EASY BBQ Meatballs
Naptime and Meatballs
My son is still recovering from whatever nasty bug caught hold of him and it has left him tired and feverish. I am a bit superstitiously reluctant to admit there are some benefits to having a sick 4-year-old: He'll snuggle up next to me to read books all afternoon. I have an excuse (checking his temperature) to press my lips against his hot forehead 400 times a day. We can order up one Christmas movie after another. And the naps are, temporarily, back.
So I was able to sneak into the kitchen one afternoon and roll some albondigas, pork-and-mint meatballs that I would simmer in broth with carrots and green beans to make soup. I had finally ordered the dish at a Mexican restaurant where we have become Sunday regulars and it was so good I doubt I'll ever order anything else from them. My soup couldn't compare, but it was warm and light on a cold, snowy evening.
To make the albondigas, I mixed 2 tablespoons uncooked white rice, 3 tablespoons bread crumbs, 1 egg, 2 tablespoons grated onion, 2 cloves garlic put through the garlic press, ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon cumin and a couple tablespoons minced fresh mint. Once that was combined, I mixed in a pound of ground pork with my hands, then formed 1-in. meatballs. I diced the rest of my onion and cooked it in a little oil until soft, then I added 6 cups chicken stock, brought that to a simmer and added the meatballs. Simmered for 20 minutes, then added cut-up carrots and green beans. Simmered another 30 minutes, then served with more chopped mint, lime wedges and warmed tortillas.
