    Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

    Stuffed cabbage is a popular meal in many cultures; usually a traditional Eastern European family recipe. They warm your insides and delight your palate. They are named halupki, golumpki and numerous other variations, depending on which eastern European country your family is from. The recipes are similar and include cabbage, beef, rice, onions and tomatoes.

    A cabbage roll (also stuffed cabbage) is a dish consisting of cooked cabbage leaves wrapped around a variety of fillings. It is common to the ethnic cuisines of the Balkans, as well other parts of Europe such as Finland and Sweden, and the Middle East.

    In Europe, the filling is traditionally based around meat, often beef, lamb, or pork and is seasoned with garlic, onion, and spices. Grains such as rice and barley, eggs, mushrooms, and vegetables are often included. Pickled cabbage leaves are often used for wrapping, particularly in Southeastern Europe. In Asia, seafoods, tofu and shiitake mushroom may also be used and Chinese cabbage is often used as a wrapping.

    Cabbage leaves are stuffed with the filling which are then baked, simmered or steamed in a covered pot and generally eaten warm, often accompanied with a sauce. The sauce varies widely by cuisine. Always in Sweden and sometimes in Finland, stuffed cabbage is served with lingonberry jam, which is both sweet and tart. In Eastern Europe, tomato-based sauces or plain sour cream are typical. In Lebanon it is a popular plate, where the cabbage is stuffed with rice and minced meat and only rolled to the size of cigar. It is usually served with a side of yogurt and a type of lemon and olive oil vinaigrette seasoned with garlic and dried mint.

    Popular among European Jews, and traditionally served on Simchat Torah, stuffed cabbage is described by Gil Marks to have entered Jewish cooking some 2,000 years ago. Recipes vary among Jewish communities depending on region; Romanians and northern Poles prefer a savory sauce, while Jews from Galicia and Ukraine favor sweet-and-sour, for example.

    Halubki (Stuffed Cabbage)

    This has been a Family favorite long before me!

    I use to love the story My Dad's Aunt would tell us about sitting on the 'STOOP' in Brooklyn in the summer time exchanging recipes (Italians/Polish in this case)

    Anyhow, I am very fortunate to have learned her recipe!

    Yes you are Katie! I have a few recipes from my mom, but wish I had gotten more of my grandmother's recipes.

    Stuffed cabbage rolls are always a favorite dish of mine. I don't make them often enough, now that I think about it. I don't have a steadfast recipe, but this is how they looked the last time I made them. The tomato sauce was made from scratch.
