How to Make Brewed Brat Sandwiches With Caraway Kraut


  1. Make marinade:
    Combine beer, onion, mustard, caraway seeds and coriander in large saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Add bratwursts; simmer, covered, 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Leave brats in marinade.
  2. Heat grill to high.
  3. Make kraut:
    Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onion and caraway seeds; cook until onion turns translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in mustard, sauerkraut and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to low; cover, keep warm.
  4. Make sandwiches:
    Drain brats; discard marinade. Halve brats lengthwise; cut halves in half crosswise.
  5. Grill brat pieces uncovered until browned but still juicy, about 2 minutes per side.
  6. Toast rolls, cut-side down, on edge of grill, about 30 seconds.
  7. Assemble sandwiches:
    Spread both sides of toasted roll with mustard. On bottom roll, add slice of cheese, 6 brat pieces and large dollop kraut; sprinkle dill pickle on top. Close with top roll; push roll down to mingle juices and ingredients.
