Grilled Brats with Quick-Cooked Cabbage
In German cuisine, bratwursts typically come with sauerkraut or red cabbage. We say, why choose? This recipe combines those ideas, with a tangy-tart braised cabbage that cooks in just a few moments. Cooking the brats with a combination of water and beer, if desired, infuses the sausages with even more flavor. Serve with German mustard and German potato salad on the side.
You can substitute another cup of water instead of 1 cup beer.
If you can find a pre-packaged blend of raw red and green cabbage with carrots, that's an ideal time-saver.
