delicious dinner and leftovers for lunch for a few days. 

We eat them for dinner with zoodles or other low carb pasta and  homemade spaghetti sauce, as Low Carb Parmesan Meatballs, (below)

covered with Easy Homemade Alfredo Sauce or with one of many creamy vegetable side dishes.

They are also delicious cold for lunch dipped in sugar free ketchup or Ranch dressing.

Yield; 24 meatballs

  1. did you put some mushroom soup in the pot, or is that grey-brown stuff ooze from the meatballs?

    1. No, nothing but the 3 ingredients were added. That is just the grease from the meat. The meatballs are easy to scoop out of it. 🙂

    2. That would be the myoglobin coming out of the meat. Very common and 100% edible. It’s not grease either. It’s what gives the meat it’s color. In redmeats it turns brown or that gray as they are cooking. In white meat it turns it from the pink to white. In packaged meat in the stores that liquid that looks like blood, is the myoglobin.

    1. Hi Stef! I haven’t, but I don’t know why you couldn’t use ground turkey instead of ground beef. They should be interchangeable.

  2. Ok. Oh my goodness. Made these meatballs exactly as told to. Just tried one before the hubby got home. They are kinda plain and very dry. What can I add to make them more tasty?????? HELP

    1. Yes, Amanda! Absolutely! I do it all the time! I make a big batch and freeze them after cooking. 🙂

    1. Hi Krista, I have not made them on the stove but I am sure they can be. If you usually make meatballs on the stove, just cook them as you usually do.

  3. I am trying to find a great meatball recipe to add and hide liver in. Do you think this would work?

    1. Boy, that is a good question! And I am sorry but I have zero experience with liver hiding so I really can’t tell you. If I were to try, I would chop it up really fine and don’t know why it wouldn’t work to mix it with the ground beef that way but if you are trying to hide it, a burger mix with more ingredients may be a better option. You do really taste the beef in this recipe since that is mostly what it is. I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful! Good luck! 🙂

  4. DoThese stay firm like a regular meatball? Could you add spaghetti sauce in crock pot while they cook ? Thank you for a simple keto alternative.

    1. Hi Jennifer, Yes, they do stay nice and firm. Well, you could add sauce while the meatballs cook, but look at the picture of the meatballs in the crock pot after they are cooked. You will have all of that grease and “stuff” in with your sauce if you do. Personally, I would add the sauce after they are cooked and removed from that. I have heated them in the microwave easily in sauce after the main cooking time. That would be my recommendation. I think you would be much happier with them that way. 🙂

  5. As those of us in Canada will recognize, 2.25 lbs is slightly over 1 kilogram. Perhaps the reason for packaging in this amount. Just guessing!!

    1. Ah! Very good guess. I am sure you are correct. Living in the US all my life, I did not notice that; although I do know that 1 kg = 2.2 lb. 🙂 Thank you for pointing that out! 🙂

    1. You are my second comment pointing that out in 2 days after this being posted for over a year. 🙂 That makes sense. Thanks! 🙂
