- Place the ground pork in a large mixing bowl, and season with the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano. Mix thoroughly to evenly combine.
- Roll the ground pork into 1/2-inch meatballs. Set them aside to add to the soup later.
- In a large soup pot, bring the Chicken Bone Broth to a boil.
- Add the chopped carrots and celery.
- Once the broth has reached a rolling boil, add the meatballs slowly and carefully. Adding too many cold meatballs at once will cool the soup.
- Allow the meatballs to boil for 10 minutes.
- Lightly chop the escarole, and add to the soup.
- Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 1 hour.
