I discovered this meatball soup with cabbage a few years ago from a Mexican place and I have been searching for the right combinations. I think I have it almost right with this one. Very hearty and filling.

  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes. Add water and bouillon cubes; bring to a boil. Add cabbage, carrots, and potatoes. Boil gently for 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, form meat mixture into regular-size meatballs. Drop gently into the pot and add fresh and dried oregano. Reduce heat and let simmer until meatballs are no longer pink in the centers, about 30 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
