Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl mix the meat, rice, onion, parsley, dill, oil and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Mix very well and shape into 1" balls.
  3. In a large pot add the stock or water along with the butter and bring to a boil.
  4. Add the meat/rice balls and cook at a simmer for about 30 minutes.
  5. If the soup is too liquid, take the flour and 1 teaspoon butter and mash together, add to the soup and simmer 1-2 minutes , this will thicken the soup.
  6. In a medium bowl beat the eggs and add the lemon juice, and slowly trickle 2 ladle full of broth to temper the eggs (beating constantly to prevent the eggs from scrambling.) Add to the soup.
