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?

    Ooooooh, I had halupkies for lunch on Friday. They are absolutely killer. I get mine at Lobitz's, right behind where I work. He also makes the most fantastic smoked kielbassi, and dang good pierogies.

    But, he doesn't make them THAT way. That way sounds fantastic, but he makes them pretty straightforward, cabbage rolls in the juice.

    Chef Susan -

    You are first person to mention use of kraut with stuffed cabbages - that's the only way I make them and wouldn't do without. Always wondered the origin - apparently it's the Czech version. I put tomato sauce on mine as well, though. I want to try your version. Thanks for the info!
