Delicious, a great way to enjoy cabbage. I too wondered about step 2, but think all the instructions were in step 1.

This made a great lunch with some sauteed potatoes. I didn't add the white wine but added a finely chopped onion in with the pancetta at the start and cooked the cabbage for longer than ten mins. I used any left over stock in a soup the next day.

Loved this, although there was quite a lot of stock left at the bottom of the pan when it was finished, which suprised me as I thought it would boil away to nothing. Still tasted great once I'd drained it though!

delicious as a side dish (although I would eat a plateful by itself). really easy and adds interest to cabbage.
