2 heads of cabbage
2 lbs ground beef (or veal/beef/pork mix)
3 cups cooked rice
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
Put a head of cabbage in a pot of boiling water, and peel off the cabbage leaves one at a time.
Cut off the rough part on the end of the cabbage leaf with a sharp knife.
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.
Pour crushed tomatoes over Halupkys.
Cover and bake approximately 75 minutes at 375°.
Turn oven down to 325° and bake for approximately 90 more minutes until cabbage is tender. Baste every hour.
Serve with tomato sauce.
