Ingredients Edit

  1. 2 1/2 lbs lean meat (Beef or mutton)
  2. 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  3. 1 tsp. pepper
  4. 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  5. 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  6. 2 egg whites
  7. 1/2 cup white wine
  8. 1/2 cup vinegar
  9. 1 tsp. tomato paste
  10. 1 stick cinnamon
  11. 2 bay leaves

Directions Edit

Pound meat in a mortar until pasty or grind several times through fine blade of meat grinder. Mix well with seasonings and egg whites. Form into rolls about two inches in diameter and four inches long. (A hard boiled, shelled egg may be placed inside each roll.) Dip in slightly beaten egg white, then in toasted bread crumbs and brown well in hot samneh or other shortening. Make a sauce with one cup water, the wine, vinegar, cinnamon stick, bay leaves and tomato paste. Cook meat rolls in sauce until meat is done and sauce thickened. Lift meat from sauce. Cool. Slice. Serve hot or cold. Thin slices are good appetizers with cocktails. Hot, the meat may be served as a main course, accompanied by its own sauce, and fried potatoes, vegetables and salad.
