Yabra w/Tri Tip Roast (Stuffed Grape Leaves)

 Yabra W/ Tri Tip Roast (Stuffed Grape Leaves)

Ingredients:

1 medium size tri tip roast (I used 3.5 pound)

1 1/ 2 pound ground beef

1 cup short grain rice

1 Jar (1 pound) grape leaves

About 10 cloves garlic

2 table spoons lemon juice (for adding over the water, when you cook the roast.)

2 table spoons for searing the roast

1 table spoon butter for the rice mix

About 3 table spoons water also for the rice mix

1 tea spoon all spice

1 tea spoon cumin

1 tea spoon spicy paprika (also you can use mild paprika)

1 tea spoon garlic powder

1 tea spoon black peppers

Salt to your taste,

 

All the spices split in halves

1/ 2 used for rice mix

1/ 2 used for dry rub the roast

 

Preparation:

Mix all ingredients with half of spices

Follow all pictures to make Yabra

Sear the roast before cooking

Important:

have a plate as you see in the photo below to hold all Yabra down the entire cooking time (even before you add the water, the heavy plate hold them in place)

Press down on the plate after you finish stacking them; gently add water, as much water as if you are cooking the roast alone.

Cook at least for two and half hours on low heat.

 

I added a little extra rice and meat, so I can have some left over, I cooked it and really enjoyed it with the roast.

Enjoy!
