Apple Sweet and Sour Brats with Sauerkraut
Authentic German cuisine with a little twist.
Serves 6 to 8 |
|12 bratwurst |
|1 jar sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained |
|1 cup applesauce |
|1/2 cup apple juice |
|1 onion, sliced |
|1 Tbsp. butter |
|2 Tbsp. brown sugar |
|1 large apple, cored and cubed |
|1 tsp. cinnamon |
| to taste salt |
| to taste black pepper |
- In a large saucepan, simmer sauerkraut with applesauce and apple juice for 20 minutes.
- In a large deep skillet, heat butter over medium heat; add onions and sauté, stirring frequently, until very soft, about 10 minutes. Add brown sugar, and cook for 5 more minutes. The onions should be caramelized. Add apple pieces and sauté for 5 more minutes until apples are just tender. Add to sauerkraut along with cinnamon, salt and pepper. Keep warm until ready to serve.
- Prepare a medium-hot fire in grill. Grill bratwurst directly over fire, turning, until evenly browned, about 5 to 7 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.
- Remove bratwurst from grill and serve with sauerkraut.
