Beef Meatballs in Misua Soup

Hey Lounger! Happy Monday! I hope that all is well with you and your family! Today, I’d love to share a meatballs soup recipe. Meatballs are a fancy way to dress up ground meats like beef, lamb, or chicken. A few days back, I decided to make a delicious, comforting, subtle taste of Beef Meatballs in Misua Soup! Let me share the recipe.

Misua, also known as vermicelli, is a thin variety of salted noodles made from wheat flour. Its origins can be traced back to Fujian, China. The noodles are not the same as mifen or cellophane noodles, which are made from rice or mung beans, respectively.

  • Let’s get started on the meatballs! First, combine the ground beef, minced onion, minced garlic, salt, pepper, bread crumbs, egg, and soy sauce in a mixing bowl. Mix until all of the ingredients are well combined. Then, depending on the size, make some meatballs. I made it about the size of a spoon.
  • Prepare the Thurai gourd by cutting it into a circle shape.
  • Heat your olive oil in a cooking pot. And set aside the meatballs after they have been seared.
  • Next, in the same pot, sauté the ginger, garlic, and onion until fragrant.
  • Add half of the beef cubes and mix well.
  • Continue to sauté for 2 minutes after adding the Thurai gourd.
  • Then, pour in the boiling water and thoroughly mix it in. Then add the meatballs.
  • Allow boiling, covered. Then add the basil leaves. Mix it well and season with pepper.
  • After that, add the Misua noodles. Allow it to simmer and thoroughly mix it.
  • Finally, season with salt to taste. 
  • Serve it hot with bread or rice on the side.

Quick Tips:

  • Misua is widely available in Asian grocery stores and markets.
  • Because it is a comforting dish, this recipe is best in the winter, cold weather, and for lactating mothers.
