My mom's Ciorba Sun, 03/2/08 5:20 PM (permalink)
This is my Romanian mom's recipe for Ciorba, a delicious, savory, and slightly sour pork soup.

2 liters water
1 piece of bone-in beef or pork
1 carrot
1 parsnip
1 onion
3 tomatoes
all diced
salt and pepper (or whole peppercorns)
bay leaf
boil until meat is done, strain.

For the meatballs:

2lbs ground pork
some water-soaked white bread
about 2 tbsp. dried rice
I egg, beaten
1 onion, chopped
salt, pepper

form meatballs, add to ciorba, let it cook

add lemon salt to taste (you can substitute a squeeze of lemon or lime if desired)
add 1 tsp tomato paste for color


BTW - My mom, brother and I all love to garnish our bowls of this soup with thin slices of fresh jalapeno.
