- Add onions and parsley and saute until onions are translucent about 5 minutes. Add rice, dill, pine nuts, currants and wine, salt, and pepper; stir to mix, cover, and simmer until liquid is absorbed (about 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and cool. Remove grape leaves from jar and immerse in boiling water about 30 seconds; drain and rinse under cold water.
- Cut off and discard tough stems. Pat leaves dry with paper towels, then place shiny side down on a flat surface.
- Place a rounded teaspoon of the rice mixture on center of each leaf. Fold base end of leaf over filling to cover; fold in sides of leaf, overlapping them, then roll up carefully to form a sealed cylinder about 2 inches long.
- Repeat with remaining leaves. In bottom of a Dutch oven or other heavy, broad-bottomed pan, arrange a layer of stuffed leaves, seam side down, close together.
- Sprinkle with some of the lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Repeat, making as many layers as necessary to accommodate all of the stuffed leaves; sprinkle each layer with lemon juice and olive oil.
- Pour in beef stock and the remaining olive oil, being careful not to disturb layers. Place a heavy plate on top to weight down stuffed leaves.
- Cover and simmer over very low heat until rice is tender about 40 minutes. To test, open one of the packets. Remove from heat and lift stuffed leaves out with a slotted utensil.
