    For the sauce

    • 2 large eggs (at room temperature)
    • juice, of two strained or three large lemon, strained


    1. 1
      Combine the ground beef, rice, onion, garlic, parsley, mint, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Add an egg and mix well.
    2. 2
      Pour some flour in a shallow pan. With floured hands, shape the meat into walnut-sized balls. Lightly roll the meatballs in the flour and shake off the excess.
    3. 3
      Heat 2 cups of the chicken broth in a Dutch oven, or large pot, until boiling.
    4. 4
      Carefully place the meatballs in a layer on the bottom of the pot. If the broth does not cover the meatballs, add a bit more broth until they are covered.
    5. 5
      Simmer, covered, on low for 45 minutes, adding more broth if there is less than 1 cup remaining.
    6. 6
      To make the sauce, beat the eggs in a medium sized bowl until frothy.
    7. 7
      Slowly whisk in the lemon juice. Ladle one cup of the pot liquid, little by little, into the egg mixture to temper the eggs.
    8. 8
      Remove the pot from the heat and add in the lemon/egg mixture, stirring gently.
    9. 9
      Heat over very low heat until sauce thickens and is heated through, making sure the sauce does not boil (which will result in the eggs curdling).
