This Asian Fusion Soup recipe is so heartwarming and deep in flavor. And it literally comes together in about half an hour. And I must say the best part in preparing this incredible soup are the Korean Style BBQ Beef & Pork Meatballs from Cooked Perfect®. Folks, I can’t rave about these meatballs enough. You know me, I’m all about making everything from scratch. But let’s face it, some nights, when it’s time to serve the family a nice delicious meal, that’s just not in the cards.
So, when I got inspired to try an Asian twist on one of our favorite soups, Italian Wedding Soup, I knew exactly where to turn to make this soup fantastic. Just look at this bowl of YUM!
The great thing about Cooked Perfect Meatballs is that you can always count on quality taste and ingredients. In fact, I love them because they are crafted using select meats, real cheeses, and savory herbs and then flame-broiled to sear in the flavor for a perfect meatball.
For this Asian Fusion Soup, I wanted to combine the amazing flavor of the Cooked Perfect Korean Style BBQ Beef & Pork Meatballs with a traditional Vietnamese soup called Pho, which is an Asian-influenced chicken noodle soup. The broth and veggies marry beautifully with the Cooked Perfect Korean Style Meatballs. And did I mention this soup comes together in only 30 minutes? Yes!
