Hi Ladycook

Potentially an oxymoron in culinary terms but not when described as meatballs served in a Stroganoff sauce.

Hookied up - here is one version of Meatball Soup (Mexican). There is another called Italian Wedding Soup that is popular (of course) in Italy. These meatballs are tender and tasty...we love them.



The broth -

5 tomatoes (or used canned, chopped tomatoes)
1 clove garlic
1 small onion
1 TBS canned adobado sauce from canned chipotles in adobado
3 TBS oil
3 cups water or chicken stock . If you use water, add chicken or tomato stock granules to taste

In a blender or food processor, blend the tomatoes with the garlic, onion and chipotle sauce. Fry in the oil for about 10 minutes to mix the flavors. Add the water or broth and cook for 10 minutes.

The meatballs -

kilo (one pound) ground beef
kilo (one pound) ground pork
1 cup cooked rice
4-5 tomatillos
2 eggs
5 leaves mint (or cilantro), chopped
2 chipotle chiles in adobado sauce
2 cloves garlic
1 small onion
1 TBS chicken or beef stock granules

Mix the chopped tomatillos, garlic, onion, mint/cilantro, eggs, stock granules and chiles in the blender or food processor. Put the meat in a bowl and add the rice and stock granules. Stir in the blended mixture and mix well. Shape into balls the size of walnuts and cook in the tomato broth for 15-20 minutes. Serves eight.

Saludos, Karen

o fortuna!

you recipe looks good. maybe we should write a very dramatic song about meatballs!

or we could use this one:
Carl Orff – O Fortuna – Listen free at Last.fm

I used to work at sheep cloning factory. The hardest part was staying awake during inventory...

I love any kind of meatball!

Thanks to Jamie Oliver I have made cheat's meat ball a couple of times recently by opening a sausage or too and squeezing dollops of the sausage meat into a hot frying pan. Great for topping a soup or a risotto or pasta dish quickly. adding some rosemary or thyme to the pan makes a quick cheats trick smell and taste like a toiled over dish. :)
