Let's Make It
Prepare Meatballs: Mix together, meat, bread crumbs, egg, spices and cheese. Make tiny 1-inch balls from the meatball mixture (approx. 20 tiny meatballs). Set aside until later.
Put water in large stock pot, add ground sirloin, crumbling as you put it in the water. Cook on medium high. (You will have to skim off the top until clear.) Lower heat. Add everything except the meatballs and escarole. Cook for about 1/2 hour.
Drop the meatballs in one at a time. Then add the escarole. Cook for about an hour with med/low heat. Place lid on. When meatballs are done and endive is cooked tender it is ready.
