Pour the oil in a pot, add previously sliced sausage or bacon cook over medium heat for a few minutes to get it crispy.
Add the cabbage strips and the carrots previously peeled and grated. Pour in the wine, stir briefly and cook over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the broth, salt, pepper, bay leaf, a spoonful of tomato paste and minced fresh (or dry) dill to taste. Cover the pot with a lid and stew everything for about 20 minutes (or until the cabbage becomes tender) .
