The most economical meat is chopped or ground, because it can be stretched with extenders such as grain or bread. This meatball soup, which has several names, is popular throughout the Sephardic community; a recipe for it is included in the first English-language Jewish cookbook, The Jewish Manual, written in 1842 by "a Lady."
