Seattle is still in the dreary long winter season. Most of the day, cold, wet, and raining and make me want to go under the blanket and sleep all day ( I wish!).
I could use a pick-me-up of good spirits like a steaming hot bowl and tender noodle soup with meatballs and vegetables floating in a delicious broth.
Noodle soup is perfect for any gloomy days in this jarring winter season. A hearty and flavorful soup will instantly warm you up, make you feel better, and help relieve you from the stresses of rainy days. Nothing Chases away the chill like a cozy bowl of soup.
In the rainy season, when there's not much to do outside, I love to host a dinner party, gather my friends and host an inspired dinner with a build-your-own noodle soup bowl party. There's so much fun to do, like a movie night, game night, or karaoke night while enjoying a warm noodle bowl with every spoonful pack of flavor. And help us to stay cozy and warm this winter.
You can beat the winter blues with this bone-warming soups recipe! The best hearty soup recipes will leave you feeling full and super satisfied.
Meat Ball Noodle Soup
Recipe for 8 people
12 cups of water in 6 quarts in a stockpot
2 bulbs 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 and 2 Lb beef shank
4 candlenuts chop (or you can use 4 Macadamia nuts or 2 cashew Nut)
Salt to the taste
1 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of white pepper
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
1 Tablespoon of Beef bullion or mushroom seasoning (Vegetarian without MSG), or when these seasonings are not available, I would substitute with 2 teaspoons of sugar to enhance the taste.
3 small bags of Asian meatball or any meatball ( Italian meatballs are fine too)
Chinese Noodle or Spaghetti.
Celery 2 stalks
Boiled eggs cut in halves.
Fresh radish or Pickle radish (see the direction below)
Thinly cut all the produces and each put it on the bowls and serve it on the buffet table, and later can be an add-on and mix with the warm soup as to each liking.
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 thin broth or if you want a rich broth, throw 1/3 of thThere'sleavee brothThere'sleavethThere'sleaveeleave 2 cups of broth on the pot.
Fill the stockpot again with boiled bones and 12 cups of water in 6 quarts stockpot. If there's remaining broth, add water to fill the 6 quarts of stockpot. Cover the pot and bring to a gentle boil.
Reduce heat to a very low simmer and cook with lid slightly ajar ( skimming foam and excess fat occasionally)
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.
While waiting for the broth to simmer, fry the diced onion, garlic minced and candlenut, until slightly golden brown.
Add the peeled onion, fried onion, garlic, candlenut, and beef ball to the broth. 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 in the bowl later.
Recipe for Radish Pickle.
1 cup of water
4 tablespoons of sugar; you can add more sugar for extra sweetness.
1 small onion, sliced
Please put all of them on the big Jar covered and put it in the refrigerator for one night.
During dinner, let the soup remain heated at the lowest temperature, so it will help the soup always warm when the guest serves themself for a delicious bowl of meatball noodle soup.
I use Nuvawe Induction Cooktop, which is easy to use at any party. All I need to do is a plugin, and you can leave it alone; you don't have to worry about getting burnt or on fire because it is heat resistant. I bring it on my last vacation for light cooking.
Thank you so much for reading; I hope you enjoy this winter season. Keep healthy and warm.
