Meatball Soup with Watercress

26. November 2003 Pork, Vegetables + Salads 0

Meatballs are so easy and fun to make even with the least expensive ground pork available from your supermarket. They make this simple soup recipe chunkier and heartier.

half a pound of ground pork
2 bunches of watercress, thoroughly washed
1 large carrot, finely chopped
2 stalks of celery, finely chopped
chicken stock
1 egg
dusting of flour
salt, pepper

1. Make the meatballs. Combine ground pork, carrots and celery with a little salt and pepper. Form golf-sized balls with your hands using a little flour to help them stick together.
2. In boiling chicken stock, slowly add your meatballs to cook until they all float. Simmer and add watercress until wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Turn off the heat and slowly whisk in a fresh egg using a fork. Ladle in bowls and serve.
