1 whole leg of ground lamb *or extremely lean red meat*
1/2 cup of pine nuts
Amt of all spice (whole) to liking (minimal amt)
*you can choose to alter what you put in your lamb filler*
tiny can of tomato sause.
How To Prepare:
You have to estimate the amt of filling for the leaves because of the varying sizes. DO NOT overstuff the leaves.
Layer and tightly lay the wrapped grape leaves in your pot. Lemon juice and tomato in pot and THEN add just enough water to cover the grape leaves. You want then to make sure that you have a plate or something heavy to keep the grape leaves from floating around. If they float at all then they will unwrap and you wont have Lamb in Grape Leaves. LOL
SIMMER ! NOT BOIL
Takes about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Just test for the leaves to be cooked.
Carb count per leave minus the dietary fiber is .6 carbs.
Pine nuts are only 4 carbs per 1/2 cup. So they are not even measureable unless you eat the whole pot LOL.
Number of Servings:
