  • 4 onions , sliced
  • 200ml white wine
  • 100ml white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp thyme leaves
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns
  • 2 carrots , diagonally sliced
  • 2 celery sticks , peeled to remove the stringy part and cut into 4
  • 8 garlic cloves

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/ gas 3. Heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a large flameproof casserole dish or heavy-based pan. Fry the onions for 10-15 mins until soft. Add the wine and vinegar, along with the herbs and spices, and reduce to a glaze.

    Add the carrots, celery and garlic to the pan, mix well, then lay the wedges of cabbage on top. Snuggle the sausages and bacon between the cabbage chunks before pouring over the stock. Put the pan on the heat, bring to a simmer, then cover with a lid and cook in the oven for 1 hr 30 mins, stirring halfway through.
