Brats and Sauerkraut

Brats cooked in a cast iron skillet with Sauerkraut in under 20 min. 


If you are looking for a quick yet delicious dinner for your family this is the one. Something so simple as store bought brats transformed into restaurant style dinner.  One of my favorite parts about this meal is i don’t have use up too many dishes.

My husband loves brats and i love a simple dinner, win win for both of us. This would also be a great recipe to make while you are camping. As long as you have a cast iron skillet this would be to die for over a camp fire. Instead of mashed potatoes you can serve it with a hot dog bun or bread roll. Mouth watering good.

 Ingredients you need for this Recipe:

  • Brats
  • Purple Cabbage ( or any firm cabbage )
  • Brussels Sprout
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Ragu or Tomato Puree
  • Dill
  • Coriander
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cayenne (optional)
  • Mashed potatoes as a side

How to Prepare:

First you would need to get some color on your brats, saute them on each side till they are nicely blistered.

Remove them from the skillet and into the same skillet add your shredded cabbage and i like to use purple cabbage because color is always more appealing to the eyes when it comes to food. If it looks good and pretty most likely even your kids will be eager to try it. Add Brussels Sprout, onions, garlic and season it very well with coriander, salt and pepper.

Foremost stir in Dijon mustard, Tomato sauce and water, this where it gives that sauerkraut a good flavor punch. Now at this point you want to add the brats back into skillet and Let it simmer for 5 min. If you are using uncooked brats than increase that cooking time to 10 min.

Best served with a side of mashed potatoes or a good bread roll.
