Halupki (Stuffed Cabbage)
Halupki, also known as stuffed cabbage on the Russian/Ukranian side of my family, is a dish made of rice, beef, and pork encased in cabbage drizzled with a thin, sweet tomato sauce. My grandma Eugenia is 98 and she taught me how to make this comfort food classic. Every family has their own twist on this traditional dish. I hope you enjoy these with mashed potatoes just as we always do in my family!
I use Uncle Ben's ® Ready Rice, which is done in 90 seconds in the microwave, to cut down on prep time. Leftovers freeze well…that is, if you have any!
For the 1 1/2 cups cooked rice in this recipe, cook 1/2 cup long grain white rice in 3/4 cup water (simmer, covered, for 20 minutes)--or make a larger batch and use leftovers for fried rice or rice pudding.
