These small bundles of meat and rice wrapped in grape leaves are a favorite dish in Greece

  • 1 jar of large grape leaves in brine (about 60-75 leaves) or about 180 small leaves
  • 8 cups of water
  • 2 pounds of lean ground beef (I also use 1 pound beef and 1 pound ground lamb)
  • 1 cup of uncooked short-grain rice
  • 2 medium-large onions, finely chopped
  • 5 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 bunch of fresh dill, chopped (I have also used 1-2 tablespoons dried dill if fresh not available)
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh mint, chopped (I have also used 1 tablespoon dried mint as well if fresh not available.)
  • 1-2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • juice of 3 lemons or 3/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 4 cups of beef broth or water

Reese's is the best brand for grape leaves that I've found so far, but others have recommended Mezzetta, Aristocra...

  • 3/4 cup uncooked rice (not instant)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup minced parsley
  • 2 tablespoons minced mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 pound lean ground lamb, uncooked
  • 24 grape leaves
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 (8-ounce) jar grape leaves yields about 48 good ones.
  • 0.5 ounces mint leaves yields about 1/4 cup.
  • Doubling the recipe yields enough mix for 60-64 grape leaves.
