Winter Style Melon and Meatball Soup

This recipe is surprisingly very filling and very healthy as well. The meatballs are tender and great tasting while the melons are sweet and healthy.


1 pound of pork, ground
2 tbsp. of cornstarch
a bunch of cilantro leaves, chopped finely
3 tbsp. of soy sauce
2 tbsp. of sugar, white
2 tbsp. of garlic, minced
2 tbsp. of ginger, fresh and minced
2 eggs, large in size and beaten
6 cups of water
2 pounds of winter melon, Chinese style and cut into small cubes
3 slices of ginger, fresh
1 tbsp. of salt
1 tbsp. of sugar, white


Preparation time: 30 minutes
Serves: 4


Carefully sprinkle your pork, cornstarch, minced ginger, sugar, soy sauce, minced garlic and chopped cilantro leaves into a medium sized mixing bowl. Then using your hands mix together all of your ingredients until the mixture itself becomes sticky and is evenly blended together.

In a large sized soup pan bring together your remaining ingredients over high heat. Bring your liquid mixture to a rolling bowl before reducing the heat. Let your mixture simmer for at least 5 minutes.

While your liquids are cooking, use your hands to roll your meat mixture into small teaspoon sized balls. Then slowly and carefully drop your meatballs into the simmering soup. Allow the soup to simmer for at least 8 to 10 minutes or until the meatballs have fully cooked.

Remove from heat and ladle the soup into soup bowls and serve immediately.
