Recipe of the Week: Albondigas


1 quart water
4 carrots, sliced
2 small potatoes, peeled and diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 1/2 cups salsa, medium or hot
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/3 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
1/3 cup milk
chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
In a large stock pot, bring water, carrots, potatoes, onion, salsa, and bouillon cubes to a boil. Reduce to a medium simmer, stirring occasionally, approximately 10 minutes.
Mix the beef, breadcrumbs, and milk together in a bowl. Form into 1-inch meatballs, and drop into boiling broth. Once soup returns to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low.
Cover and cook 20 minutes, or until meatballs are no longer pink in center and vegetables are tender. Serve with sprinkled cilantro for garnish.

  1. My kentucky wonder pole beans have great vines, yet no flowers. Planted in early May. Only fertilized once with vegetable fertilizer. Can you help?

  2. We had this for dinner last night. I’d never heard of it before, but was intrigued, so we tried it. So yummy!! Definitely saving this recipe for future use. Thanks!
