This meatball-and-noodle Pinoy soup is always a comforting dish!¬†It's made with misua or fine rice noodles, pork meatballs, and vegetables. Make this soup your own by adding grated carrots for texture and garnish it with leeks.
For the meatballs:
1/2 kilogram ground pork

6 cloves garlic, chopped

Make the meatballs: In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground pork, half of the onion, egg, salt, ground black pepper, and flour. Mix thoroughly until all the ingredients are well incorporated. Shape into meatballs, then set aside.
Preheat oil in a saucepan and fry each meatball until cooked.
