Stuffed Grape leaves or Dolma.

"Stuffed Grape Leaves" is one of the most delicious Arabian dishes I have ever tasted, at least my dear mother- (my husband's family) call him "guararish" so it is pronounced because to write it is not jejeje with that name I met them, I know them, they are very good and they finish so fast that by obligation you have to cook muuuuuuuchos.

so I could not find it when I try to see the recipes on the web, however I have seen in several pages and blogs of the Middle East that their name is "dolmas", and this is how appears all over the web. It seems to have a special name in each area. The truth is nothing more than leaves of grapes stuffed with rice and ground beef seasoned in a very simple way, but their preparation requires a lot of practice and dedication.

Each country in the Middle East has small variations in the condiments they use, which makes them a little particular, the Grecians, the Turks, the Sirians, the Egyptians, the Arminians, the Lebanese, etc. They do a little different, although the main ingredient is always rice and meat. Some make them without meat, others substitute rice for wheat, and others substitute lamb for beef. I have also seen that some people put lemon in the water where they boil, others fill with chopped nuts, etc ...

I will give you the recipe as my mother-in-law prepares it, that the truth is to suck the fingers.

2 pounds of ground lamb, remember to use cow.

1 pound of lamb bones with meat
