Just before serving, combine the eggs and lemon juice and beat until thoroughly blended. Remove the meat-balls from liquid and distribute among S to 10 soup bowls. Slowly pour the broth into the egg mixture, beating constantly. Add salt and pepper to taste at this point. Pour over the meatballs and serve immediately.
