Meatballs in Dijon Gravy

by Collette White | 2 September, 2019

Good Morning friends! I hope this finds you all well. I love the comfort food of meatballs in a sauce with mash but so many recipes I have for them have a tomato based sauce which I can’t eat. So I wanted to create a delicious, comforting meatball in gravy dish that my entire family can enjoy. Gluten, Dairy and Tomato free and absolutely delicious …. it may leaving you wanting to make a double batch next time! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! 



500g beef mince

500g chicken mince

¼ cup rice flour

1 tblspn parsley flakes

1 tspn garlic powder

good pinch salt and pepper

 ** ½ cup rice flour – extra

Dijon Gravy

3 brown onions – cut into eighths

2 cups bone broth or stock

2 heaped tblspns Dijon mustard

2 heaped tblspns honey

1 tspn garlic powder

1 heaped tblspn rice flour

To serve

Mash potato or rice and vegetables or salad


In a large bowl place all ingredients for the meatballs, except for the extra ½ cup rice flour. Combine thoroughly (I use my hands to do this as I find it works best).

Use a 1/3 cup scoop to make even sized meatballs. Once the meatballs are made, roll them gently into the extra rice flour and set aside.

Bring a large pan to a high heat and add a good drizzle of oil. Add the meatballs to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes until browned, set aside on a plate.

Add the onion to the pan and stir over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes – be careful not to burn them.

To the onions in the pan add the bone broth, dijon mustard, honey and garlic powder. Stir over a medium – high heat until this mixture is boiling.

Once boiling, reduce heat to low, add the rice flour and stir until all lumps are gone.

Add the meatballs to the pan with the gravy and place a lid on.

Cook for 10 minutes on low. Turn meatballs and cook for a further 10 minutes on low.

Serve immediately.
