      I really loved them. So did my guests, it seemed. The only trouble i had, which is not part of the recipe but a trouble with the tomatoes is that i had a hard time with the stem. I bought huge tomatoes and they have very big, spread stems, it was a bit hard to carve around that. Other than that, it was a wonderful recipe and will definitely be made again.

      The proportions and flavours were really good but I think that more detailed instructions on the oven part for the cooking-challenged like me would have been helpful. Since I also stuffed some peppers as they do in a Greek tavern near me, I was wondering if that changed the cooking time at all and if I should have put other things too. But it was the only recipe for yemistes that I found that had meat which is what I really wanted!
