I grew up eating halupkies, as my family called them.  Many say cabbage rolls, blind pigeons, etc.  I wanted a taste of the past, so I found this recipe on the coal region web site.  I changed it up with a little cajun seasoning and a can of ro-tel. 

Halupkies - Stuffed cabbage rolls 1 head of cabbage (about 3 lbs)
1 lb ground pork
1 lb ground beef
1 Tbsp salt
1/2 tspn pepper
1 can stewed tomatoes (or substitute Campbell's tomato soup)
3/4 cup uncooked rice
1 onion, chopped
1 Tbsp shortening
Cut cabbage deeply around core to loosen leaves. Boil the cabbage leaves about 5 minutes and set aside to drain. In a skillet, add ground meats, onions, shortening, salt and pepper, and fry slowly for about 15 minutes. Wash rice, drain, add to meat and mix well.Place a tablespoon of the meat mixture in the center of a cabbage leaf and roll. Place rolls side by side in pot. Pour tomatoes over top and add enough water to cover. Add another tbsp salt and pepper. Cook 1 and 1/2 hours.
