To make truly Mexican, truly traditional albóndigas, you need to use half beef and half pork. The meat mixture also needs a little chopped mint and a couple of other things that aren't in the linked recipe.

Here's a different recipe that uses all the traditional Jalisco ingredients:

The picture in the article in MC more resembles what I have found to be how albondigas are served in Jalisco. In a broth and not over rice.

The albondigas I've had in Jalisco are served in caldo/broth.
One term term that confused me when I moved here was sopa de arroz,it just looked like rice to me,not soup.

Depends on where you go. Albóndigas can be either served over sopa de arroz or as a sopa aguada.

I have eaten albondigas in Guadalajara, Tecolotlan, Melaque and San Juan de los Lagos. IOW from los Altos to the coast and points between. I have never been offered the dish served over rice. Cbviajero seems to have had a similar experience and he lives in Guadalajara. Not to say it is never served that way but where in Jalisco have you found them served over rice?

I don't live in Jalisco, I live in Mexico City. The fonda around the corner from me serves them with the sauce and meatballs over rice.

I live in Mexico City too. When I have ordered albóndigas at eateries in my neighborhood, they are served in gravy, usually with rice on the side. I love albóndigas!

Ah, ok. I visited your blog and the title of the page was "Albondigas de Jalisco" and included pics. I assumed you were documenting the way they are served in Jalisco. Plus your use of "authentic" in your previous post must have confused me. My bad.

Not at all. But the post is titled "Albóndigas de Jalisco, Estilo Diana Kennedy::Jalisco-Style Meatballs, Adapted from Diana Kennedy". The credit for the recipe goes to her.

The recipe credit goes to the Mexican cooks who have been preparing this dish for ages. She simply documented the cooking of countless, anonymous cooks from around this country.
