Sauerkraut

Hi, all!

I have a question. I'm going to barbecue bratwurst. When I cook sauerkraut as well as a topping, should I cook it in its own juices, or just drain it and cook it in a pot?

Danke,


Fangorr

I drain it for the purpose of topping dogs. Or just cook it till the liquid evaporates.

The juices will help keep it from scorching possibly if heating in a pot - or heat in microwave drained already.

I like mine a bit browned.

Well now that you mention it so do I. But I always thought the brown came from the brown sugar my mother used to put in it. :oops:

I made some with the brown sugar for hot dogs one time (I've done it many times for ribs, etc. and it was perfect - but it wasn't good on hot dogs!!! LOL)

The restaurant I cooked at we would cook it in champagne and caroway seeds - now that was good!

So you cook the sauerkraut and the brats, then what do you do? I have been wanting to make this for a few weeks now.

Kabana - you can cook them in the same pot together with a can of dark beer. Remove brat put in bun then put kraut on top and I always have to have the spicy brat mustard.

You can also cook the saurkraut in some brown sugar for several hours on low with the brats sitting on top in a covered pan and just eat that way.

If this didn't answer your question just hollar again.

That sounds just beautiful.

It is the hotdog type arrangement, probably the simplest thing that I get stuck on.

Brats and sauerkraut is addicting right up to when your eyes swell shut from all the sodium in both!

Getting into cooking again has been great, but it also increases your appetite lol.
