Heat oil in a heavy based pan, sauté onion, bacon and kransky until lightly brown. Add wine stirring till alcohol evaporates then add stock, cook for 1 minute, add tomatoes and simmer 5 minutes. Add beans, cover and simmer a further 10 minutes. Meanwhile repare cabbage by heating oil in a deep pan. Add garlic and onion and sauté for a few seconds. Add the sliced cabbage stirring to coat well with the oil. Gradually add the stock while stirring the cabbage until stock is absorbed and the cabbage cooks down this should take around 5-10 minutes.
