This is one of the famous miswa soup dish in Cavite and only pure bred Caviteño knows its called "Almondigas" I have no idea how this name was derive.
Almondigas is a soup dish made of meatballs and miswa with greens onions.
For the meat balls :
1/2 kilo of ground pork
1/2 carrot, grated or finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp finely minced garlic
1/2 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of pepper
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp. of all-purpose flour
3/4 cup of cooking oil
For the soup :
5 cups of meat broth
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 onion, sliced
salt and pepper (if broth is unsalted)
2 bundles of misua
sliced sibuyas na mura (onion leaves)
Mix together all the ingredients for the meat balls, except the flour. Form into balls about 2 inches in diameter.
Heat a wok or skillet. Pour in the cooking oil until it starts to smoke. Roll each meat ball in flour and fry in hot oil, rolling the balls around in oil to brown evenly. Once lightly browned, remove from the wok or skillet and drain on paper towels.
Heat a large saucepan or casserole. Transfer 1 tbsp. of cooking oil from the skillet or wok. Saute the garlic and onion until the onion is soft. Pour in the broth. Bring to a boil. Add the meat balls. Lower the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Adjust seasonings, as needed. Turn off the heat. Add the misua and cover for another 5 minutes. Transfer to a soup bowl and top sibuyas na mura. Serve hot.
