Stuffed Grape Leaves

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dried currants
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 12 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 green onions and green tops, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 3/4 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 16 ounces grape leaves preserved in brine
  • boiling water
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • Lemon wedges and chilled plain yogurt

Instructions

In a small bowl combine currants and wine; set aside. In a small skillet over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add onions and parsley and saute until onions are translucent (about 5 minutes). Add rice, dill, pine nuts, currants and wine, salt, and pepper; stir to mix, cover, and simmer until liquid is absorbed (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and cool. Remove grape leaves from jar and immerse in boiling water about 30 seconds; drain and rinse under cold water. Cut off and discard tough stems. Pat leaves dry with paper towels, then place shiny side down on a flat surface. Place a rounded teaspoon of the rice mixture on center of each leaf. Fold base end of leaf over filling to cover; fold in sides of leaf, overlapping them, then roll up carefully to form a sealed cylinder about 2 inches long. Repeat with remaining leaves. In bottom of a Dutch oven or other heavy, broad-bottomed pan, arrange a layer of stuffed leaves, seam side down, close together. Sprinkle with some of the lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Repeat, making as many layers as necessary to accommodate all of the stuffed leaves; sprinkle each layer with lemon juice and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Pour in beef stock and the remaining olive oil, being careful not to disturb layers. Place a heavy plate on top to weight down stuffed leaves. Cover and simmer over very low heat until rice is tender (about 40 minutes). To test, open one of the packets. Remove from heat and lift stuffed leaves out with a slotted utensil.
