  1. Step 1

    Cut the cabbage into wedges and place in a slow cooker. Whisk the butter, miso, sugar, tamari and vinegar in a bowl. Add stock, ginger and garlic and stir to combine. Drizzle over cabbage.
  2. Step 2

    Cover and cook for 2-3 hours on high (or 4-5 hours on low) or until the cabbage is tender.
  3. Step 3

    Transfer the cabbage to a serving platter. Strain the liquid through a fine sieve into a medium saucepan and discard the solids. Bring the liquid to a simmer over medium heat. Cook for 2-3 mins or until the sauce thickens.
  4. Step 4

    Drizzle cabbage with sauce. Sprinkle with spring onion and sesame seeds.

    In the oven: If you don’t have a slow cooker, bake the cabbage in a roasting pan, covered, at 140°C for 1 hour or until tender.
