  • In a large enameled cast-iron casserole, melt the butter in the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook over low heat until softened, about 7 minutes. Add the cabbage and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring a few times. Add the wine and simmer until almost evaporated. Add the stock, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until tender, 40 minutes. Stir in the orange zest and cinnamon, season with salt and pepper and serve.

Make Ahead

The cabbage can be prepared up to 4 hours ahead. Add the orange and cinnamon before reheating.
