Stuffed Cabbages Rolls 


To prepare stuffed cabbage rolls, you start by blanching a large head of cabbage in boiling water until the outer leaves are tender enough to remove. These leaves are carefully peeled off and trimmed to remove the tough rib, making them pliable for rolling.

Next, you prepare a filling typically consisting of ground meat (such as beef or pork), cooked rice, onions, garlic, and a variety of seasonings and herbs. This mixture is cooked until browned and flavorful.


This dish is loved for its hearty and comforting qualities, making it a perfect option for a cozy family dinner or a special occasion meal. With its blend of tender cabbage, flavorful filling, and tangy tomato sauce, stuffed cabbage rolls are sure to be a hit at any table.

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)

1: Put a head of cabbage in a pot of boiling water, and peel off the cabbage leaves one at a time.
2: Cut off the rough part on the end of the cabbage leaf with a sharp knife.
3: Mix all ingredients together except the 15 oz can of tomato sauce and crushed tomatoes and put a small amount (size of a sausage) on a cabbage leaf, and roll up like a fajita and place seam side down in a casserole dish. I put tomato sauce and a cabbage leaf or 2 on the bottom of the casserole dish so the Halupky won’t burn.
4: Pour crushed tomatoes over Halupkys.
5: Cover and bake for approximately 75 minutes at 375º.
6: Turn oven down to 325º and bake for approximately 90 more minutes until cabbage is tender. Baste every hour.
7: Serve with tomato sauce.
