Why I Love This Recipe

My mother always made this soup when I was little and it was one of my favorites. It's filling and delicous.

2 baby lima beans
16 oz ground beef

In a large stock pot, boil beef bones, roast, whole carrots, celery, onion & parsley until liquid is broth and roast is tender. Strain all and return broth to pot. Add chopped carrots, green beans, peas and lima beans. Cut roast into small cubes and add to pot.

Dampen bread with water and mix with ground beef, ground pork, onion soup mix, eggs and black pepper. Roll into small meatballs and drop into boiling broth. Simmer until meatballs rise to the top. Serve soup over cooked brown rice.
