One of my favourites, I don’t love cooking with mince in the slow cooker but this recipe changed that for me.. I do add more vege in the balls and as a side to the dish, but otherwise I dont change anything. I usually double the recipe as i have a large slow cooker, and i suits me as i use the leftovers as a pasta sauce/bolognese. Yum.. Great recipe thanks!

OMG. OMG. I say that 1 more time. OMG.
I’ve never been a meatball kinda guy. But. This was so delicious my taste buds were doing back flips. I cooked yesterday, kept in fridge 24 hours then reheated. The sauce reduced down to be thick and tasty.
Wow. What a winner. Thanks for the recipe. 👌😁

Yes 🙂

Does the uncooked rice go into the meatballs?

Yep that would be fine April 🙂

Hi just wondering if the amount would be ok for a 4.5 litre slow cooker?

Simple and tasty. A double batch in my large slow cooker worked well, and I used Passatta instead of tomato soup. I stirred it gently a couple of times, and cooked it 1 hour on high, 2 and 1/2 hours on low. Lovely served with grated fresh Parmesan cheese on pasta.

Im wanting to make this for dinner tomorrow night but wondering if I doubled the recipe would I need to double the amount of eggs in the mixture?

It would be runnier and not as rich flavour 🙂

My husband doesn’t generally like meatballs, but when the plate came back it was empty definitely hit in this house

I think that may be too long for this one I’m afraid?

I made two lots of this, one family served it on mashed potato (absolutely delicious) and the other family served theirs with vegetables and loved it as well. Ages from 40ish to almost 2 and everyone ate it, even the fussy eaters!!!

My family loved this recipe, from a 40 ish year old to a two year old. I had made two lots, one family had it on rice (absolutely delicious) and the other family had it with vegies and loved it as well.

Made this tonight…. sooooo good!
I used about 800grams of mince and was short on time, so cooked it for 3 hours on high!….. My master 11 even asked for there to be some left for school tomorrow!!
