Grape Leaves Stuffed With Meat

Grape leaves ingredients

Grape leaves recipe

  1. Wash fresh grape leaves, place in a pot with hot, salty water, and cover. Let sit for 1-2 minutes, and then shake. Remove the leaves once they change color (For pickled grape leaves, follow the same directions, but let them sit longer in the water, and sieve).
  2. Mix ground beef with diced onions, parsley, dill, dried mint, grated tomato, 1 tablespoon of oil, salt and black pepper, and knead.
  3. Lastly add in washed rice which has been soaked in hot water for 10-15 minutes, for avoid crushing.
  4. Cut off the stalks and large veins of the grape leaves (If desired, cut large grape leaves in half to make smaller stuffed grape leaves). Put meat mixture onto the leaves, wrap, and set into a pot.
  5. Add in half a grated tomato and 1 tablespoon of oil, and pour in half a cup of water from the side of the pot. Cook on a low heat until the leaves soften. Serve with yogurt.
