    Buster's friend's Note:

    This recipe was a spur of the moment when I needed to cook up a mighty big Costco package of super lean ground beef. I made several dishes & this was the star - so much so DH kept saying, "Now where did you get this really good sausage?", as he went for this soup. He asked for it again, soon, so I reckoned I had better write it down. The spice from the meatballs really nicely permeated the soup. Gets better the next 2 days - beyond that I dunno as it is tee totally gone. Will try it with diced canned tomatoes next. FTR I used freeze dried onion & corn from Honeyville Grains - same measurements ( ) - I am really enjoying their freeze dried vegetables & steel cut oats. Do chill the meatballs & broth - this enables one to really reduce the fat content but doesn't sacrifice the flavor at all. I think I am going to make a triple batch & freeze the meatballs in broth - eliminating the chilling part of the preparation. Double it & freeze one - it's that good.
