    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 teaspoons mustard seeds (black or brown)
    • 1 teaspoon caraway seed
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 12 bratwursts
    • 2 medium white onions, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rings
    • 1 1/2 cups brown ale, such as Newcastle
    • 12 hoagie rolls
    • 1 cup sweet-hot mustard
    • 2 tablespoons sweet-hot mustard


    1. 1
      Place mustard seeds and caraway seeds in a small resealable plastic bag and crush with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in a Dutch oven or a large, heavy-bottomed pot with a tightfitting lid over medium heat. When the foaming subsides, add 6 of the bratwursts and cook, turning, until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Remove to a plate and repeat with remaining bratwursts.
    3. 3
      Reduce heat to low, add crushed seed mixture and onions, and season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions have softened and are beginning to brown, about 30 minutes. Add reserved bratwursts and any accumulated juices, nestling the brats in the onions. Pour in beer and braise bratwursts, turning once, until they are completely cooked through, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    4. 4
      Toast hoagie rolls and spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons mustard on each. Place a bratwurst in each bun and cover with onions.

      This was one of our favorite recipes at last nights german fest. We used only 1 onion and added a green pepper we needed to use up. We didin't have hoagie rolls so we had this with pumpernickel bread and sweet hot mustard. Made for ZWT6 for the Voracious Vagabonds

      Oh Dana, these were very good, first I must say sorry, for the awful picture, it's not too tidy looking and I hope it won't put anyone off making these as they were very yummy. I couldn't get sweet mustard so I made some from here on zaar. Sweet & Hot Mustard#35677 and I used Newcastle brown ale. I couldn't stop laughing when DH saw me put it in the brats, his face was a picture, he likes his beer. ha, ha, ha. Altogether a very yummy recipe that we enjoyed very much. Thank you for posting Made for ZWT#6 2010.
