Pho has been one of my favorites, ever since I discovered it at a small family-owned restaurant near my parent’s house. It is in the same strip mall as my dad’s chiropractic office. I loved grabbing rice-wrapped spring rolls for lunch while I was working for him.

While I am definitely not new to Pho, I haven’t ever been able to try meatball pho, because meatballs typically aren’t gluten-free. Gluten Free Asian Meatball Soup is inspired by one of my favorites, Pho!

I was very excited to try Kitchen Accomplice when I heard about their products. I love cooking with broth and stock because it adds so much flavor to dishes. However, I usually only need a little bit for whatever recipe I need and end up wasting half of the carton.

Kitchen Accomplice makes concentrated broths, Wicked Juicy Burger stock concentrate, and even Bone Broth concentrate. It comes in a squeeze bottle (that lasts for 6 months in the fridge after opening) so that I can easily mix up a cup or two for a recipe, and not waste any!

I used the Roasted Garlic Wicked Juicy Burger in my meatballs, which gave them a great flavor, with minimal effort. I didn’t have to measure out a half a dozen seasonings to get the savory flavor I craved.

The same goes for the broth and noodles. All I did was add a good squeeze of Beef Bone Broth concentrate to some water, toss in some meatballs, and let it cook. Once the meatballs were done, I tossed in some rice noodles and let them simmer.

Ever since I got an Instant Pot, meatballs have had a regular spot in our dinner rotation. They are so easy to make! I will mix up a “family value pack” of ground beef, and scoop it into meatballs, and put them in the freezer. It is any easy way to make dinner one night, while also making dinner for a few nights in the future. I pull the frozen meatballs straight from the freezer, into my instant pot with sauce or broth and 18 minutes later, dinner is served.

Though we haven’t tired of classic spaghetti and meatballs, I like to switch things up with teriyaki meatballs, and now with this gluten free meatball pho. So easy, and so good!

      Hi Lorna, I used a gluten-free soy sauce (they are readily available, and I think I noted that was what I used). I’ve never seen a fish sauce that had gluten in it. I’ll make sure to note to use gluten-free fish sauce. Thank you.

    I’m always looking for dishes to switch up our dinner routine, this one looks so fun! I haven’t seen this broth but I’m definitely going to go check it out!

    Bone broth all the way! So good for you. Plus, one can never have enough Asian recipes. Love Asian-American food! (Not the real stuff though, lived in China for four months and basically starved).

    I’ve tried to cook Pho for a couple of times. So I think I should try your recipe soon cause it’s pretty easier than my Pho’s recipe. Haha! Thank you for this quick and easy follow intruction!

    I love eating Asian meatball soup very much. I thought it’s difficult and time consuming to make those meatballs ready. Thanks to you, I know some tips to make it easily, especially it’s gluten free !!! Thanks again for doing great job 🙂

    Pho is one of my favorite Vietnamese noodle soup. We typical boil the ox bone for many hours for the flavor to come out. We also add in raw beansprouts into the bowl on top of the noodles before pouring over the hot soup. Gives the dish a good contrast in texture.
