The “Mean Matzo Ball” recipe you’re inquiring about appears to be a play on words, possibly indicating a unique or creative twist on traditional matzo ball soup. However, since the specific recipe and its history aren’t well-known based on the information available up to my last update in September 2021, I can provide you with a general matzo ball soup recipe and information.

Matzo Ball Soup:

  • 4 matzo sheets
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or schmaltz (rendered chicken fat)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • Chopped fresh parsley or dill for garnish


  1. Prepare Matzo Mixture:

    • Break the matzo sheets into small pieces and place them in a bowl.
    • Add warm water to the bowl, enough to cover the matzo, and let them soak for a few minutes until they soften. Drain excess water.
  2. Make Matzo Ball Dough:

    • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and then mix them with the softened matzo.
    • Add the vegetable oil or schmaltz, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.
    • Cover the mixture and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow it to firm up.
  3. Form Matzo Balls:

    • With wet hands, gently form the matzo mixture into small balls, about 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter. Wet hands will prevent the mixture from sticking.
  4. Cook Matzo Balls:

    • In a large pot, bring the chicken broth to a gentle simmer.
    • Carefully drop the matzo balls into the simmering broth.
    • Cover the pot and let the matzo balls cook for about 20-25 minutes until they are cooked through and tender.
  5. Serve:

    • Ladle the matzo ball soup into bowls, ensuring each bowl has a few matzo balls.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley or dill.
