MEATBALL SOUP RECIPE-

This noodle soup is loaded with homemade meatballs, potatoes and carrots in a flavorful broth. It’s so hearty (kind of reminds me of our Borscht), it hits the spot when soup cravings kick in.

Though we share so many Soup Recipe, this is by far one of our kids’ favorites.

INGREDIENTS-

  • Meatballs– We use ground pork for the meatballs and combine them with grated onion, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. This combination will give you the juiciest meatballs.
  • Onion– Finely chopped onion for extra flavors!
  • Butter & oil– For sauteing.
  • Tomato– Though you can use fresh tomatoes, we used canned tomatoes.
  • Garlic– Freshly minced garlic is for more flavor.
  • Water– We use water as the soup base.
  • Broth– You want to use chicken broth, vegetable broth, or even beef broth for this soup.
  • Potatoes– We love adding potatoes into this soup.
  • Seasoning– For the seasoning we use salt and pepper, but you can add any of your other go-to seasonings.
  • Noodles– For the soup we use egg noodles, so fun for the kids!

HOW TO MAKE MEATBALL SOUP-

This noodle soup is kind of like a chicken noodle soup but with ground pork as the protein, veggies and potatoes. It’s so easy to make.

  1. In a bowl, combine the ingredients for the meatballs. Combine the ground meat, grated onion, garlic and season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a Dutch oven or pot with a thick bottom, sauté onions with oil and butter until tender.
  3. Add cubed carrots, sauté over medium heat until carrots are tender.
  4. Add diced tomatoes and minced garlic, and cook about 3 minutes.
  5. Pour in the water, broth and diced potatoes. Bring to a soft boil.
  6. Once boiling add the noodles and season with salt and pepper. Cook for five minutes and add in meatballs.
  7. Turn heat down and cook until potatoes are tender and meatballs are cooked.
  8. Add favorite herbs and serve.

We love adding Vegeta to soup as a seasoning, add to taste if you have the seasoning. If you don’t, purchase some – so good.
