Stuffed Grape Leaves Part 4 – Avgolemono Sauce

Posted by terrepruitt on June 5, 2019

Since my hubby loves Avgolemono Soup, I thought I would make some as sauce for the stuffed grape leaves since I recently experienced my family serving sauce with the dolmathes.  I actually didn’t make the SOUP because I didn’t add chicken or orzo. I would like it thicker as a sauce, but it was very runny. It tasted fine.

I did look at a recipe for this because I didn’t know how to reduce the ingredients to make a small portion. I bet there are several ways to make it.  I used

Lemon-Egg Sauce / Avgolemono Sauce

2 eggs
1/2 cup of lemon juice
1 cup of broth used to cook the stuffed grape leaves

Mix the eggs using a hand mixer.  Mix for about 5 minutes. Slowly – while still mixing – add the lemon juice. Then even slower – while still mixing – add the broth. The hot broth needs to be added to the eggs very slowly otherwise the eggs will cook. So the eggs get tempered by adding the hot liquid slow. Then add salt and pepper.

Pour the sauce into a pot heat it up to just BEFORE boiling. Turn down the heat and let it cook for about 5 minutes.

Place the grape leaves on a plate and spoon some sauce on top of them.
