    Cut the cabbage in quarters. Start chopping one of the quarters. Transfer to a bowl and salt it well. Add small amounts of white wine vinegar and mix it by hand. Let the chopped cabbage rest while you chop another quarter. This needs to be done in order to release juices from the cabbage and avoid any bitterness. Try to squeeze out the liquid and transfer cabbage in the crockpot. Repeat until all cabbage is finished. Add about 50ml of water and start the slowcooker on setting high.

    In the end transfer the content of the pan to the slow cooker and mix it in. Let it cook for about 5 hours in the crockpot on high level. Last hour, place a paper towel under the slow cooker lid in order to allow some evaporation. Taste it, it's ready as soon as the cabbage has a nice brownish color and is soft and sweet. Alternative to slow cooker would be to start it on the stove and as soon as it has heat up and is mixed with the meat and tomatoes to transfer it in the oven.
