Potsticker Asian Meatball Soup w/Shiritake

Courtesy of I Breathe I'm Hungry, I bring you Potsticker Asian Meatball Soup w/Shiritake. This is her recipe and instructions to the T. The only thing I am changing is the almond flour in the meat balls.

For the meatballs:
  • 1 lb ground pork (or turkey)
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup almond flour (I am going to leave this out to lower carbs)
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • ⅓ cup chopped scallions
  • 1 Tbsp gluten free soy sauce
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
For the broth:
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 32 oz (4 cups) chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 Tbsp gluten free soy sauce see example
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce see example
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
To assemble the soup:
  • 3 cups shiratake noodles, drained and rinsed see example
  • 2 cups shredded Napa cabbage
  • ¼ cup radish sticks
  • ¼ cup shredded carrot
  • ½ cup chopped scallions
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 6 lime wedges

For the meatballs:
  1. Combine all of the meatballs in a medium bowl and mix thoroughly. Form into 24 bite-sized meatballs and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees (F) for 12 minutes or until cooked through.
For the broth:
  1. In a medium saucepan heat the sesame oil and add the minced garlic and ginger. Cook for about 1 minute or until fragrant and sizzling. Add the chicken broth, water, soy sauce, fish sauce, red pepper flakes, and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for at least 10 minutes. Strain the broth to remove the solids and add back to the pan. Taste and adjust seasoning to your preference. Bring to a boil right before serving.
To assemble the soup:
  1. Place about ½ cup shiratake noodles in a soup bowl. Top with four meatballs, a handful of cabbage, and a pinch of radish, carrot, scallions, and cilantro. Ladle about 1 cup of very HOT broth into the bowl. Wait about 2 minutes for the ingredients to heat through, squeeze a lime wedge over it and serve.
