LAHANO DOLMADES . Cabbage leaf rolls filled with beef, rice & plenty of fresh herbs in an egg lemon sauce. So homely and comforting, it’s childhood on a plate. 1 whole cabbage. 1/4 cup white vinegar. 1 Tbsp salt. Water to fill the pot. Filling. 1 large onion, chopped finely. 3-4 cloves crushed garlic. 500g beef mince. 3/4 cup chopped fresh mint. 3/4 cup chopped fresh dill. 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley. 1 tomato peeled and grated. 1/2 cup washed medium grain rice. 1 Tbsp dried oregano. Salt & pepper to taste. Vegetable stock paste (optional). Water. 2 eggs Juice of 3 lemons. Peel away a few outer leaves of the cabbage if they’re damaged or dirty & discard. Cut out the core of the cabbage, place it in a large pot and fill with water, vinegar & salt. Allow it to boil and gently remove the leaves as they pull away from the body and set aside. For the filling you can either cook the beef fully with 4 tbsp olive oil or keep it raw then combine all ingredients into the one bowl. Set aside & prepare the leaves. To prepare the leaves, cut out the large vein running through the the leaf, this will make the dolmades easier to roll. Do not discard. Then cut the leaf in half which is now ready to fill. Refer to my highlights to watch a more in-depth description. Line your large pot with the leaf cut offs & any odd pieces you cannot use to roll. To fill your prepared leaves, add approximately 1.5 Tbsp of filling toward the bottom of the leaf. Begin to roll up, bring in the sides to seal then continue rolling tightly. Place the dolmades seam side down tightly in your pot, fill with water (add stock paste if you wish) until it just reaches the top layer but not fully covering them. Place a plate on top & simmer on medium heat for approximately 1.5 hours or until the rice is cooked. Prepare the avgolemono by whisking the eggs & lemon until frothy. Scoop out some of the stock from the dolmades and pour it into the egg & lemon whisking vigorously. Pour the avgolemono mixture back into the pot and let it stand for 10-15 minutes before serving. @marys _kouzina . #maryskouzina #food #greekfood #recipes #meats #meat #familyfeasts #foodie #beef #greece #comfortfood #lemon
