Yaprakis con avas (Greek Dolmades)

You’ll Need:

1 lb lean ground meat
1/4 cup washed, uncooked rice
1 ts salt
2 TB oil

grape leaves

1 lb great northern beans, cleaned and soaked overnight in cold water

8 oz can tomato sauce
1 ts salt
1/4 cup oil

juice of 1 lemon

Procedures : Mix first four ingredients. Mold into tiny cigar shapes. Roll
each securely in a grape leaf. (Roll up once or twice from the
bottom of the leaf, fold in the sides, and then roll the rest of
the way. Don’t roll too tight: the rice will expand some.) Place
half of the beans in pressure cooker or large heavy pot with cover.
Lay yaprakis on top in one closely-packed layer. Place rest of
beans on top. Into water from beans put tomato sauce, salt, oil.
Pour carefully into pot. Water should be 1″-1 1/2″ higher than
beans. Invert a china plate on top. Cover. In pressure cooker,
cook 1 hour. In pot, cook 3 1/2 hours. When beans are tender as
butter, squeeze juice of one lemon over all. Serve with rice
