  • 4 (about 2 lbs) bratwurst
  • 4 cups beer
  • 1 tablespoon Paula Deen House Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored and sliced
  • 1 Vidalia onion, sliced
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup sauerkraut
  • 4 crusty hoagie rolls, split lengthwise
  • yellow mustard, for serving
  • mayonnaise, for serving


Step 1

Use a paring knife to prick the sausages all over. Add to a medium sized pot, cover with beer and toss in a tablespoon of house seasoning.

Step 2

Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, and cook for 15 minutes, until the sausages are cooked through and firm. Remove the bratwurst to a plate.

Step 3

Meanwhile, add butter to a large sauté pan over medium high heat. Once melted add the onion and bell pepper and sauté until very soft, about 15 minutes. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Add the bratwurst to the pan in the last few minutes of cooking.

Step 4

Heat the sauerkraut in the microwave or in a saucepan placed over medium heat.

Step 5

Serve the brats on hoagie rolls with sauerkraut and peppers and onions. Add yellow mustard and/or mayonnaise if you wish.

Very good recipe

Very good recipe but good German-style sauerkraut is made with Caraway seeds. I always drain the kraut like my German grandma did add some sliced apples or applesauce in a pinch and a tablespoon or two of sugar. Simmer this on low for at least half and hour and you will be surprised at how much better this tastes. :-)
