1 pound lean ground beef (or turkey)
2 cubes beef bouillon
4 cups water
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, minced

1 egg
2 tbsp water
1 tsp chili powder (I use a tbsp)
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp cumin seed (I exclude this and double up on the powder)
3 carrots, sliced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1/2 medium head cabbage, cut into wedges
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

DIRECTIONS:

1. Mix the ground beef, garlic, onion, bread crumbs, egg, and 2 tsp water. Shape into bite size meatballs.
2. Heat the water and dissolve the bouillon cubes. Bring to a boil and drop the meatballs in and cook for 5 minutes.
