Introduction

You can thicken the sauce with cornstarch and serve as an entree dish, but I really like it as a soup (like a Greek version of Italian wedding soup). You can thicken the sauce with cornstarch and serve as an entree dish, but I really like it as a soup (like a Greek version of Italian wedding soup).
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 lb of ground beef
    1/2 c rice (measure it uncooked)
    1 egg
    1/2 onion, finely chopped,
    2 T Fresh oregano, chopped
    2 T fresh parsley
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    3 c beef broth

    For the sauce
    2 eggs
    Juice of 2 lemons

Directions

Mix ground beef, rice, egg & onion together, and mold into round 1 inch balls. Pour the beef broth into a large pot and add the meatballs in it carefully. Let them cook for about 20 minutes. Remove the meatballs, and strain the broth.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with a mixer and slowly, while beating, add the lemon juice ensuring that the sauce doesn't curdle. With a ladle, take some of the juice from the meatball pot, add to the sauce, all the time mixing. Keep doing this until all the juice has been mixed in the sauce. Empty all the sauce on top of the meatballs and serve with some sprinkled parsley.

Makes 6 very generous servings.
