    This recipe is close to the real deal. A few things I used to see my mother do different was to add the whole egg instead of egg white (ball will hold better) and add about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of rice to your meat before forming into a ball. One more thing, to add more flavoring, add 1 or 2 jalapeno peppers and some chicken bullion to the broth while cooking. Hope this helps.  -  10 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is really close to the real deal. a few tips though, the way my mom made it growing up was adding minced mint to the meat as well as the sprigs to the broth, use rice and flour in the meat nd use a whole egg. instead of using the tomatoes and onions in the meatballs add to the broth. use Chicken or beef boullin to flavor and add carrots, potatoes and cabbage. add lemon juice and hot suace after serving, Heat up some corn tortillas, roll'em up and dip as you eat the soup.  -  15 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is a very good soup. Lots of flavor. The only problem is the recipe doesn't state how much water and how much mint so I guessed at 2 c water and I used almost all the mint that came in the container, except the 2 tbs set aside for the meatballs. Turned out fine. I added cabbage, potatoes and corn to the soup and it was so delicious.  -  19 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
