1st Meatball Recipe : ALMONDIGAS

Soup type of dish with Meatballs in Miswa and Patola, another comfort food...
(Miswa is a very thin variety of Chinese noodle. Cooking miswa usually takes less than 2 minutes and sometimes significantly less.)

3 tbsp Vegetable cooking oil
1 tbsp Chopped Garlic
2 medium size onion, sliced thinly
3-4 pcs. Medium sized, tomatoes, sliced thinly
½ cup Fish Sauce
1 pc. Pork Cube
200 gms. Miswa Noodles (more or less)
Sliced Patola
4-6 cups Water
30 pcs. Pork Meatballs

In a pot, saute garlic till light brown, then put onion, then the tomato. Saute well, then put fish sauce, let cook some more. After a few minutes, add 4 cups water, let it boil over medium heat, and add the pork cube. Once it boils again, drop the meatballs one by one in different points in the pot so as to avoid the meatballs from sticking with one another. Let it simmer over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes, then add the separated miswa noodles and shortly add the sliced patola. Simmer again for 2-3 minutes then turn off the fire and serve while still hot.

Note: There are times, when I choose to add less meatballs, I add peeled boiled eggs into this soup dish. Just add it in the last part of the cooking process. You can serve soysauce with calamansi in it as added seasoning on the side. The amount of Miswa noodles will vary depending on how thick you want your soup to be, the more miswa you add, the thicker the soup will be.
