Hallupki with Sauerkraut and Pork Chops
We grew up next door to Czech decendents from PA. They taught us how to make Halupki. I now want to write this down in recipe form, but can't find any recipes that made it the way we were taught. The filling was pretty standard - rice (cooked!), ground meat (beef or pork or both) cooked with onions, rolled in cabbage leaves. The assembly: brown pork chops in the bottom of the pan, leave in the bottom of the pot, add a layer of rinsed sauerkraut with caraway seeds, a layer of cabbage rolls, another layer of the sauerkraut, cabbage rolls, sauerkraut and then 1-2 bottles of beer. Put the lid on the pot, and let simmer 2-3 hours. Does anyone else make it this way?
