I've been wanting to make dolmathes for a long time (I bought a jar of grape leaves last year), and when I finally got down to it it wasn't nearly as labor intensive as I thought it would be.

  • 400 g ground beef
  • 20 dl rice
  • 1-2 tbsp dill
  • 2-3 tbsp parsley
  • 3-4 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 shallots
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • ~200 g pickled grape leaves

Steam rice while browning ground beef in a pan. Mince shallots and add to browning ground beef. Press garlic gloves into the pan at the end and finally drizzle the mix with olive oil. Add dill and parsley to the cooked rice. While letting everything cool a bit you can get out the grape leaves and preheat the oven to 190 C. Mix everything together and then put a spoonful in the center of a large leaf (or two smaller ones overlapping). Form a roll by folding three sides over the top and then tightly rolling onto the forth side. Place seam down on a baking sheet. When baking sheet is full, put it in the oven for ~20 minutes watching to make sure the grape leaves don't dry out too much. Let rest ~15 minutes before serving with taziki sauce.

Makes 50-60 dolmathes.
