How to make it

  • Mix all the ingedients together, and form into round 1 inch balls. Put some water, about 1 1/2 cups in a pot.
  • Place the butter and balls in the water when it is just starting to get hot -CAREFULLY! Bring to slow boil.
  • Let them simmer for about 20 minutes and then let cool. Do not drain the liquid.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with a mixer and slowly, while beating, add the lemon juice ensuring that the sauce doesn't curdle. With a ladle, take some of the juice from the meatball pot, add to the sauce, all the time mixing.
  • Keep doing this until all the juice has been mixed in the sauce. Empty all the sauce on top of the meatballs and serve with some sprinkled parsley.

    This sounds really good and at one point in my life (when I didn't have any other recipes) I would cook it all the time. It's been several years since then and it's time I revisited this recipe. I'll be fixing it tonight and will let you know :)

    Hi Greekgirrrl, I made this for Easter dinner with my wife. I know Greek Easter is next week, but I got impatient. I actually made it with ground turkey and kasha instead of beef and rice. It was still very good.

    Oh I trust you, no doubt. This brings me back to my yaya's table. And it will only take me a tenth of the effort I would go through to make dolmades. Thanks!
