dolmas with lamb and rice (and grape leaves!)

we had a lebanese night because we got our new lebanese cookbook. i love dolmas. these are the lamb and rice dolmas and they were delish. the coolest part, i think, is that you don't have to cook the rice beforehand.

i did a pound of lamb for these and cooked them in our biggest saute pan. line the pan with extra/broken/bullet riddled grape leaves and place a couple plates on top of everything to keep the packages tight and to hold in the steam. i also put some aluminum foil on top because this pan doesn't have a top.
