<br /> Green Tomatoes Stuffed with Beef

1 small tomato, peeled, diced
2 tbsp crushed tomato, canned
1/2 cup warm water or beef broth
2 tbsp butter, cut in cubes

200 gr medium ground beef

Garlic-Mint Sauce:
1/2 lemon juice
1 tsp dried mint
1 garlic, smashed with salt

Mix all the filling ingredients in a small bowl with a tablespoon.

In the meantime, cut off the tops of the tomatoes 3/4 of the way horizontally, leave the rest attached. Discard the inside of the tomatoes with a teaspoon.

Fill the tomatoes with the filling using a spoon and close the tops over. Place the filled tomatoes in a medium size pot. Sprinkle the crushed tomatoes and butter over the tops. Pour the water or beef broth in the pot from the edges.

Cover the lid, cook over medium-low heat until the tomatoes are done which takes about 15 minutes. Mix all the Garlic-Mint Sauce ingredients and pour all over the dolma. Cook one more minute then turn heat the off.

Place the Stuffed Green Tomatoes on a service plate, pour the juice all over and serve immediately.
