meatball soup



Meatball soups are quite popular world-wide. It doesn't matter what animal the ground meat comes from; the method remains the same. Of course, each animal will give the soup its own distinctive flavor.

I do occasionally make meatball soups, add the meatball for extra flavor; but I don't normally boil meatballs just for the sake of getting a meatball soup. If anything, I get the soup as a by-product of boiling the meatballs for another recipe.   

When you intend to boil meatballs, don't be stingy on the condiments you put in them. A lot of the flavor of the meat and condiments will tranfers to the soup and the meatballs will be blander than when pan-fried only. Pan-frying meatballs before boiling them improves their flavor after boiling too.


This is what you need for 4 servings:

  • 1 lb ground pork meatballs
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • olive oil
  • S&P
  • your favorite spices
  • other vegtables of your choice
