Stuffed grape leaves

Ariana Bauer is my guest cook today, and she shows you how to roll stuffed grape leaves....

These are made with grape leaves, which you can buy in most supermarkets. The filling is a mixture of ground meat and spices as here:


1 medium onion
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 pinches of good salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 teaspoon of allspice
1 and 1/4 cups of rice, washed and drained
1 pound of ground meat, in this case 86% ground beef

Cook the onions until they start to brown and get that wonderful smell with the olive oil.  Then turn off the heat and add that into the rice with the spices and salt and pepper.  Add the meat and mix by hand.

It is a fairly easy recipe, as shown by Ariana.
