Directions:
Drain, rinse, and trim stems from one large jar grape leaves. Mix the above ingredients and place tsp. of meat in a grape leave. (Lay close to edge, near you, fold over and the fold sides in, and then roll toward opposite end, squeeze gently to remove air) . Layer in a kettle or stock pot, and pack tightly. Pour broth to cover and also add reserved tomato liquid. You can also place some of the chopped tomatoes on top if you reserve some. Bring to a boil on stove top, then simmer (covered) for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. You can stuff tomatoes, yellow peppers,, or a small eggplant if you have more meat than leaves and you can add to the top of the kettle if you wish or freeze. You can also make in a roaster for 1 1/2 to 2 hours at 350.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I always use beef or chicken broth. You may also use vegetable broth. To lower calories you can omit oil and butter however, the meat will be drier. This recipe was given to me by my sister Kathy, who learned from Flora Kouros, her sister in law who resides in Greece. A family favorite and requested treat from friends. Serves 8 as meal, 16 as appetizer. I call them Scooby Snacks!
