Seen this recipe on social media, I didn’t know that this is a thing lol! I had some leftover meatballs from my meatball pizza, so I thought I’d give this a try something different other than meatball subs or in a pasta… plus there’s is veggies in this for the kids…. good for soup and salad night (everyone seemed to like it and asked for me. I didn’t think this would be a hit in my house hold , but it was I had none left, I was surprised.) I added some seasoning not in the recipe I do recommend using your favorite seasoning.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/2 cup diced sweet onion
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 can petite diced tomatoes 15 ounces (not drained)
- 4 cups beef broth
- 3 cups mixed vegetables or 3/4ths cup each: carrots, peas, green beans, corn
- 1 package meatballs about 25 bite size
Saute garlic, onion, pepper, and salt in olive oil until onion is translucent and garlic is fragrant.
Add tomatoes and simmer 2 – 3 minutes.
Add beef broth and bring back to a simmer.
Add meatballs and vegetables, cover and continue to cook until heated through.(pressure cooker on high for 6-8 mins with a natural release)
More ideas below. I made mine in the pressure cooker. Cheese added to this would be good and maybe some mushrooms. (can also be made in a crockpot or instant pot and stove top.)Iam severing this with a garlic cheesy bread.(see my cheesy bread recipe on here somewhere)?????????
Add some noodles for pasta meatball soup.
★ Swap the beef broth for Swanson® Chicken Broth and chicken or turkey meatballs for a lightened up version.

★ Add a cup or two of instant rice for a rice and meatball soup.
