My Grandmother Matilda Koval makes these....and they really warm you on a cold night. Searve with mashed potatoes. These freeze well, and also taste better served the next day!

If you grew up as I did, you crave these things. I spent years trying to duplicate the taste I knew growing up. Came across a Slovak Catholic Sokol cookbook 1976 edition. It calls for pork & beef, but instead of vinegar, you layer a small amount of sauerkraut under & over the rolls. Not too much!!"
"Holubky" If you have to have this but don't have several hrs. to fix it, try this. Chop the cabbage, brown the beef & onion. I like to cook the cabbage a bit in the pan after the beef is done. Layer 12 cabbage, beef & rest of cabbage. Pour soup mixture over & bake 350 For about 1 hr. Same great taste- half the work. Don't forget the mashed potatoes & corn. Take a forkful of potatoe & plunge it into your pile of corn. Alternate this with your holubky. Corn, Holubky, Corn, Holubky....... Only then can you be a real "Hungry Hunky"
