Beer Bratwurst

  • In a large pot, on medium-high heat add bratwursts and bottle of beer and braise for 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat. Finish on a grill or a ridged cast iron skilled to make grill marks.

Potato "Kraut"

  • Rinse yellow potatoes and pat dry with a paper towel, peel and hold in cold water. Using a mandolin with a julienne blade attachment or a sharp knife, slice potatoes into thin matchsticks and place them in a bowl with cold water.
  • In a small pot, add rice wine vinegar, salt, sugar, caraway seeds and juniper seeds and heat until salt and sugar dissolve, then remove from heat and add potatoes, let par-cook in liquid for one minute then add ice to the pot to cool down the temperature. Once cooled, drain liquid and set aside.

Carmelized Onions

  • In a frying pan or skillet, on medium heat add olive oil and coat the pan evenly then add onions and cook for 30 minutes, occasionally stirring onions evenly. When the bottom of the pan gets dark with the brown bits, deglaze the pan with water and stir to get brown bits off the bottom of the pan as needed. Onions will be brown in color when done.

Whole Grain Mustard Aioli

  • Add mayonnaise, whole grain coarse mustard, parsley, thyme, salt, pepper and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Mix until fully blended.
