  • 1 c Long grain rice
  • 1 lb Lean ground beef

Wash grape leaves. If using fresh leaves, soak for 10 minutes in hot water,
then rinse in cold water. Wash rice. Thoroughly mix ground beef, rice,
allspice and pepper. Place one leaf at a time in front of you with vein
side up. Starting at bottom of leaf, place some of the rice mixture on the
leaf just enough so as to be able to comfortably roll the leaf, tucking
sides in. Place some leaves in bottom of boiler to keep rolled ones from
scorching. Layer rolled leaves in boiler and add lemon and salt to each
layer of leaves. Spread tomato paste on top and cover with water. Simmer
45-60 minutes until rice is done.
