How to Make SKILLET-BRAISED BRATWURST AND SAUERKRAUT

Step-by-Step

  • 2Meanwhile, melt butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add bratwurst and cook until lightly browned on all sides, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  • 3Add onion and 1/2 tsp. salt to the empty skillet and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in sauerkraut mixture, apple and brown sugar and bring to a simmer.
