I made these last evening for Christmas dinner. They were delicious! I have been using this recipe for well over 40 years and it works well in a slow cooker.I enjoyed this recipe very much. My Polish family made similar rolls. The difference was in the family has passed down this recipe for generation after generation .

In This Recipe You Will Need These Ingredients :

  • 2 heads of cabbage
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 2 slices diced onion
  • 1 -15 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 1-28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce (in meat)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Preparation :

Step 1 : Set a head of cabbage in a pot of boiling water, Then peel off the cabbage leaves .Cut off the bumpy part on the edge of the cabbage leaf with a knife.

Step 2 : Now Combine all mentioned ingredients together except the 15 oz can of tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes,after that put a small amount (size of a sausage) on a cabbage leaf and roll up like a fajita then place seam side down in a casserole dish.

Step 3 : Pour crushed tomatoes over Halupkys.

Step 4 : Cover the casserole and bake it approximately 75 minutes at 370º.

Step 5 :Now we need to decrease the temperature a little bit so Turn oven down to 325º then Let it bake for approximately 90 minutes more until cabbage is mushy.
Baste every hour.

Tips And Tricks :

  1. I always Put tomato sauce and one cabbage leaf or two on the lowest part of the casserole dish so the Halupky won’t burn.
  2. Serve with tomato sauce.
  3. Instead of tomato soup you can you a can of crushed tomatoes and a can of tomato sauce.
