If you’re looking to cook something a little outside the box, try this Halupki recipe and you won’t be disappointed! Halu-what now I hear you say? Halupki, also known as Holubky (Stuffed Cabbage Rolls), is a dish from the Slovak region of Eastern Europe.

The Halupkis, which are rolled cabbage leaves, are stuffed with deliciously flavored meat and rice and then baked in a rich tomato sauce. They are super tasty! And how did I hear about them? There’s an amazing street food market in my local town on weekends and they were served at a special stall with Eastern European delicacies. I had to ask how to make them! So this is a real authentic Halupki recipe, with a few of my own tweaks of course!
