Tried these for the first time at the local Gyros shop. Sammy did such a good job I had to try and make them myself. Here is a recipe that I felt was closest. They make great appetizers as well as main courses.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Rinse grape leaves with water and cut the stem. Sauté onions with olive oil and add ground beef, pepper, and salt.
  2. Cook for a few minutes and then add parsley, dill, and rice. Turn off heat.
  3. Place one teaspoon filling in center of grape leaf with the ribbed side up. Fold bottom leaf up and then sides over the bottom, and roll into a narrow roll. Line them in a baking pan and arrange dolmades in layers. Warm up the chicken broth. Pour over grape leaves. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. I prefer them served with Tzatziki sauce.
  4. See Recipe #10750 for a good Tzatziki sauce recipe.
