Romanian Meatball Soup | Ciorba de Perisoare


I give you here the recipe for one of the more popular soups in Romania. In fact, we don’t even call it a soup: it is a ‘ciorba’ (pronounced /tch-ior-bah/), which is a group of soups that taste sour. We have a special ingredient for the sour flavor – we use borsch, but not the beet-based one that seems common in nearby Eastern-European countries. I give a simple alternative here to easily obtain the same great taste by using lemon juice instead. In addition to the sourness, I love this recipe for the texture and flavor of the meatballs.
