Fried potato is great side for any kind of fried main dishes: meat, poultry, fish or even vegetables. And unlike the french-fries (which is kind of similar food) fried potato use much smaller amount of salt and oil, so I believe it is a bit more healthy.

If you don’t want to play with making broth yourself, canned beef or chicken one will work as well, this will also save you some time.
You may dilute it with water since meatballs will contribute to broth as well.
