    Charmie777's Note:

    After having the best albondigas of my life on vacation, I searched high and low to find a recipe similar. I suppose albondigas varies from place to place, cuz the recipes were so very different!! This one is the best one I've found, with changes to suit our tastes.

      This was fabulous! I did have a problem in that I got diced tomatoes with chiles by mistake instead of regular. For us that made it much too spicy (my fault). I wound up having to drain much of the liquid and adding broth to it just so we could eat it. But, that helped me discover a change I will make next time. At first I diluted with chicken broth, but when I had it for lunch the next day I used beef broth and it was much better. So next time I make this, not only will I be sure to use the right tomatoes, but I will use beef broth instead. And cilantro is a must here! I can't imagine it would have been good with mint, but then I am not a fan anyway. This recipe is a keeper!

      okay it was put up to the taste test. this is the perfect recipe! i don't know what the comment below was all about. i mean cilantro gives this soup the perfect taste. i covered it after i added the meatballs and then cooked it on medium low for 35-40 minutes. (i had made the meatballs into 1 inch balls as well.i also liked that i didn't have to pre-cook the rice.) thanks again!

      This was....different. I'm not sure about the flavor of the meatballs, but it may be my fault. I had no fresh coriander/cilantro so used a mixture of fresh parsley and fresh mint. (I've seen other recipes for this with mint) I think I may have used too much mint as it seemed overpowering. The flavor of the broth however was very nice. I will try this again and make sure I use the cilantro as I'm sure it will be much better. I will update my review when I make again. Thanks Charmie!
