  • In a soup pot, bring the water or stock to boil with the chopped onion, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Lower the heat and add the meat-rice balls.
  • Simmer, covered, for 30 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  • To prepare avgolemono, beat the two remaining eggs for 2 minutes.
  • Continuing to beat, gradually add the lemon juice.
  • Then add 1 cup of the hot broth by droplets, beating steadily, until all has been added.
  • Add to the soup and heat, being careful not to let it boil.
  • Serve hot, garnished with parsley.
  • Also, you may enjoy this soup without avgolemono, in which case add 1/2 cup canned tomato sauce to the liquid and reduce the water to 4 1/2 cups.
