Meat Ball Noodle Soup

Recipe for 8 people


  • 12 cups of water in 6 quarts in a stockpot

  • 2 bulb of garlic minced

  • 2 onion, 1 peeled, the other one diced

  • 5 green onion chopped

  • 2 stacks of celery chopped

  • 2 Lb of beef rips

  • 3 candlenut chop

  • Salt to the taste

  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon of white pepper

  • 2 tablespoons of cooking oil

  • Friend Shallot

  • 1 Tablespoon of Beef bullion or mushroom seasoning (Vegetarian without MSG), or when I don’t have these, I would substitute with 1.5 teaspoon sugar to enhance the taste.

  • 3 small bag of Asian meatball or any meatball ( Italian meatball are fine too)

  • Chinese Noodle or Spaghetti.


  • Spinach

  • Fresh mushroom

  • Carrots

  • Jalapeno

  • Green Onion

  • Boiled eggs cut in halves.

  • Fried Tofu

  • Lime

  • Fresh radish or Pickle radish (see the direction below)


  • Soy sauce

  • Sriracha

  • Sambal Oelek


  1. Boil the ribs and 5 cups of water (just enough to cover the rips); heat it for 25 minutes, throw the water and strain the bones. I like lean broth.

  2. Fill the stockpot again with bones and 12 cups of water in 6 quarts stockpot. Cover the pot and bring to a gentle boil.

  3. Reduce heat to a very low simmer and cook with lid slightly ajar ( skimming foam and excess fat occasionally)

  4. This soup needs to simmer for at least 1.5 hours for the rips to get tender. The longer you let it simmer, the better the broth will be. Add more water if necessary to ensure the bones are fully submerged. Alternatively, you can cook the broth in a slow cooker on low for the same amount of time.

  5. While waiting for the broth to simmer, fried the diced onion, garlic minced and candlenut, until slightly golden brown.

  6. Add the peeled onion, fried onion, garlic, and candlenut, also beef ball. And let it cook for another 20 minutes.

If you use spaghetti to substitute the noodle, cook the spaghetti according to the package directions in salted water and 1 tablespoon oil. Drained.

If you use Chinese Noodles, read the direction on the package, prepare and put it aside. I like to cut the noodle a little bit short, so it is easy to put it on the bowl later.

I like to use store-bought fried shallot, but here the recipe if you want to make it from scratch.
