I still wanted to get Mom's recipe for this wonderful and easy meatball soup. He has been doing it for years. Because I love meatballs so much, we put a lot of them in this soup (2 pounds!). I could use 1 lb and adjust the seasoning accordingly, but why? WHY?!!

My mom and I did this together in her kitchen. I love to cook with mom. I always learn a lot. Everyone loved this soup and there was less than half left after a few hours. I had two bowls and my son loved it too. He is a sure winner!

Ingredients for Mom's Meatball Soup:

15 cups water 1 tablespoon salt 6-8 medium potatoes, diced 3 medium carrots, thinly sliced ​​Dill, fresh or frozen Pinch Freshly ground black pepper

Ingredients for the meat mixture:

2 pounds ground pork 1 teaspoon original Mrs. Dash or Mrs. Dash garlic 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 teaspoon salt 1 large egg 1/2 finely chopped onion

How to make the best meatball soup:

1. Add 15 cups of water to a large saucepan over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of salt and all of your chopped potatoes to the soup pot.

2. Bring to a boil and cook 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the carrots and toss them into the pot.

3. Add 1/2 cup 1/2 ″ pieces of thin spaghetti to the desired soup pot or pasta. Pasta is optional, but I've always liked it when Mom added it to soups.

4. Chop the onion (1/2 enters the meat mixture and 1/2 enters the soup in step 7).

5. Place the ground pork in a large bowl (store-bought ground pork works. I ground my own pork in the large holes in the mincer). Add 1/2 chopped onion, 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash, 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1 egg. Mix well.

6. Make dumplings rolling in your hands. They don't have to be perfect, just round. Throw them in your pot while you make them. Recruit a meatball helper to liven up (and speed up) things. Cook for at least 10 minutes or until the meatballs are well cooked and floating on top.

7. Meanwhile, heat a nonstick skillet over medium / high heat. Add 3 tablespoons of canola oil, finely chopped celery, and onion. I don't normally like celery in soups, but sautéing improves the flavor of the soup without exaggerating celery. Sauté until smooth and golden. Add it to the pot.

8. Add 1 beaten egg to the soup pot while stirring constantly so that egg lumps do not form. If you don't like the egg, you can skip it (the soup won't be missed).

9. Add 2 tablespoons of dill. Then add more Mrs. Dash and pepper to taste (mom added about 1/2 teaspoon pinch and 1/4 teaspoon pepper at the end).
