  3. Carefully drop the pork meatballs into the simmering broth. Cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through and no longer pink in the center.
  4. Ladle the soup into bowls, making sure to distribute the veggies, meatballs, and broth evenly.
  5. Garnish with chopped cilantro and green onions.

Note: For added heat, you can sprinkle a dash of chili flakes or hot sauce on top.
