Albondigas Soup

Heather makes the best soups I have ever had.   My bragging has caused a number of people to ask for the recipes.  As I pull out the Heathers 900 year old hand written recipe cards, I will do my best to post my favorites.  Today’s soup selection in Albondigas Soup:

  • 1T Chop Fresh Cilantro
  • 1lb Ground Beef
  • 1/4 cup Rice
  • 1 Egg
  • 1t  Seasoned Salt
  • 1/4 cup Ice Water
  • 3 cans Chicken Broth
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Onion
  • 1 rib Celery Diced
  • 1 Carrot Diced
  • 1 Potato Diced
  • 1/4t Garlic Powder

In a medium bowl combine ground beef, rice, egg, cilantro, salt, an water; form into small meatballs.  In large saucepan, combine broth with vegetables and garlic powder.  Bring to boil; add meatballs.  Reduced heat; cover and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Serves 6-8.

God has given us a girl
