FOR ROASTS, CHOPS and TENDERLOINS

Cook to 145 F with 3 minute rest

Ingredients

12 bratwurst
1 32-oz jar sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup apple juice
1 onion, sliced
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 large apple, cored and cubed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions


In a large saucepan, simmer sauerkraut with applesauce and apple juice for 20 minutes.

In a large deep skillet, heat butter over medium heat; add onions and sauté, stirring frequently, until very soft, about 10 minutes. Add brown sugar, and cook for 5 more minutes. The onions should be caramelized. Add apple pieces and sauté for 5 more minutes until apples are just tender. Add to sauerkraut along with cinnamon, salt and pepper. Keep warm until ready to serve.

Prepare a medium-hot fire in grill. Grill bratwurst directly over fire, turning, until evenly browned, about 5-7 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.

Remove bratwurst from grill and serve with sauerkraut.

 

Makes 6-8 servings
