๐Ÿ‘ณBeef-Rice Yebra (Stuffed Grape Leaves)๐Ÿ‘ณ

๐Ÿ‘‰1 1/2 cups cooked medium grain rice 

๐Ÿ‘‰3/4lb lean ground beef

๐Ÿ‘‰3 tablespoons tomato paste

๐Ÿ‘‰dash of sugar
๐Ÿ‘ณCombine the first 5 ingredients, mix well (by hand is best)

๐Ÿ‘ณFill each grape leaf with about 1 tablespoon of the mixture and roll tightly, arrange the rolled leaves in a pot/pan of choice – you mat stack multiple layers

๐Ÿ‘ณAdd the remaining ingredients to create a broth and place an inverted plate over the grape leaves (this keeps the grape leaves from unrolling during the cooking process

   Yebra is ready when most of the broth has been absorbed and the leaves have expanded a bit
