Escarole Meatball Soup Recipe

Ingredients:
½ pound ground sirloin
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼ cup pork rind “bread crumbs”
2 tablespoons minced parsley
¼ teaspoon salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup minced onion
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
5 cups shredded escarole, rinsed and dried
4 cups chicken broth
Pepper to taste

Instructions:

In a mixing bowl combine the meat, half the cheese, the “bread crumbs”, parsley, salt, pepper, egg, and ½ cup of minced onion. Mix well with your hands and divide into little meatballs.

In a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium-high heat. When it’s hot, add the meatballs—half at a time—and sauté until they’re golden brown all over. Remove the meatballs to a plate.

Add the remaining olive oil to the pot along with the additional ¼ cup of onion and cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the onion is soft. Add the garlic and cook for another couple of minutes. Stir in the escarole, cover, and cook until it’s wilted, about 3 minutes.

Add the broth and the meatballs, bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered for about 3 minutes.

Serve in warm soup plates, sprinkled with the remaining Parmesan and pepper flakes.

Carb Count: 2.6 carbs per serving. Serves 4.

Beef Stock Recipe

Ingredients:
5 pounds bare beef bones, cut into 2 inch pieces
1 bunch of celery, coarsely chopped
3 yellow onions, unpeeled and quartered

Instructions:

Start early in the day. It must stay on the stove for a long time.

1 pound of bones will yield 1 quart of stock. Adjust the amount of vegetables according to how much bone you are using.

Most butcher chops sell bare rendering bones. Get the butcher to cut them into 2 inch pieces.

Roast the bones uncovered in 400 degree oven for about 2 hours. They should be a toasty brown, not black.

Place the bones in a large soup pot, add the celery and onions, and 5 quarts of water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 12 hours. Add water occasionally to keep the soup at the same initial water level.

Strain out all the non liquid ingredients.

Place the stock in the refrigerator overnight and the fat will float to the top. For a very low fat stock discard this layer.

IMPORTANT: If you plan to freeze the stock you may discard the fat and then freeze. If you plan to keep it in the refrigerator and use the stock within a few days DO NOT remove the fat layer until ready to use. Keeping the fat layer on while in the refrigerator will actually seal in the flavor and allow it to keep fresh for a few days.
