8 oz Water chestnuts
1 lb Finely ground lean pork
4 1/2 tsp Peeled and minced fresh ginger
Ground white pepper, to taste
1 1/2 tsp Soy sauce
2 1/8 tsp Cornstarch
Salt to taste
Serve as the first course of a traditional Chinese dinner or alone as
a light nutritious supper.


Finely chop 12 of the water chestnuts. Reserve the remaining ones for
garnish. Combine the pork, ginger, chopped water chestnuts, soy
sauce, cornstarch, salt and pepper. Mix well and form into balls 3/4
inch in diameter. These may be made in advance and frozen. Be sure
to thaw completely in refrigerator before poaching.

SOUP: 5 cups Vegetable Stock 5 cups Chicken stock Salt Freshly ground
black pepper 2 bunches watercress, chopped 3 green onions, finely
chopped Bring the vegetable stock and chicken stock to a simmer in a
large pot. Put a fourth of the meatballs in the broth and poach until
they rise to the top. Remove and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining
meatballs. About 20 minutes prior to serving, return stock to a boil
and add the meatballs. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes (Note: Meatballs
will be slightly pink in the center even after the second cooking.)
Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Turn heat to medium low.
Add the watercress and green onions. Cook, uncovered, for a few
minutes until watercress is slightly wilted and bright green in
color. Add the remaining water chestnuts and cook for 1 minute so
that they remain crisp. Serve immediately.
