How to make it:

Cut the cabbage, peppers and tomatoes and mix well with the rest. Add 1/2 to 1 cup water and transfer to a baking dish. Bake at least 1 hour, probably even 2, until the cabbage is soft. Stir often to make sure that the cabbage on top does not burn to black.

This dish is more often prepared using pickled cabbage. Then no vinegar or salt is added.

If you are not a vegetarian, you may bake a chicken or ribs together with the cabbage, in the same pan.
