Directions:

tablespoons lard or oil over medium heat. Add 1 whole garlic clove.
Let cook for 20 seconds, press with back of a cooking spoon to release
the flavor. Remove the garlic. Set aside. Brown the flour in the lard
until dark golden color, about 1 minute. Heat stock in soup pot or
large Dutch oven until warm and add flour mixture. Bring to a boil and
lower heat to simmer stock for 5 minutes. Taste and correct seasoning.
Heat remaining 2 tablespoons lard or vegetable oil in large frying
pan, add chopped scallion, tomato, chiles and the reserved 2 garlic
cloves, minced, stir well to combine. Cook for 2 minutes and add to
stock. Add cilantro and mint and simmer for another 5 minutes. Add the
meatballs to the stock and simmer over low fire for 15 minutes or
until done. This recipe yields about 45 mall meatballs. Comments:
Whenever my mother comes to visit, I always ask her to make me these
albondigas. I have tried to serve them at the restaurant but people
can't seem to get excited about meatballs. Too bad! It's a fabulous
soup. My mother always served it with freshly made corn tortillas,
salsa casera and refried beans with asadero. Meatballs freeze well and
reheat wonderfully. Recipe Source: COOKING LIVE with Sara Moulton
